What is the purpose of the “Supplier Life Cycle State” - still selectable in MPN creation

What is the intended purpose of the “Supplier Life Cycle State”

Supplier is set to state = Cancelled

Still findable and more worse selectable?

Why can it be searched for and still be selected and assigned?

at MPN creation:

Hi Andreas

 

I am not sure what you mean with "no functionality". As I see, it is the same with other objects: CAD documents, wtdocuments, wtparts, ... Out of the box users have access to read objects in all states. Nothing prevent you from releasing a BOM with Obsolete/Cancel components at a lower level in the structure. This is where Business rules come into place. 

It also depend om how you setup roles and ACL. Adding users to Product Managers they can do anything 😉

Hi @ASodeik 

With configuration of policy (ACL) you can remove users access to parts with Cancel state.

You could also configure a business rules when parts are released using change management. The business rule will check stated of "related" parts.

Thanks for the quick reply - the answer helps to go forward.

Out of the box the supplier life cycle state has no functionality? Correct?
