In prior releases, you’ve been able to make proposed edits to an assembly using markup. In this release, you can now view markups in a formal change. All markups are automatically tracked within the change. When the change is approved, the markups can get automatically applied as edits to the assembly.
When you view an assembly that is in an active change, the system automatically displays the assembly in redline mode. Redline mode is where any edit to the current working revision and assembly is shown with font treatments such as strikethrough and color change. Redlined edits include occurrence properties such as quantity, sequence, variant condition. And they also include assembly edits such as additions, removals, or replacements.
Change scoped markups provides the ability to effectively collaborate by proposing markups on a released BOM where you may not have written access. You can propose changes via BOM markups in the context of a change and submit for the review process. On successful review and approval, all of the proposals can be auto incorporated as solutions by the system performing the necessary BOM operations. You can take advantage of the workflow template delivered out-of-the-box and tailor it to suit your business process.
