For Creo integrated with Windchill, one of the ultimate goals is to take parts lists off the drawing. There is some support to accomplish this passing find numbers over, but much of the setup is manual. This should be better integrated through some of the following functions. This can help support the path to MBD as well.
Automatic Find Numbers without drawing tables
3D BOM Balloons/callouts for MBD views
Improve integration of Find Number to Product Structure (it can be done, but can be better)
Better passing of material information to WIndchill
Ultimately product view with better usage of product structure, and linkages to models (integrated 3D model and design presentation in one pvz)
