Currently one can create a nice set of annotations with Creo Parametric 2.0 which can be published to Creo View. This functionality can be used to create 3D drawings which streamline design process and simplify data management. Data distribution (deliverables and application) can be arranged via Windchill till shop floor level.
When one creates annotation sets for sheet metal structure, there is a need for formed and flat states (bend and unbend) of geometry with supporting annotations for manufacturing. This can be done either via simplified representations or Family Tables. Later one is not an solution since it really does not simplify data management in PDM.
Therefore a support for part level simplified reps in Creo View is needed.
