Common Part Information
Common part information is the same for every version. It describes the form, fit, and function that the part performs in any assembly where it is used. The database object that stores common part information is sometimes referred to as the part master.
A part is uniquely identified by the Number attribute; no other part can have the same part number. The format of your part numbers is different from any other company. Windchill provides the ability to define your unique numbering scheme in your system.
For more information about defining object numbering schemes, see Object Numbering.
Other common part attributes include:
Default Trace Code
Default Unit
You can see the common part attributes in the Edit Common Attributes window.
