I am searching for documentation, user experiences, best practices etc.. about importing product structure in PDMLink.
We have the product structure from our ERP system and we can export them into an excel spreadsheet.
Our intention is to upload this structure into PDMLink and create the WTpart. The CAD documents will be created and associated at a later stage.
If any of you have recommendations, links to documentation etc.. this would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in anticipation.
There are 2 ways to do it:
1. use webjects.
2. use windchill's loader (look for wt.part.LoadPart in Windchill API JavaDoc)
3. write your own servlet and methods to create everything you need. (also need to read Windchill API JavaDoc)
I always write my own loaders because it's really flexible way to load everything you need to Windchill.
