Completed activities cannot be modified. While I understand the basic concept, as an administrator it would be beneficial to be able to edit project activities that are completed. Typically this would happen if someone didn't put any hours against a task, or the dates are wrong.
A list of plan activities should be able to be updated. Even if the individual activites are not deleted there should be a way to remove them from the plan, or the activies should be able to be cancelled if they are no longer needed.
Additionally there is no way to reorder the plan if a task gets changed in the hierarchy or assgned to a different grouping. It would be nice if this were drag and drop but I won't hold my breath. Changing the original estimated start and stop dates are typically locked out once something is active and there is no way to assign resources while an activity is active.
The way the plan appears to be set up, it is designed to be created and run through, never really modified. Not all of our projects go through a normal process and things happen to cause a change in plan. Overall there needs to be more flexibility.
Is this in refrerence to Classic Plans or Enhanced Plans (EPP)? Also, which version of Windchill are you using?
The new EPP Plans in Windchill 10.2 seem to address this issue, but it also depends on whether or not you are using Resource Assignments associated with the Plan Activity or just an Activity Owner.
We're on 10.2 M010 and should be using EPP. We do have some older ones that were migrated as classic.
I would strongly suggest getting a 10.1 M040/M050 test system installed and running which both contain all the latest updates to EPP.
Is these updates are implemented in 10.2 M30 ?
We are planning on doing an upgrade.
This issue is one of the many complaints from the PM team, not being able to edit a "Completed" or "Cancelled" Plan Activity or Plan when in Auto Execute Mode
