Is anybody using Agile (Eigner) products in conjunction with Windchill?
Five or six years ago our company discontinued using Intralink and replaced it with Eigner, now called Agile.The Agile PLM does a fine job of storing and organizing PDF files but it isn’t so good at handling pro-e data.We’ve had to install various connectors and work arounds to allow Agile and Pro-e to interface.Agile doesn’t work with 64-bit or Wildfire 4.0 so we’re forced to run Wildfire 2.0 on 32-bit machines.
Our pro users, including myself, have been begging to get Intralink or Windchill back in-house.After a long campaign to convince upper management that we need Intralink to manage our pro-e data they have agreed to bring it back.The problem is Agile is tied to our Oracle system and they aren’t going to get rid of that.They still want to store drawing files, BOM’s and other digital information in Agile.So now I’m on a mission to see if I can link Windchill to Agile for things like BOM’s, drawing tiff files and iges files.
My question to the Prousers community is this…
Is anybody using Agile in conjunction with Windchill?
If so, do you need any special interfacing software?
Have you been able to automate your BOM procedure between Windchill and Agile?
Anybody that has experience with Agile, Windchill and Pro-e and would be willing to discuss their experiences will be greatly appreciated.
Sam, we are looking to add the Agile Engineering package to our current set up, and your statements about Pro/E 64 bit being incompatible forced me to double check with Agile. I have included the majority of the conversation here. According to John, Pro/E 64-bit is no longer an issue.
P.S. I left out the e-mail addresses, phone numbers & last names of those who assisted me, so if someone wants to find out more they need to research it through their own contacts.
