Part Family Assign Item ID

Valued Contributor

Hi,

 

We have lots items that we want to use as part family item. When we upload excel spreadsheet on Teamcenter, TC reserves item IDs for all the rows/lines of excel spreadsheet (new items). But we don't want TC to act like that. Instead we want TC assign item IDs for part family items when we want  to use them. Let's say when i want to insert a new part family item to an assembly (let's say its Item ID is 130000) we want the new part family item ID as 130001 or namely the next item ID, not 135000 (if i have 5000 of new part family item).

 

Can we achieve this without customization? or will we do some customizing?

 

thanx in advance.

I don't think there is a way to have individual ranges based on the parent without customization USER_new_item_id(). You can create a specific Item type for Family of Parts (FoP) and provide a Naming Rule for that type but the part numbers will still jump around based on when the number is assigned. You might be able to do something w/customization like have it append a dash number to the base number but I haven't tried this.

Have you tried leaving the Part_Number field blank?

Yes we've tried but Teamcenter did not allow to save the spreadsheet also said the the related field should not be empty.

 

once again may be we try your attached links or do some customization.
