What's the difference between a minor, normal and major Item Revision? They're all the same, no?

Re: how to manage minor revision

All the revisions are the same
Organizations somtimes like to distinct minor revision from major revision by giving the revision number different format.
For example, If normal/major revision is in format of A, B, C...
then the minor revision can be A1, A2, B1,C1...
A->A1->A2->B->B1->C->C1

or if Normal/Major revision is 00, 01, 02...
Minor revision can be 00a,00b or maybe 00-1, 00-2...

Some organization decide to use minor revision before release of major revision for example:
00a->00b->00->01a->01....
and some decide to create major revision first 00->00a->00b->01->02->02a...

The revision is given manually by the user. Revise users should know if the revision they create is going to be minor or major and to give the right revision format.

Companies do have strange business requirements sometimes. A better approach, than relying on the user to create the minor revision correctly and to know the difference between a minor/major, is to just use a normal revision. Store the major/minor flag in a property and skip all the fancy numbering.

 If you cannot avoid fancy numbering and are forced by the business then you do have the option to write ITK that captures your logic (check out user_part_no.c).

Re: how to manage minor revision

If the requirement is only for the Product structure (assemblies) then using Baseline would resolve the issue.

They have special Revision ID generated that the regular revision ID's

 

However, this works only for assemblies.
