Most products have numerous different configurations. Managing a discrete product structure for every configuration is inefficient and error-prone. Using effectivity, conditions to include or exclude items in specific configurations can be defined within a single product structure.
In the Product Engineering 12.0 application, effectivity has been incorporated into the BOM configuration management, using most commonly used effectivity variables, Model, Unit and Date.
Join this demo session to learn how easy it is to create additional effectivity variables and manage your scope, how to set effectivity expressions – as simple or complex as your business requires, and how to resolve structures fully or partially given the effectivity resolution criteria. You will also see a preview of what we are building next for managing effectivity.
