Transfer Windchill structure usage attributes to Creo View

Transfer Windchill structure usage attributes to Creo View

Today only Windchill Item Attributes are transferred when a Windchill object is opened in Creo View.

Suggest to also transfer Windchill structures Usage Attributes when a Windchill structure is opened in Creo View.

The position that is on occurrence is transferred to Creo View so it should be manageable from a technical point of view.

Can you elaborate on the use-case a bit, and also clarify if you are expecting this on the static published representation in addition to the structure based one opened from the Part Structure Browser?  Today you do get a subset of the usage  information when opening the structure from the Part Structure Browser but only the usage link ID, Quantity, UOM and only the occurrencelink ID.

For e.g. hoses, consoles, fasteners that are used several times in a product but for different functions.

Business usage attributes give information to users if a console with fasteners are in fuel system or in water system as an example.

Part information itself is not enough for those situations.



When you build a static representation you anyway traverse the structure so why not take usage attributes as well.

Opening dynamic structure of course usage attributes should come along.



A suggestion is to pick those that are visible in user selected view in structure tab.
