A commentator on my earlier post about CAD-BOM Alignment asked a question for which I don’t have a good answer, so I’ll share the little I know and perhaps in the comments section someone who knows more about it can fill in the gaps. First, here’s Dan’s question:
In one of your previous posts you mentioned that Siemens claims that in Teamcenter 9 we will be able to create two different item types using the same ID… this could be very handy for creating Design and Part items with the same ID. Can you shed some light about this issue? are there any official documents that mention it?
