Manual "Assembly" Window - Bill of material Window

The Assembly window displayed BOM-list information and the configuration of the assembly:

  • NB of the subassemblies/single parts

  • Amount of the parts of the assembly

  • ERP/PDM-number

  • Status lights

The depiction of the ERP functionality (status lights) is by default adapted from the characteristic attribute table.

It immediately becomes obvious, if the subassemblies/parts of the assembly have ERP/PDM numbers and/or, whether a number can be assigned or not.

More detailed information can be found under Section 4.17.8, “ ERP for single parts in assembly tables / plinkcommon.cfg -> Block [PARTdataManager] -> Key "UseErpForAssPart" ” in PARTsolutions / PARTcommunity4Enterprise - Administration Manual.

The following image shows a complex assembly with subassemblies. No ERP/DPM number has been assigned to the highest assembly yet (red status light in the characteristic attribute table). Some single parts have already been assigned ERP/PDM numbers (green status light in the "assembly" window).
