 Enhancements for Product Structure Tree


This feature enables you to do the following for the product structure tree:

  • Tailor the design and product views in the Show dropdown to suit the requirements of different user roles and provide more comprehensive content.

  • Use the product view types available for the product structure tree to display non-configurable structures (material BOMs). These views provide both a multi-level and a multi-structure display.

  • Use design view types to display bill of documents (BoD) structures as part of the structure explosion and define which BoD is used for digital mockup viewing and how this BoD is exploded (for example, as saved or latest released version).

  • In addition, individual users can define user-specific view settings via their User Settings.
