WPA - Indication of Subpart when viewing Material Content
In Windchill Product Analytics, when viewing the Material Content tab of the Supplier Part, there should be some kind of indication so users can easily identify different subparts.
Just as Substances have a differing color for the substance breakdown and total mass, there should be something similar for subparts, clearly delineating each subpart. In a large BOM, it can be very difficult to identify the separate subparts, especially when they contain similar names.
Some possible suggestions include –alternating back ground shading each subpart, only show the subpart name for the first material, making first subpart name in a series bold, etc
UPDATE - This capability is available with the 10.1. M010 PTC Windchill Product Analytics release.
In the 10.1. M010 release WPA now has this capability. E.g. on the supplier part info page when opening the Environmental Compliance - Material Content tab, the full material content tree is shown - including the subpart structure. We list them as "components" and we also distinguish "semi-finished components" in the tree.
