Family of Assemblies with Teamcenter


Does anyone here use Family of Assemblies with Teamcenter? 


As far as I understand from experimenting, the BOM in teamcenter/structure manager is the sum of all the parts in all the versions of the assembly, rather than differentating between different members. 


We're in the middle of implementing a new ERP system which will link to TC so this structure is not much use for a BOM for ordering materials, so I was wondering how other people solve this?

In our company we used FOA but with the increase of a members the performance of the tool dropped significantly, so we gave up on it.
In your situation you can use closure rule to hide line in a structure manager hou have occ = 0.
Look here:
SE ST9 + TC 10.1.7
