Clicking "Search" in the bottom right corner of this tab shows all of the part's parents and any processes in which the part has been consumed. The list shows each of the higher-level items the component goes into (where it is used).
Note: You can double click on any of the items or processes shown in the Where Used search to open them.
BOM Search Results
When you are interested in parents of the selected item, make the appropriate setting before clicking the 'Search' button to ensure the results display the information you are looking for:
Select BOM Types: Select either EBOM or MBOM, depending on which type of BOM you wish to use to search for the selected item.
Show Latest Revisions only: Checking this box will only show the latest revision of the parent parts.
Perform Multi-level Where Used: If this box is checked, instead of returning only the immediate parent of the selected item, the where used will be performed on the parent's items, too, depending on the number set in the 'Select Max Levels' drop down menu. If 2 levels are selected, the results should show the immediate parent of the selected item, and the immediate parent of the parent. If a greater number of levels are selected, the search will continue until the max level defined is reached, or until the search reaches the top level of the BOM structure.
