Update Part Issue and References

Update Part Issue and References

This parts maintenance menu function acts on the currently selected part and prepares a list of all references to the part that have an active engineering Issue.

This list will include any reference to the part as:

  • a Bill of Material component,
  • a Job line item,
  • a Product Serial Number record,
  • a Purchase Order line item,
  • a Work Order assembly.

When used in the above, the part engineering Issue reference is held specifically (i.e. the parts master Issue reference field is not used, except as a default when the part reference is created). This enables you to have different Issues to the current parts master Issue and hence control engineering change more readily than otherwise.

With the list prepared, you can use the Print button to obtain a report. You can also update the reference records to a new current parts master Issue by selecting those lines you want updated, using the click, click-drag, command[ctrl]-click and shift-click mouse actions, and then clicking on the Update Issue on Selected Items button.
