Reaching High Satisfaction in a Large, Aggressive Creo 2.0 Deployment
Schneider Electric deployed Creo Parametric 2.0 to 1200+ users in 4 months, compared to eight months for Windchill 5. The foundation was based on a single PLM update, SCCM distribution for client installations, progress tracking, LMS for eLearning, in class eLearning coaching, learning connector and monitoring the progress of usage. After 1 month of pilot executions, a small set of improvements were rapidly set and distributed before mass deployment started, allowing Schneider Electric to achieve higher business unit satisfaction. The central administration tool helped in managing deployment progress. Attendees at this session learned how Schneider Electric central administration tool allows to configure and start multiple versions of Creo (wildfire 5 / Creo), using the correct license server and localized custom settings based in the location. The presenters discussed the quick selection of environments (development, pre-production, production and training) for Creo and Windchill, which also logs activity, crashes and failed updates to monitor the user experience.
