Exluded from BOM in SOLIDWORKS does not update in PDM

Lately I've had a few assemblies in PDM, which have a component Excluded from BOM in SOLIDWORKS but that component still appears in BOM in PDM.

This is a truly annoying issue since we export BOMs from PDM to our ERP system. You can imagine a possible mess that is caused by components that should not be included in assemblies in production line.


I haven't been able to figure out a reason for this. Nevertheless, I have a feeling it might have something to do with configurations. The problematic assemblies have had two configurations and somehow it has been so that in another configurations excluded from bom does work but not in another one.



In SW  - component is excluded from bom as supposed.



In PDM - component is still in BOM


Has anyone here come across with such a behaviour?
