Query before 3 year ProE maintenance renewal

Hi folks,
I have been having discussions with LEAP (who are our Value Added Reseller
for ProE) about the renewal of our three year contract which comes due at
the end of June.

Below is a simplified list from them on what we have.

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.
