Smart purchased component assignment - May 12th, 2022

What's new in v24.2.0

v24.2.0 features the official release of the "smart" purchased component assignment workflow. This set of features have been in beta for some time.
The "smart" purchased component assignment workflow equips you with intelligent OEM part number matching to your purchased component library, historical geometric matches, and even matches geometry to all standard PEM fastener catalog models. This feature set is designed to make it easier for users to assign purchased components from CAD model breakouts. The video below will walk through the functionality.
This feature will become more useful the more you use the platform. We will recommend matches from your purchased component library based on geometries that have previously been associated with a purchased component. This means that even if a customer uses a custom part number for a piece of hardware, as long as the component came from a CAD model, the next time we see that CAD file, we will recommend it be linked to the purchased component based on historical geometric matching.
Additionally, this update is designed to interface with our release of PEMConnect in our partviewer. By associating purchased components to specific PEM fasteners, we can provide real time pricing and availability on these components from within the application. Check out this video for more information on how it works.

Notes for beta users

Previously for those customers with access to the beta, when converting a component to a purchased component, there were two ways of doing it: 
  • "Convert to purchased component" / "Change purchase component"
  • "Convert to purchased component v2" / "Change purchase component v2"

Now there is a single unified way to assign purchased components that all users have access to. Specifically:
  • The "Convert to purchased component" / "Change purchased component" workflow has been updated to use the new "smart" assignment feature set
  • The "V2" out of the name of the second option and now has become the only way to update purchased components
There are no functional changes with this release. Users will still be able to perform the same actions, just with a better, more consistent UI.
