What is the best approach to add manufacturing site specific information to an existing and Released WTPart?

Imagine to have the BOM of a production line that is located in multiple manufacturing sites....

We want to add information like the sparepart number, sparepart location that is specific to a single manufacturing site to an existing released WTpart within the BOM of the production line - and we do not want to have the need to checkout / revise the WTpart to add this information.

What would be the best approach to do that?

Hi

what is your Windchill version

before 10.2, there's the ERP Material business object that allow that.  But if I remember,  need to create each time a BOM View specific to the Plant (even if the BOMs are the same in different plant ...)

PTC has reviewed this in 10.2 m30

with a new Enterprise Data business object.  It is a versionnable object that can be set up to handle attributes/documents for a specific BOM view or plant

And the big new compare to old ERPMaterila, is that we can create a specific Plant Data without creating a specific BOM view

Hi Gregory Thanks for your reply - We are on 11.0 M010. I found the Enterprise Data Object in Type Manager.

Do you know how / where to setup the ink between the BOM object and the Enterprise Data Object?

Thanks,

Stephan
