A default node is a node that specifies a default route, a bill of materials (BOM), or a route. It is a node that you can add to the product model.

After you insert a default node that specifies either a BOM or a route, you can add new BOM lines to the BOM or new route operations to the route. You can do this by adding the new BOM nodes or route nodes under the default node. The complete BOM or route in the product model then consists of the BOM or route that you specified in the default node, plus any extra nodes that you added separately to the modeling tree.

Default routes work in a different way. The default route that you select functions as a template for route nodes that you subsequently add to the modeling tree. Therefore, specifying a default route does not in itself add a route to the product model. Instead, the default route has a supporting function for creating subsequent route nodes.

When you create a route node for a default route, the Route number field displays the route number of the default route. After create a route, you should select an operation. If the selected operation is a part of the default route, the next operation number of the default route is displayed automatically on the operation line. You can pick operations from all the operations that make up the default route. You can exclude specific operations, and you can add operations that are not part of the default route before the default route's first operation or after its last operation.

You cannot change the ordering of operations in the default route or insert new operations between the operations that make up the default route.
