R2021x FD02 introduced a new capability in the “Engineering Release” widget that enables release engineers to describe how the organization intends to acquire the Engineering item.
One can either “buy” or “make” the Engineering item in-house.
The release engineer decides upon creation of this relationship, what is the intent of the Manufacturing item (Make or Buy):
- If “Make,” then the Manufacturing item will be created as “Manufacturing Assembly”
- If “Buy,” then the Manufacturing item will be as “Provided Part”
A new tab, “Manufacturing Intent,” available from the Engineering item, displays these relationships between Engineering and Manufacturing items.
