We have a use case where we have a BOM structure and when we click on the BVR it opens in Structure Manager.
It is noticed that the parent Part/Item if it is released and attains a status of the Prodcution. The child parts some of them still do not have any status , is there any preference where the child part/item should also have the status of that of the parent in a bom.
What revision rule is being applied in Structure Manager? Is your BOM precise (lines are green) or imprecise (lines are white)?
We are using precise revision rule when I click on the BVR , it opens up in the structure manager with "green lines"
I know @RandyEllsworth, i feel a bit bad now!
But, the majority of our BOMs have a CAD assembly. On revise they have to open the drawing to update it, so all they do is use a rev rule which downloads latest revisions into CAD. So, its not like it causes the users anymore work. If the users could toggle in structure manager i would bet a substantial amount of money the users wouldnt open the drawing in CAD to make sure the model had updated successfully.
Also, the change was made right at the start of Teamcenter implementation when users didnt know what they were doing. They are a lot more confident experienced users now... Maybe i could revisit this....
