Auto create initial part revision

I have a request to automatically create a part revision when a new part is added to the system. The user wants to have a Rev 0 with description of “Initial Rev”. I played around briefly with a BPM to do this, but couldn’t figure out a way to call the creation of the PartRev record. Has anyone done this?

You can use the Invoke BO method widget in a method directive to call Part.GetNewPartRev. For the BO parameters on that widget, be sure to pass the RevisionNum as an empty string, since that is apparently the BaseRevisionNum.

Thank you, I will give this a try and report back.

Hi Mike,

Was wondering if you got anywhere with this as I’m trying to do the same thing
