What’s it for:
Part assemblies are used to group parts together for filtering, grouping and reporting purposes.
If you use Part Assemblies, you may want to set the Global Settings - part name format to display drop down selection lists based on the assembly name.
You could also localize this subgrid to use for other grouping purposes. Refer to the section on Localization for details.
Assembly is an object that has a name and ID that parts can be assigned to, to indicate this is an assembly of those parts. A part assembly itself does not have a price as it is to group parts together for assemblies (i.e. parts of a bike) as opposed to Part Category which is to group similar parts (i.e. all bikes or all sporting equipment)
Use of Part Assemblies is optional in AyaNova.

•from the SubGrids menu bar
•from the jump button within the Part entry screen
