Hello everyone, first post here and new to PDM, so forgive me for the basic question! 


I have an assembly and drawing im working on, and I need to add a reference part to the BOM. The part is currently checked out by another user, but I was wondering if I could add it to my assembly while it is in read-only state and save it just so it shows up in the BOM. I was going to just ask him if he could check it in for a minute so I could check it out, add it in and save it, and check it back in, but I wanted to see if there was a way around this. 


Again, sorry for the simple question, but we just started using PDM recently so I still have a lot to learn. 


Thank you!
