Can I follow the dollar rate with windchill?

Can I follow the dollar rate with windchill?

Hi,

When Turkish lira is entered in Windhill, I created an attribute that multiplies this value with this year's dollar rate.

However, the dollar rate is fixed at a different value each year. For example;

 

In 2021 I need to multiply this value by 11, in 2022 I need to multiply it by 17.64.

 

How do you think I can overcome this situation? yes, I may not be able to establish a dynamic structure, but do you think I should create a new attribute every year?

 

Note: attribute directly affects a form and its values ​​should not change. For this reason, it is impossible for me to regularly update the calculated attribute.

Hello Onur,

 

 in Windchill OOTB we have the currency exchange mechanism, it is done in file Windchill\codebase\wt\units\pureSymbol.properties  

there you can define the rate for currencies to dollar

Hi @Fadel 

That is true, but you need to change it each year, and there is no history, isn't it ?

@HelesicPetr   yes, the rate need to be changed each year, still better than creating an deleting attribute and make changes in a downstream ERP system

Hi @Fadel 

Once a customer asked for a dynamic setting by the time.

The point is that if you change the rate, then all history calculation is changed based on the new value. 

From the customer view it was not acceptable for project planning and budget overview.

 

it would be nice to keep the settings in the file like

2020.DOLLAR/LIRA = 17.5

2021.DOLLAR/LIRA = 17.9

2022.DOLLAR/LIRA = 17.1

I know idea could be created for that 😄

@HelesicPetr I got your point 😉

Cost is such a complex concept. We don't allow any cost data in our Windchill. It is only in our ERP program (SAP).
