Customer Leader:  Matt Burr (Screen Name: mburr )

 

The goal of this working group is to identify what certifications, protocols, documentation, policies, and/or functionality can help organizations feel comfortable and confident in the security of their proprietary information in order to take advantage of the value found in AR Design Share.

 

 Group members must be willing to actively participate with the group as follows:

  • Members will share concerns around security of AR Design Share.
  • Brainstorm ways to mitigate those concerns.
  • Work with PTC to construct requirements and timelines.

 If you are interested in participating please contact the group leader for admittance.

In that context, we would like participants to

  1. Review and comment on posted approaches
  2. Share their practices around hole feature usage, hole table customizations and hole note callout usage in order to ensure the enhancements take existing practices into account.

 

The working group ends with Creo 8.0 delivery

Creo Family Tables and the Model-Based Enterprise

Status:  Inactive/Closed to New Members

Customer Working Group Leader: Ryan Gelotte (Screen Name:  RyanAE )

Description and Objective – Identify all of the challenges that come with Family Tables when trying to implement the Model-Based Enterprise versus documenting Families on a 2D drawing.  Theses challenges include but are not limited to documenting Families using MBD practices which are significantly different than using a single tabulated drawing, managing changes to each part, how to handle derivatives of the Family Table models, etc.

Deliverable – White paper, Creo roadmap

Duration – 6 months - 1 year, start asap

Working Group intended participant profile, max size – Participants would have a good understanding of current company processes for using Family and how their company manages them in Windchill today.
