Is there a way to control the requirement IDs for PMIs?
We would like to assign our own PMI Requirement ID. Currently, the IDs are assigned in sequential order as they are created. If one is deleted and recreated, it will be incremented to the last available ID. So, if you edited your model multiple times or done a save as, it might be in the 10,000s.
Not sure what you mean by a "PMI Requirement ID". Could you be a bit more detailed in your explanation of what it is that you're attempting to do? Also what version of NX are you running?
Internal to NX, “PMI Requirement ID” is a key Identifier for integration with NX CMM and other NX apps.
If you do a Info->All PMI, this PMI ID gets reported in the excel spreadsheet.
Is there a way a PMI ID is guaranteed to be unique within the part and persistent through the entire life of that part? Can we assign our own PMI IDs.
There has been an official Enhancement Request submitted through GTAC. Please check the what's new documentation in future new releases of NX or contact GTAC for assistance in getting updates on this ER.
You may also contact support to provide your information in the form of an IR to add to the ER.
Please private message me through the community website if you would like to know which ER this applies to.
Have you considered applying a Business Modifier to your PMI objects? Business modifiers let you embed additional business or process information into PMI objects. Although these modifiers do not appear as visual items in the graphics window, they can be seen and edited in the Details section of the Part Navigator, are included in PMI reports, and are available to downstream users of PMI object data.
There are four specific types of Business Modifiers that you can apply to a PMI object. To see what they are, you need to expand the PMI node in the Part Navigator, right-click a PMI object, and select Add Business Modifier from the shortcut menu.
