Resequence Component Items

Resequence Component Items

Application Overview


When many changes are made to a product structure over a period of time, the sequence numbers of the component items can become disorganized or cluttered.  This will not effect production but could make it difficult to read or make additional changes to the structure.  The Resequence Component Items application allows the user to choose an increment and reassign component sequence numbers for selected parents based on that increment.  For example, if a parent's sequence numbers read 2, 3, 5, 15, 16, 25; the user could select an increment of ten and reset the sequence numbers to 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60.


The application offers the option of purging obsolete components from the product structures being resequenced.  It also allows the user to print a list detailing which components were resequenced along with their old and new sequence numbers.


Note:  Caution should be used when selecting an appropriate increment to eliminate a possible wrap around from sequence number 999 to 1 for the item number range being selected.


Run Instructions


      Select Resequence Component Items from the pull down BOMP Processing window.  The following screen will then be displayed:



Resequence Component Items Entry Screen



 The following options are available:


                  *     Select the desired mode from the Resequence Component Items menu bar.

                  *     Enter the data requested on the screen.


      To return to the menu bar, press the ESC or F10 key. To leave this application, press X for EXIT when positioned at the menu bar.


Entry Field Descriptions



Type and Description

1.      Starting Parent Item No

15 alphanumeric characters.


Enter the starting parent item number for the range of parents whose components are to be resequenced.  Defaults to All.

2.      Ending Parent Item No

15 alphanumeric characters.


Enter the ending parent item number for the range of parents whose components are to be resequenced.  Defaults to starting parent item.

3.      Increment

3 numeric digits.


Enter the increment for the resequenced components.  The first new sequence number will be the same as the increment then the program will skip that many digits between each following sequence number.  For example, if the increment was set at five, the new sequence numbers would read 5, 10, 15, 20, etc.  Defaults to 10.

4.      Purge Obsolete Components?

Y or N.


Enter Y to have all obsolete components purged from the range of product structures entered above.  Enter N to have them retained for future reference.  Defaults to N.

5.      Print Report Of


Y or N.


Enter Y to print a report of all changes made to sequence numbers.  Enter N to decline.  Defaults to Y.
