Shipping and Receiving Hierarchical Assets
When you ship or receive a hierarchical asset, changes occur in certain fields of the asset's parent component according to the type of shipping or receiving transaction that occurs. Whether these effects occur on the fields of the hierarchical asset's child sub-components depends on whether the fields are set to cascade their values from the parent to the child. For more information about hierarchical assets, see Hierarchical Assets.
