Automatic Assignment of Interference to last person who modified one of the two interfering parts

Automatic Assignment of Interference to last person who modified one of the two interfering parts

I'm currently performing the bot type function of assigning interferences to the person who last modified the more recently modified of the 2 interfering reports.   This would be a great value add for the Windchill interference tool to perform automatically.

Interferences can result from several causes. In some cases the interference can only be solved by modifying the parent assembly. E.g. Bolt is misplaced.

Before assigning, i would suggest you use Creo View to review the interference.

Usecase to identify editor of common parent:

  1. Change structure tree by adding the username of the last modifier
    [File > Options > General > Navigation > Configure Alternate Part Names]
    “<part name>  (PTC_WM_MODIFIED_BY)”
  2. Filter structure tree to only show visible parts
    [Filter > Enable “Only visible Parts”] (add siblings if required)
  3. Within the interference report choose “Display Selected Pairs”
  4. Select Pair

--> Identify first common parent with username in structure tree
