When I start working on a bigger project there will probably be same parts used throughout different subassemblies - ribs, smaller simple plates on weldments, etc. But these parts will have only one common drawing. On most of my projects the people on workfloor have a wish that there would be total quantity of these parts on their drawings. I must say that quantity of parts is accesible from BOMs already, but sometimes they have to check different BOMs to get total number of parts.
Is it possible in some sort to get total number of these parts from different subassemblies to drawing so that it also updates as the quantity changes? One thing that may help is that when I start a project I always have one main assembly where all subassemblies for that projects are located. So total number of parts is accessible from there. I just don't know how to transfer it to part drawing. Regards and thanks for answer in advance.
