Viewing Alternate BOMs

Viewing Alternate BOMs

I have a question about viewing Alternate BOMs.

We have many assemblies that contain an Alternate BOM and many that do not.  We only use the Design view in our organization. When we search for Part Numbers we can see the Alt BOM show up in the search table.  That much is clear.

But I'm wondering if there's any way to flag a WTPart as having an Alt BOM for our general Users. That is , some way to say that THIS WTPart has an Alt BOM, and THAT WTPart does not. 

I'm hoping for something obvious to the more casual or general User.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Viewing Alternate BOMs

James,

 

One way to achieve this would be to implement a custom data utility which would check the variation1 and variation2 values for other WTParts having the same master and display some icon or glyph indicating to the user that the part has an alternate BOM.
