Define related parts

You can define parts to be related to other parts, either as accessories or equivalents to be used as substitutes. This may be done from the folders Eqv, Cuspart, Accessories and Support.

  • Equivalent articles are parts that in some respects are equivalent to the article which is currently displayed. This is useful in situations such as part change during a production run where you need to fin an equivalent to the part to be changed.

  • Accessory articles are articles that may be used as supplementary components or equipment to the Article (ART) which is currently displayed. They are marked as this to enable fast identification and prints of accessory lists from kit structures. The accessory function is mainly a source of information. The main use of the accessory function is for use in web-based commerce.
