How to achieve "as sold" product structure after applying variant rule.
We created a assembly structure in Teamcenter and configured variant using product configurator. When assembly is opened with structure manager and variant is applied. Can I save different BOM's according to variants?
1. Even though if it allow you to save the configured BOM after applying variants rule (if it doesn't have maturity status), you should not save BOM separately.
2. Prime intention of the Option & Variants is to have one single BOM with different variants.
3. In case it's a requirement for you, you can try for BOM cloning which will allow you to copy the structure and paste it under different BOM line.
Thanks for the reply.
Actually i tried BOM cloning but i am getting the whole structure. But I just want the configured structure to be cloned.
Thanks and Regards
yes, it will copy all the structure below the BOMline which you selected for Cloning,
if you have variants at multi-level then this is the limitation.
But if you have variants at only first level then you can apply variant rule for BOM, and select the all structure except top node of the assembly and paste it in another assembly BOM line.
that exactly what the first line of my answer suggest,
"Even though if it allow you to save the configured BOM after applying variants rule (if it doesn't have maturity status), you should not save BOM separately.
Prime intention of the Option & Variants is to have one single BOM with different variants."
But I have suggested the solution for the worst scenario where your requirement is must, to have separate BOM by configuring the variant rule.
please let me know if you find some another solution for this requirement.
Actually i have to give seperate ERP code for all variant configured structure, So i wanted a seperate structure.
But not getting any solution.
Ya sure, if i get a solution. I will definitely let you know.
