Cleanup of Toolbox configurations/properties

Hey guys, hope you can provide some direction.


Our common/shared toolbox has some issues. The first one I’m diving into is with our PEMs. They have had a custom property, Material, added to them with possible values of SST, Alloy STL, 316 SST, 18-8 SST, & Brass. Since the PEMs already have material specified in their Type.


This means we have lots of bad and confusing parts. i.e. Type: Steel with Material: Brass etc.


I’d like to get rid of the material property, but am concerned with what that will do to all of our existing assemblies that use PEMs from the toolbox.


We are using Workgroup PDM (with some legacy data in network folders) with the toolbox set to Create Configurations and we are using SW2013.


Thanks for any help or insight you can provide.
