Track Manu Part Attachment changes

Any suggestions on tracking the Attributes on Manu Part  and also have the tracking of the Attachments similar to Part having  ECO concept of tracking red line of the attributes and having the attachment versions.


We see users are able to Modify the details on the Manu Part like description and remove the attachments and add latest documents on Manu parts even after releasing the ECO for the Part

Agile is not designed to manage MFG Part in the same way as ITEMS. Some ideas include limiting MODIFY privileges. Using a REQUEST object for users who do not have MODIFY to request any updates. And making process changes to require the ITEM to be rev’d in the event of a ‘critical’ update to the MFG Part.
Hope these ideas help.

Thank you for the response Patrick. I was wondering if there is any way to achieve this with OOTB features. Yeah I was thinking of restricting with Modify privilege for only a few people.

When you say the request object are you referring to Change Request ? ( again I see this as a nice way of tracking the changes).

It’s not as slam dunk as you might want.  The Change Request would NOT be related to the MFG PN rather you can use it to reference the MFG PN and then the ATTACHMENT would be manual post approval.  Also you’d wanna make the process easy.


Of course this is all in my mind… you place the physical attachment on the CR and run it through.  This is of course if the MFG PN does not change so these changes are typically NOT form, fit or function affecting.  Hope this helps.
