Creo Parametric, COACH and Windchill eLearning Perpetual Library****
What this means:
- Lines 1&2 give us 12 ProE (now Creo) full licences with Windchill Heavy User. These are the licences we all usually use. - Line 3 gives us one Foundation ProE licence (which Sapna usually uses). This licence allows most stuff but is more limited in surfacing and in Top Down design information generation though it can read both aspects. - Line 4 gives us Mechanica Structural and Thermal simulation. I use the Structure (not sure who else does) but the Thermal is not a lot of practical use as it has no CFD aspect. (FYI We also have ANSYS so that is useful for more complex simulation of structural and/or thermal problems). - Line 5 shows a Tool Design module which, to the best of my knowledge, we have not used since Greg's time. - Line 6 shows Five eLearning licences we have for ProE (Creo) but which also apply for Windchill. I think we have not been using, or at least have been seriously under-using, these licences. These give us access to the PTC training that we get if we have an instructor lead course. Obviously of benefit to people less familiar with ProE but also to experienced users who have not used some aspect for some time. Also lets us look at Windchill training for if and when we go down that track. We need to get some "names" for these licences as unfortunately they are not floating.
My proposal, to which Leon agrees, is to drop the Tool Design module and to keep the rest as is. Beyond this we can, and I argue should, make better use of some of these licences. To that end I am looking to get LEAP to sort some aspects out for us and to do a presentation to TAIT (probably in the first half of July) on some of the things we have but are not using.
Does anybody have any reservations on these proposals? If so speak now.
Note that this does not cover possible new modules (to TAIT) from PTC; the idea is to handle anything like that as a separate discussion with LEAP. Such possible things are Creo Direct (was CoCreate) and the ECX module for MCAD<>ECAD interchange.
