Topic:   Tracking asssembly changes

Is there a way to track when changes are made to an assembly? I know I could use database back ups to individually check but need to know what changes were made when. As we back up daily, this would take forever! Thanks.

Each Assembly is stored as a Part Number/Revision combination. For example, p/n 12345 Rev A has a different BOM than 12345 Rev B. I don't see a way to automatically compare BOMs, or to keep track of when a BOM changes.

One could use the Comments field to track changes for each Assembly, such as "REV B: Added 3 widgets", but it would be a manual process.

Thanks. That's what I thought. Just wondered if anyone had an easier way of looking back through past edits.

I have, lets say, a product p/n 12345.
I decide to make a small change and release that as Rev-B

I open 12345 in the editor, make the small changes and save that with the same p/n but as Rev-B

Now both Rev-A and Rev-B exist in my database and I can look at either of them at any time.

What Ken said about comparing. It's not built in to MiniMRP but you can simply open another session of MiniMRP (double click the desktop icon again to start another instance of the program.

In one instance I open Rev-A in the editor and in the other instance I open Rev-B. Easy then to drag the windows side by side so I can see them both side by side.

But as Ken said. Also make a note in the comments box of each product saying when it was phased out/released and also what the major differences were.
