looking for your ideas... introducing PTC IdeaSite
PTC/USER Members -
On behalf of PTC, I would like to invite you to participate in a new initiative aimed at improving PTC's product roadmap. This initiative is endorsed by PTC/USER and has already been piloted by the PTC/USER Technical Committees during the month of January. PTC is now ready to go live more broadly and is looking forward to harnessing the great ideas of the PTC software user social network.
Introducing PTC IdeaSite:
PTC's Product Management team is excited to announce the launch of IdeaSite. IdeaSite is a Web 2.0 platform for idea management that will enable PTC to gather better feedback about products and initiatives in a collaborative and targeted fashion. It is a new tool and process that allows the collective community to identify and promote the best ideas that PTC should consider for future products.
The first set of events will run from February 18, 2009 until March 13, 2009. There are four events and you are welcome to participate in as many of them as you would like. We hope you will actively participate. The events are as follows:
1. Product Cost Management
This new module will allow you to provide and track cost estimates for both individual parts and rolled-up costs during product development. Join this event to share your thoughts and ideas.
2. Mathcad - Pro/E Interoperability We want to improve how Mathcad and Pro/ENGINEER work together. Join this event to share your ideas, feedback and current struggles.
3. Windchill System Monitoring
We want to make it easier for you to monitor and troubleshoot the health of your Windchill system. Join this event to share your ideas and thoughts on how we can best do this.
4. Conceptual Engineering
We're building a new product that will unite the best of 2D and 3D CAD in one product, but we want your feedback on our plans first! Join this event to help us prioritize and refine our vision for our new Conceptual Engineering product.
The information and ideas gathered will help us better target our efforts and will be incorporated into software actively being developed. IdeaSite is a collaborative tool, so don't worry if you don't have any ideas. We'd still appreciate you going into the event to help build on other people's ideas with your comments and star-ratings.
