Benefits and Description

When the Update PCB function recreates the BOARD_PART from profiles, it now inherits the SYS-ID of the existing one. When storing the PCB assembly to Creo Elements/Direct Model Manager, this avoids the creation of new masterdata and instead  ensures a regular revision stream of the board part.
