References Tabs

Before editing a system rule, ensure that no other users are using the system. After editing a system rule, restart your PDXpert client application.

Purpose

Determines whether part and document records' References tabs will accept child parts or documents.

Description

True: Allows items of the specified class to be added onto the item's References list.

False: Blocks items of the specified class from being added onto the item's References list.

Data type

True/False

Recommended or default value

Parts

If both checkboxes are cleared, then the References tab is not shown on part records.

References accept parts
Default is True. Set as True if you allow part records to identify other parts as references (for example, designed parts may identify tooling or fixtures).
References accept documents
Default is True. Set as True if you allow part records to identify documents as references (for example, assemblies may identify assembly instructions).

Documents

If both checkboxes are cleared, then the References tab is not shown on document records.

References accept parts
Default is False. Set as True if you allow document records to identify parts as references.
References accept documents
Default is True. Set as True if you allow document records to identify other documents as references (for example, procedures may identify requirements).

Details

To avoid unnecessary record iterations, avoid cross-references where two records reference each other. Simplify the relationship by limiting which items can rely upon (reference) another. You can easily discover the cross-relationship by looking at the referenced item's Appears On tab.
