There is a significant lack of functionality in the use of the Engineering Part Navigator in Aurena, I’m looking for help from anyone who can give me some ideas on how to manage this.
I have a parts list that is single level of 150 parts or 500 parts or, even, a 1000 parts. My objective is to establish Parent/Child relationships within this single level list of parts to, well, establish multi-level BoMs that are needed to build the ship. Imagine trying to do this!
We could use the navigator where we put it into Edit mode and cut and paste. Remember, there is NO ability to filter in the Engineering Part Navigator. Go find, say, PN=123 Find Number ABC. (we’re using find no, too, because there are many parts where PN=123. It is the 125th part on the list and I want to cut it and paste it under the 50th item on the list. Now, to get to this child part to cut it, you have to scroll (Show More), 5 times to get to see the part to “cut” in and then you have to scroll again to get to the parent under which you want to past this child. Wow! Our customer is seeing this extraordinary difficulty and is pushing back very hard.
We could work in the Consist Of tab, which does offer filtering capability but we don’t have any Cut/Paste functionality. We’d the ability to cut and then move to the Consists of of the parent and paste it there.
We’ve really got a problem here.
Any chance 21R2 has this fixed?
