Creo Working Group Topics

CAD Symbols (2D and/or 3D Environment)

Status:  Active/Open (Currently looking for Volunteers)

If you would like to join the group, please contact the group administrator Joel Nelson (Screen Name:  jnelson)

 

The intent of this Working Group would be to identify, prioritize, and present to PTC common symbols issues  users have with the Symbol Functionality (including creation,maintenance, and placement), along with suggestions on how the functionality could be improved to make Symbols a more efficient tool. 

 

Deliverable:  Whitepaper

 

This Working Group will be composed of a cross-section of Creo users from the PTC/USER Creo CAD, Model-Based Enterprise, and Detail Technical Committees, along with other Creo experts. 

 

Size:  The maximum size is 20 individuals.

 

Creo Manufacturing

 Status:  Active/Open:  Currently looking for volunteers

Customer Working Group Leader:  Komej Nickel (Screen Name:  knickel 

PTC Product Management Contacts: Beat Fretz (Screen Name:  bretz) and Jose Coronado (Screen Name:  JoseCoronado)  

 

The purpose of this group will be to discuss challenges and areas for improvement as it relates to Creo NC.

Topics for discussion will include customer use cases and needs to enhance Creo NC.

 

This Working group will include the following activities:

  • Bring use cases, ideas and requirements to enhance Creo NC.
  • Demonstrate customer use cases.
  • Provide early product feedback to PTC.

 

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

  • Share their working practices and experiences
  • Define and capture use cases and requirements, along with expressing its business value
  • Evaluate and provide feedback on potential solution ideas

 This focus group is to collaborate with PTC on the development of Creo NC.

During the discussion, PTC will work with the group to discuss use cases, define requirements and review specifications.

The group will provide feedback during implementation and verify that the targeted use cases have been addressed. The group will also detail out gaps that still exist.

 

Number of Participants:  TBD

Timeline: 24 Months

 

Creo Family Tables and the Model-Based Enterprise

Status:  Active/Open:  Currently looking for volunteers.

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. Participants would also need to understand how the Family Table instances are related to the “Parts” that they define and how changes to both the Part and the Family Tables are managed.

Group Size 12 maximum

 

Creo Multi Body Working Group

  Status: Active/Open:  Currently looking for volunteers.

Focus Group for Multi-Body Use Cases in Creo

Working Group Leader: Martin Neumueller, PTC  (Screen Name:  mneumueller)

 

This focus group is to collaborate with PTC on the development of selected key “multi-body” projects during the Creo 6.0/7.0 development cycles.  During the discussion, PTC will work with the group to discuss use cases, define requirements, review specification and implementation.

Focus areas relate to the use cases such as:

  • Multi-body usage for Additive Manufacturing
  • Multi-body part design and design in context methodologies
  • Embedded component use cases, for example
    • Sheet metal, regular or molded parts with inserted HW (PEMs, weld nuts, rivet nuts, etc)  
    • Welded assemblies
    • Inseparable Assemblies (purchased components)  
  • Multi-body for design collaboration

Participants should be experienced Creo Parametric users that are currently dealing with work arounds for these use cases. Participants should also be willing to provide example models and additional documentation to illustrate their use cases and requirements.

The group will provide feedback during implementation and verify that the targeted use cases have been addressed. The group will also detail out gaps that still exist.

 

 Deliverables:

Use cases as well as white papers that can be leveraged to improve the capability in the software focused on multi body design.  The group will produce a whitepaper with use case descriptions and related requirements, provide example models, provide feedback during implementation and verify that the targeted use cases have been addressed and detail out gaps that still exist.

 

Working Group Duration: 24 months

Working Group Max Size: 25

 

Creo Solid Welds

 Status: Active/Open Looking for volunteers.

Customer Working Group Leader: Joseph Hockett  (Screen Name: JosephP)

The team will work with the PTC PM to continue improvements to the solid weld capability.

Participates should be existing Creo Parametric 3.0 users that are interested in created solid welds in their models.

Sheet Metal experience would be a plus.  In addition, members must have installed and run Creo 4.0, and have used the solid weld functionality.

Deliverables: Use cases as well as white papers that can be leveraged to improve the capability in the software.  Some material was already generated by the TCs.  The Working Group will produce a whitepaper and use cases, verifying that all use cases have been addressed and detailing any gaps that still exist.

Working Group Duration: 12 months

Working Group Max Size: 20
