Viewing Part structure (As Stored / As Approved)

Viewing Part structure (As Stored / As Approved)

Part- Part have WTPartusage link. (the changes/new versions of the sub part floats into the Part structure).

 

As a normal user, it is very difficult to understand what was changed from the last view/update of the structure in simple way.

 

There are different configuration filter exists . but they seems be quite advanced for a basic end user.  Could we think of a simple default filters which would help user to easily access and understand what was changes (recently) in the part structure . And the filters could be configured at the preference level (so that end user doesnt have to configure this for each part structure level).

There already exist two methodologies to support capabilities for better understanding historical configurations

 

By default historical configurations resolve with the As-Matured Config spec.  This config will give the user the what was the most mature revision that meets the State criteria based upon when the parent node went to its appropriate release state.  This gives the user a view of the structure as to what was the most mature version at that time.

 

In addition - with Windchill 12.0.1 we introduced a new Change Configuration Specification. This allows one to pick one to many Change notices where the Versions of the BOM will be resolved based upon the version of the Resulting data in those Change Notices.  This allows the user to see the structure based upon those Changes in an easy fashion.

 

Another option is that you can populate a Baseline when a Change Notice is released.  This allows one to many Change Notices to populate the baseline that can then be used to resolve a BOM structure giving you another mechanism where a static Baseline is needed in place of selecting one to many Changes (as with the Change Config spec)
