Just trying to decide what's the best way to organize a component catalog.
All too many components are modular, so that you can extend their functionality.
AcadE supports at least 2 ways to do this. ASSYCODE/LIST and MULTIPLE CATALOG.
My test show that ASSYCODE/LIST is "nice", but doesn't go all the way.
I've read that some users have panel components with the MFG/CAT-values already set. Problem is, many of my customers don't draw panel drawings.
What some customers would like, is to have a catalog code like
ANd this would give us a green pushbutton woth 1 NO and 1 NC contact in the BOM.
However.. in the BOM, CUSTOMERNAME and PBGN11 would also appear as a part to be ordered.. But.. this is only a "dummy" part that should contain all sub-parts needed to build this pushbutton.
So... Any tips on how to solve this... May of our customers are used to other CAE-solutions that handles this, so we want to make AcadE as good as possible to get these sales.
