Portfolio maintenance without touching shipped products

  1. Hi,

 

In my previous post I explained that our company has a portfolio with standard products.

If we a sell customer special product (happens all the time Smiley Very Happy), we use a standard product as a starting point for engineering: http://community.plm.automation.siemens.com/t5/Teamcenter-Users-Forum/Need-revision-rule-quot-latest...

 

I we store both standard and special products in Teamcenter, how would I perform maintenance on the standard products only?

 

Example: a hinge is no longer available, so we need to replace it for another brand/type. This requires a new revision or even part no. for the parent assy's it is used in. If I perform a where used action for the hinge, I cannot tell the standard parent assy's apart from the customer specific parent assy's. It is of no use to us to modify all one-off products we built in the past.

 

Does the PLM industry has an answer for this?
