SW names and BOMs

Discussion created by Guest on Jun 2, 2006
Not trying to start an argument, but you're going to eventually find that saving a file with a rev letter in the filename (if that's what you're doing) is going to cause mass confusion and a LOT of extra work. Since Parts, Assemblies and Drawings are all linked, every time you make a rev letter change to one it potentially affects the others. You will find it very difficult to keep all the links up to date, and there will invariably be screw-ups that cost your company money and time. I strongly recommend discontinuing this practice, and I'm pretty sure most other users would agree. I've seen the way things are done at a lot of different companies, and I can say with authority that you're headed for major trouble.
