Make a new part

Any user who is given a role with appropriate permissions can make a new part record and its first iteration.

There are two options for creating a new part record.

  • On the Item Explorer's New tab, scroll through the list of available part types. Click on the appropriate row to create a new part record of the specified type.

  • From the Item menu, select the Create Part line. (Or, press your keyboard's F10 key.) A wizard will open, and walk you through the steps necessary to create the basic attributes for your new part record. Although the home organization is the default, you can choose a partner organization.

    The content of a home part is controlled by your organization: you specify the part number, the item description, the technical specifications, when it's released and when it's revised. A partner part is where these elements are designed and controlled by a different organization, and your organization simply references that part for your own purposes.

    If you begin typing an organization's name into the control, the list is filtered.
