We are using basic Vault and have some parts that are obsolete or duplicates. We don't currently have the resourses to completely replace/purge them in all the assemblies (many of which are old desgns that may never be built again) in which they are used.
Our problem is that engineers keep using these parts in new assemblies and it doesn't get caught until the assemblies are ready to be orderd. Then the assebmlies have to be updated, vendors contacted, etc. to correct the situation.
Is there a way to block a part from being used in the first place without deleting it? Or some way to alert the engineer that they are using the wrong part?
