Classification Column on Structure Manager

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if it was possible to show the classification ICOS contained by the parent of a revision on the BOM view offered by the Structure Manager. That would allow me to control revisions easily when the parent item, for example an Icecream, is classified as 'Cold' by not even trying to create a 'Hot' variant as the Class 'Cold' would be shown in its corresponding column. I prefer to carry information about items in their properties and classification and avoid putting it on its name, but I cannot find any method to expose a property value or the ICOs it 'belongs to', forcing me to name the Item as COLD icecream, with COLD chocolate. I found a column that indicates when the Item is classified or not, but that does not give me the depth of details I am asking for.

Item Classified, as you have found, tells you if the item has been classified.
Item Subclass Name (or Item Revision Subclass Name) tells you which class the Item (or Item Revision) was classified with, but it does not appear that you can expose the attributes or values assigned to that class/ICO.

Hello Ramon,

 

 'bl_rev_fnd0IcsClassNames' will show the class name.

May be it will meet your requirement half way!

Hello Harish,
I imagine it will provide the same results than the ones stated by Ben. Now I wonder if those results may be used in rules to distinguish between variants. I will give it a try. If they do, it will allow me to eliminate properties from names, making my BOMBs more beautiful, my very beautiful VBBOMs.
