How To Associate A Component Part With A Manufacturing Operation

Training Manuals Alphabetical Function List Back Print this Topic Previous topicOne level upNext topic

Usually the components in the product structure are required for a specific operation/task in the assembly routing of a product.  The task/operation must already exist before a component can be linked to it.

 

The following steps are to be performed in order to link a component to an assembly operation:

 

1.        Click on the Structure Maintenance tab.

 

2.        Click on the right "Method" button until it shows.

 

3.        Enter the number of the parent product for the component that is required for certain tasks/operations.  The system will open a drop down list, showing all numbers starting with the characters you have entered.

 

4.        Select the parent product from the drop down list by clicking on its part number.  All the components linked directly to the parent product will be displayed in the Linked Components list box.

 

5.        Select the component that is required for a certain task/operation from the Linked Components list box by clicking on it.  Click on the Engineering & Manufacturing Data tab.

 

6.        Enter the part number of the part to which the task/operations is linked, in the

         Task Part drop down combo.  The system will open a drop down list showing all manufacturing task part numbers starting with the characters you have entered.

 

7.        Select the correct manufacturing part from the drop down list by clicking on it.  All manufacturing tasks linked to the manufacturing task part will be shown in the "Manufacturing Task" list box.

 

8.        Select the task to which you want to link the component by clicking on it in the list box.

 

9.        Click the Apply button at the bottom right side of the screen to confirm the link.  The component is now linked to the selected task (highlighted in the "Manufacturing Task" list box).
