The Revision Management ensures the consistency of drawing changes throughout Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. A usage check provides information about where a particular drawing is used. Based on this information, you can decide, for example, whether an entire product structure needs to be revised, or only an individual part or an individual assembly. It is therefore not a direct module that has an impact, but rather a form of control mechanism. This takes effect during change management.
Inherit Drawings in Documents
When creating a document, the drawing set of the previous document or the valid drawings of the item are always inherited. Changing the drawing set in a document will pass it on to the next document. It is only important that the drawing set has a status that allows it to be passed on to the new document.
The following figure illustrates the inheritance process.
The item is assigned the mechanical drawing PDM-1000 in revision A. This is the set of drawings with the internal number 100. This is the drawing set with the internal number 100. This set number is passed on to the sales quote when the quotation is created and from there to the sales order. In the sales order, the assembly drawing PDM-1000, revision B is assigned. The new combination of both drawings corresponds to drawing set number 120, which is now inherited in all subsequent documents.
Copy from Archived Documents
The situation is different when copying documents from archives: If a document is restored from the archives, not the drawings that were assigned to the document at that time are copied, but always the drawing set that is currently valid.
