I have been asked to look into some overlapping solutions from PTC and Oracle. I would first like some input from users that have used Creo with Agile and Windchill. How well does Agile compair to Windchill.
I haven't used Agile in 4 years so I might me out of date but Agile did not work as a database for ProE such as controlling revisions and lidecycle. I believe you needed Windchill with WT Parts and ERP connector to create and maintain BOM items and track changes in order to export a compatible file to import into PLM systems like Agile or Omnify or business systems like Oracle or SAP. Since Windchill is a PLM system I guess it would come down to what PLM system is already in place for change management and does the company want to pursue a different system.
Windchill (at least 9.1) out of the box does not have the nice red line updates and printable change notices that you get with Agile or Omnify. It's more paperless and everything on line. Makes you do a lot of BOM compares if you need to track changes between revs but this can be done with some customized reports.
Maybe things have been updated on the Oracle (Agile) end but ask a lot of questions.
In Reply to Michael Locascio:
Windchill is much more of a database for Pro/E and Creo than Age is. Agile looks and works in a similar way, but it lacks the "workspace mentality."
Just curious, anyone out there using Vault Pro for Creo 2 files ? Would be interested in hearing about anyones experience with Vault Pro and Proe/Creo2 files.
