The Windchill "Search" and ideally also the "Classification Search" should be accessible from the Creo "Open" dialogue.
Otherwise the user has to perform several additional steps like "Search", "Add to workspace", "Insert into Creo Assembly"
Maybe at least the "Search..." filed can be connected to the global search:
So it is possible to assemble models directly from commonspace
Especially the usage of the "Classification Search" is very complicate / unusable for a CAD-User.
My company develops pumps and we have many of them. NUMBER=unique, NAME=Pump => many
PartsLink can manage the classification very properly - so a search may look like:
If I am in the "Assemble"-Mode in Creo it is very hard to get the CAD-File:
- Leave "Assemble"-Mode
- Enter "Classification Search" => Result = WTPart
- Related Objects =>CAD-Documents
- Details-Page of CAD-Document
- Add to WS
- Enter "Assemble"-Mode in Creo
- Find object in WS
