BOM List in Teamcenter

BOM List in Teamcenter

BOM List in Teamcenter

Teamcenter 10, NX 9

Hi all,

I have a main assembly in NX and in this main assembly I have 4 different sub assemblies(lets call them A,B,C,D). In these A,B,C,D sub assemblies, I have some same components. When I want to order the components in main assembly, I send it to structure manager and from there i export it to excel. But in the excel list these same components in A,B,C,D are shown each time for each sub assemblies.
My question is: can we pack the same components as "X component: Quantity: 4" automatically before exporting to excel?

Thanks in advance!

RE: BOM List in Teamcenter

I have same problem, anybody?

RE: BOM List in Teamcenter

Are you trying to do this as a one off in Excel or have it stored in TC?

One idea would be to flatten the BOM. You could create a separate BOM style in Teamcenter that would hold the flattened BOM. Or you could write some VBA in excel to output part totals in a separate column.


RE: BOM List in Teamcenter

I want to have it sorted in TC.

For example, if I want to order X component, no matter in what sub-assembly it is, I want to get the total quantity in one line. It should not be so difficult task but how to do it? :)
