1. Describe your environment: What is your industry? What is your role in your organization? Describe your stakeholders. Implementation of Visualization Solutions at different Customers.
2. What version of Windchill are you currently running? 126.96.36.199
3. Describe the problem you are trying to solve. Please include detailed documentation such as screenshots, images or video. see also CS44087.
Currently there is no support for different Publisher Queue Sets for different CAD Authoring Applications,
Therefore different CAD Workers cannot run in parallel which increases the the time to convert data.
Long conversion times reduce the acceptance by the customer, who wants to see the result as quick as possible. Since there may be following applications that will use these data. e.g. SAP will use drawings.
4. What is the use case for your organization? More and more customers do not only use Windchill PDMLink to manage there creo parametric data, but also use it as a multi cad data management tool, as to what it is designed. Therefore the multi cad visualization must be enhanced.
Additionally more and more consumers migrate there 3'rd party cad data to windchill and want to publish there legacy data after a migration in an acceptable time frame. But if they have multi cad data in there environment it is not possible to publish the data of different cad systems in parallel.
5. What business value would your suggestion represent for your organization?
The intention is reduce the implementation effort to the customers and to reduce Windchill complexity.
Also increase the throughput of cad conversions to reduce the time until the visualization is available.
6. Suggested solution Implement different OOTB Queuesets for different CAD Applications. Additionally it would be helpful to not only define the Queueset bay Type but also by Subtypes or even. additional criteria's like drawing, assembly, parts (not WTPart). It would also be grate if one could send large (e.g. Assemblies/Drawings with may dependencies) jobs (long conversion time) to separate workers so they do not thwart small jobs.
