Where used in EPDM - Only if Un-suppressed

Question asked by Shawn Casebolt on Jun 23, 2017

Does anyone know of a way to search EPDM for where used on a part / assy and have the results return ONLY assy's in which the component is un-suppressed?


We have many sub assy's in which we have multiple parts (options) contained within them.  We leave the options suppressed that the customer does not choose, but do not delete them out.  This is because at any point during the build,  they can get added and it is very efficient to be able to just open the assy and un-suppress.


Our problem comes when we have a problematic part, or and ECO change affecting a certain part and we want to search the vault to see what jobs contain this.  The where used function returns every assy / job.  Whether it is surpressed or not.


Any help is appreciated.
