What order does BOM follow if I deselect 'Follow Assembly Order'?

Question asked by Omkar Deshpande on Feb 5, 2021

I use indented BOM with detailed cut-list, which makes BOM to show extra parent row for each weldment part. When I dissolve it, the whole cut-list moves to the bottom of the BOM. To allow this to happen, I need to deselect 'Follow Assembly Order', otherwise SW won't allow me to dissolve any row.


Now, my doubt is, which order does the BOM follow if I deselect 'Follow Assembly Order'? I mean, will it randomly change the item numbers of the other components also, or does it affect only after dissolving the rows?


Also, why does BOM pushes the cut-lists to the bottom whose parent rows are dissolved?
