BOM representing current LOD

Status: New Idea
by jsmith923 on ‎10-17-2013 09:56 AM

I would like the ability for the BOM's to only show what is currently shown in a Level of Detail.  I work on huge projects that get released in Phases (months apart) and want to keep all the parts in one BOM, but for each Phase, finished goods will be reused and I want to keep the item numbers the same, but I don't want a culmulative BOM, just one based on the current Level of Detail.  This will help with installation drawings (showing the parts that would be shipped with that particular Phase).

If you do this using View Representations instead of LOD (or copy your LOD's to View Reps), you can filter your parts list by View Rep.


It's not exactly what you're asking for (works in the parts list instead of BOM, for one thing), but it might be an improvement over however you are handling this currently.
