Hi there,

 

Anybody knows why Teamcenter create a reference with the Save As Item?

 

For example, using an item I do the Save As command and the result is referenced to the original.

Good afternoon, when you save as, an IMAN_based_on relation is created between the elements, so you see the relation between these elements

Hi @ArthurRM 

 

Do you know why that? I can't see the reason.

You can see it on the Impact Analysis tab if you create the parameter WhereReferencePOMPref=1 in Edit -> Options...

This is an OOTB relation, I think this relation is needed to track which object a new object was spawned from.

 

It is also used by some Teamcenter modules. Examples:

Some industries use this relation to trace the origin of the "problem" in case of investigation of part failure to see where the "problem" originated

It shows reference to the parent item from which save as item was create. Users may refer parent item to understand what all the changes that have been done to the child item.
