Does anybody know about a new version (for 10.2) of the "Windchill PartsLink Classification and Reuse Administrator’s Guide"?

SOLVED

Does anybody know about a new version (for 10.2) of the "Windchill PartsLink Classification and Reuse Administrator’s Guide"?

The latest I found is for 10.1 M030! There are a lot of outdated chapters in it, they do not reflect the changes made.

When searching the reference documents for PartsLink (All Versions, All Types) for 10.2 only the "Windchill Content Overview" and "Read me First" docs are offered.

Am I missing something?

Best Regards,

  Thomas

I took a look, but I wasn't able to find a 10.2 version of the guide, either. Though, I did find article CS179576, which discusses the functionality changes in partslink 10.2.

Is there a particular question you have about PartsLink?  My company has a lot of experience with PartsLink, including implementation, bulk classification, configuration, etc.

A few months ago I gave a demo on PartsLink.  You can access it here.

Please let me know if you have any questions.  You can also respond to me at robert.sindelar@eccellent.com, if you like.

Hi Chris,

thanks for that link, but it doesn't really explain a lot. I hope PTC brings out a new document version, at least for 11.0

Thanks Bob, this was a very interesting demo for the user side of PartsLink!

What I'm missing is exactly the two points you mentioned on the last sheet:

- bulk creation of the classification tree

- bulk creation of classified parts

Do you have anything you are willing to share about that?

Re: Does anybody know about a new version (for 10.2) of the "Windchill PartsLink Classification and Reuse Administrator’s Guide"?

Those last two bullet points are not OOTB elements of Windchill as far as the "bulk" methods are concerned.  They are services that my company (Eccellent Solutions) can provide.  We have developed ways to create the classification tree and classify existing parts as necessary, in a method where it can be defined up front.

I'd be happy to provide a quote for you if you are interested.  Feel free to send me a direct e-mail with answers to the following questions:

  1. How large do you expect your "initial" classification schema to be, in terms of number of nodes?  (A ballpark number is acceptable here.  I would say a small structure is in the mid 100s of nodes, an "average" structure to be around 1,500 or so nodes, and a "large" structure being multiple thousands of nodes).
  2. How many WTParts in your Windchill do you feel would need bulk classification?  (Again, ballark number is fine).
  3. Do you already have an idea of what your classification schema will look like?  Or are you looking to build one from scratch (we can provide a workshop to assist with that too).

Looking forward to your response!

Hi Thomas -

We're no longer producing a PDF guide for PartsLink. However, all the content from the guide is available in the Windchill Help Center. To navigate there manually:

Additional PTC Windchill Capabilities > Windchill PartsLink—Classification Administration. Or, a link to the PTC.com page.
