He have been using Creo Schematics for a couple years now. We are moving over to full blown
Winchill early next year for our PLM tool. Now our central catalog for Creo Schematic resides
on a server. A PTC rep asked about putting the Central Catalog under configuration management
in Windchill? Now to my knowledge the Central Catalog in not designed to be put in Windchill.
I'm 95 percent sure of this. Am I missing something?
I was told by people involved in the technical committee that it was kept out of Windchill because users told PTC that if it required Windchill, they wouldn't buy it.
I have also been told that they are looking at how to include the ability to store it in Windchill (I am assuming that the stand alone library will still be an option) and will have people testing it soon for inclusion in a future revision.
It is more a Schematics issue than a Windchill issue. Windchill can save a lot of stuff but Schematics needs to be able to go into Windchill a file at a time and get what it needs.
I know PTC is working on it because they have talked about the process of loading it (using a cache on your computer that gets updated in the background) at the Technical Committee meetings.
Personally, I really want this so that we have backup and rev control on all the files needed for the database. I am hoping that they can get it going in time for Schematics 5.0.
Does anybody get update on this topic ?
Still no way to sync the CC in Windchill ?
