Ability to compare two MPM Process Plan structures

Ability to compare two MPM Process Plan structures

Being able to use the Windchill 10 compare tool (HTML UI like the Part to Part comparator or the CAD to Part comparator) , for comparing 2 Process Plan structures.

Formely the "PP to PP comparator".

To easily compare Structures,attributes and related objects of a PP, of 2 MPM Process Plan structures:

- 2 differents versions/configurations of the same Process Plan(ie sameProcess Plan Master)

- 2 differents Process Plan (ie different Process Plan Master)

related objects to compare (Docs , CADDocs, Ressources, Tooling, consumed and related WTpart) should be selectable as in Part to part comparator

With Filter configspec capabilities (like the part to part comparator) for comparing:

- LifeCycle state Filter

-Baseline

-promotion Request ...

-Effectivities

and other filters applicable to Process Plan

If MPMLink is to be adopted by users it must provided basic functionalities which can be found in ERP system,

This was a topic in a discussion not that long ago.

I fully support your idea Greg.

Also add the ability to compare Itérations in the Version History table of ProcessPlan and Operation, as any other iterable Windchill object

Always on top of things Greg.

Very good suggestion.

this one was easy to achieve by customization, has the compare history action Framework exists for Iterable objects ...

our developper was able to do that in 2 days by adding some entries in XML files ....

but should be OOTB ....

I could not agree more. We want OOTB functionality

Ideally, I want to do all my MPM in Windchill and simply push the released data into ERP for transaction activities.

Keep ERP for transactions and all collaborative and iterative work in Windchill. It does require a bi directional bridge with ERP but that would be so efficient.

Unfortunately, MPMLink capabilities (even version 11) are far to compete with best in breed ERP.....

You're right 🙂

not "should be" .... but "Have to be"
