Searching for CAD parts by specific attributes and where used

Searching for CAD parts by specific attributes and where used

Is there a way create a where used search that takes into account criteria for the object being searched for as well as criteria for the object it is used in?

Find all *.prt where
Category = 507 and
Sub_Category = 060
Used in *.asm where
Category = 337

Also, does Windchill have knowledge of the number of times a part is used inside an assembly. (We are not using WT parts.)

This is for Windchill 9.1 M050. Thanks!

Don't know about an easy ootb method for this one. It would be possible to write a jsp page that
would do the following:
1. find all *.asm where Category = 337
2. loop thru the components (structure) of each assembly looking for prt's in which Category = 507
and Sub_Category = 060
3. output the "matching" prts

Yes. Go to the details page for the assembly and then select "Structure".
