Need a Windchill Data Object that is not defined by having a document or cad object.

Need a Windchill Data Object that is not defined by having a document or cad object.

I would like to see a pure data object created in Windchill PDMLink for creating information that is not derived from creating a WTDocument or an EPMDocument. So that data can be created in the same way that one would within any other database application through the use of a input form, attributes to create a data record. This data object type should have the ability to be sub-typed and also linked to other objects (WTDocument, EPMDocument, etc..).

 

Engineering creates and captures a lot of data that is recorded on spreadsheets that would be more useful downstream if in a database, however in most cases when this happens it is usually create in a standalone database separated from Windchill and becomes another island of information that eventually gets disconnected from the downstream process. Adding the ability to create this data in Windchill would be very useful to the overall engineering and manufacturing process.

Why the WTDocument subtype is not enough for you?
