To manage larger development projects, PDM functionality is needed within the project.
Revise within a project It shall be possible to revise a version controlled object within the project. The new revision shall be available in PDMLink first after PDM checkin. Its OK to only provide this feature in integral mode.
Create Project Baselines A project baseline shall capture the project data at a certain point in time, including product data. It shall be possible to compare different project baselines to identify what has been created/changed/removed
Manage changes within a project For large projects, changes need to be managed within the project with traceability. These changes need to be separated from product changes (in PDMLink). The change process might be dependent of the project model/template.
Sharing data between projects It shall be possible to share data between projects without check in the data to PDMLink. If a designer creates a concept, and like to create a variant of the concept, he should just copy to data to another project and make the changes in the new project. No data in PDMLink shall be affected until he select to do a check in to PDM.
