Benefits and Description

NX users are now able to Modify/Add/Revise/Delete NX part family instances without checking out the entire family table.

For family tables containing a large number of instances, this enables more efficient management of those family tables by allowing the part family instances to be treated as independent business objects, and also allows the creation of instances as they are used, rather than forcing creation of all instances.
