How to Supersede a Part


DealerTeam makes Part Management and Supersession easy. Changes to the Parts Master will apply globally and extend to multiple locations.


Part Supersession is an important function that can be used to:

  1. Update Part A to a manufacturer's issued Part A-a, where the part is essentially the same but the part number has changed. 
  2. Make Part A obsolete to be replaced by Part B, when both parts perform the exact same function.
