We  are excited to be working closely with our PTC Gold Partner, Anark, on Supplier Collaboration.  Anark, whose Core software allows PTC customers to transform their engineering design, manufacturing, and maintenance information into advanced technical content and digital workflows, has posted a number of useful blogs on supply chain collaboration and cybersecurity.        In 'Supply Chain Collaboration: Top Five Strategies', Anark CEO Scott Williams challenges readers to stop doing the same things with supply chain collaboration and become more agile and responsive -  but how, with so many suppliers in the value chain?   To learn how, read 'Supply Chain Collaboration: Top Five Strategies'.

Prior to Windchill 11.0: Required using the same Windchill Workgroup Manager CPS on both the server and client machines.   Windchill 11.0 M010 Onwards: You can use different CPS levels on the Windchill server and client machines within the same maintenance release. Workgroup Manager will now check version compatibility at the Windchill maintenance version level; not at the CPS level. Windchill Workgroup Manager is no longer installed from the Windchill server. A company now has the flexibility to have their end users at desired CPS levels and still connect to a single Windchill server.   For example, the following scenario is supported. A company has Windchill 11.0 M010 CPS05 server and user ‘A’ can connect to the Windchill server with Windchill Workgroup Manager 11.0 M010 CPS03 and user ‘B’ can connect to the same server with Windchill Workgroup Manager 11.0 M010 CPS07.   Illustrated below is the supported configuration.
