Multiple selection for numbering and naming components


Hello Everyone,


I have been looking for a solution in either NX 10 or in Teamcenter 10.1 to number and name our product components following some rules to describe the types and the name descriptions, e.g.:

Bearings (tapered, cylindrical, ball, needle)

1st, 2nd, 3th, reverse, etc. - speed Gear

1st, 2nd, 3th, reverse, etc. - Fork

Main, input, output, counter - Shaft

While we use also different codes to define these components as:

TN, EN, BA and so on, and finally a consecutive number.

The objective is to unifiy our component number and name system.

I wonder which one could be the better approach to develop a programming in NX or Teamcenter and the tools to accomplish this. On my opinion, this could be easier to do in NX.
