Export nomenclatures (BOMS)
Publication can be either automatic at a "Create" or "Promote" event on an object of type "Part", or manual.
The manual BOM export is available from the context menu, right-click and "Export BOM", of a Part object.
The result of this export is an XML file with all the links and attributes (parameterized in the configuration file) of the nomenclature.
The format of the export XML file may be customizable using XSLT technology.
All documents (neutral files..) associated with the nomenclature are also extracted in a sub-folder.
It is possible for a third-party system to acknowledge receipt of this publication, and to value certain attributes (e.g. a ERP item code). This acknowledgement of receipt materializes as an XML file.
