DMSMS or Obsolescence Management

DMSMS or Obsolescence Management

I am looking for anyone who has implemented some process to manage diminishing manufacturing sources and material shortages (DMSMS) or obsolescence.  I saw a few older posts on the subject, but the ones that looked interesting were a) old, and b) not responded to.

 

I am looking at trying to better support our current process by bringing some if not all of the information and processes into Windchill.

 

Anyone managing DMSMS or obsolescence in Winddhill?.

Re: DMSMS or Obsolescence Management

Obsolescence, yes - with Lifecycle State, Transition in Change Task and Supercedes/Superceded By linkage... all out of the box.

Re: DMSMS or Obsolescence Management

Is the supercedes/superceded by linkage part of Supplier Management?  I do not see that relationship type available to me on my 10.1 system.

Re: DMSMS or Obsolescence Management

OOTB at 10.2... may be the M020 build, but does not require Supplier Management.  This was one of the compelling reasons to upgrade for us. 

Re: DMSMS or Obsolescence Management

We have a 10.2 M030 test environment for our upcoming upgrade, but I cannot get to the supersedes table.  I found it in the help, but our IT group must have hid / restricted it for us.

Now I know what to ask for.  Thanks!

Re: DMSMS or Obsolescence Management

It's only applicable for WTParts... not available for CAD Documents or WTDocuments (that I know of).

Add a custom Tab and add the Supersedes Group... it's not displayed OOTB and is available for User Configurable display

Re: DMSMS or Obsolescence Management

That was where I went looking originally.  It is just not there for us.  I am not in IT, do not have any access to the OS on the servers, nor have site admin or full org admin access in WIndchill.  I trust the supersede capability is there, so now comes time to ask for it and see what happens.
