Integrated material management between Windchill and CAD (Creo WorkGroupManager)

Integrated material management between Windchill and CAD (Creo WorkGroupManager)

Initially, we create or changes Creo Parametric material files (mtl) which is stored in Windchill PDMLink. Hence, we assign the material to a CAD model in the work group manager (WGM). Subsequently, creating a “material WT part” adding this WT part to the “mechanical WT part” in order to be able to add environmental attributes and subsequently be able to view above mentioned attributes in part structure tab. The entire process is cumbersome and require several steps that we’ll ask for refinement and improvement.

Yes, it is the same issue. We have had scripted Windchill to create a wtpart (a WT part sub-type) at EPM check-in, it also links the material part (aforementioned sub-type) to the OEM part automatically where it requires that designer has to assign material in there CAD-tool (Creo). This regards as a customization and I would rather have an out-of-the-box solution from PTC. I assume that this home-made script degrades system performance.
