Where used options

The where-used is not making much sense....it does but doesn't. If you edit a part, its where-used no longer shows the assemblies it is used in. You have to go back and look through all the versions and make a list.

 

We don't always update assemblies when parts change. Especially on things like purchased items. We may update a part and add configurations to it, add a material if it was forgotten, or make other minor corrections that do not warrant us checking out the assemblies. But if you don't....you get no where-used.

 

Seems like the system should know that the part is still used in an assembly. Maybe we need another option box on the where-used tab: Show All, As built, As latest.

 

This is a common practise for us....anyone else have a solution or concerns about this?
