With, or without teamcenter?
With Teamcenter, the name should be the part attribute DB_PART_NAME.
Without teamcenter, I've always had to create an attribute for the name, but you can probably derive it from the file name, with some code.
Actually, with Teamcenter, the item ID = DB_PART_NO
There is also an item name (as mentioned, DB_PART_NAME), and an item description (DB_PART_DESC)
We usually use Item ID, rather than item name, for the "part name"
Item ID = "ABC1234-001"
Item name = "Widget, Cover"
Item description might be "Boeing 787 Rudder blah blah blah"

I'd rather be e-steamed than e-diseaseled
