The most common errors and warnings

  • File (or item definition) is missing
  • Component is used in the SpeedPak configuration
  • Outdated cached quantity value for the non-modeled items
  • Ambiguity in the items grouping. For example when custom grouping or row identity is specified it is possible that values in the column result in the different values and cannot be grouped (e.g. if Configuration identity is not used and the different configuration specific properties are found)

Exporting BOM tables

BOM data can be exported into various formats:

  • XML
  • Excel
  • JSON
