I am trying to convert an eBOM to an mBOM in MPM Link.
The steps that I use to convert an eBOM to an mBOM are
1) Create a new manufacturing part number (View - Manufacturing) 2) Checkout the manufacturing part that was created. 3) Open an eBOM in another MPM Explorer 4) Copy the eBOM structure to the new Manufacturing Part created. 5) A new window opens saying "Create Children from Upstream BOM" 6) Select "New View" in the paste As column 7) The eBOM structure is copied under the Manufacturing part that was created.
But an alert is thrown saying "No Equivalent Occurence link will be created".
For the copied parts from eBOM only Equivalent Link is created. Equivalent Occurrence link is not created for any of the parts.
In the File -> Perference -> menu in MPM Explorer I have select the following options.
"Upstream Equivalence Calculation Enabled = true" "Dowstream Equivalence Calculation Enabled = true" "Upstream Equivalence Occurrence Status enabled = true" "Downstream Equivalence Occurrence Status enabled = true" "Pasting Parts = Paste with associative BOM Links"
I am not sure If am converting the eBOM to mBOM in the right way. Please advise.
