Hello everyone, longtime PTC users here.
We're looking for any PTC CAD user who is using Agile PLM, and are wondering how you are managing your CAD files with that integration. Agile suggests a product called Engineering Collaboration (EC), and another solution from a company called Zero Wait State.
What have you learned, what are advantages or disadvantages?
We have customers using Windchill to manage CAD data and then we have an integrated them with the other systems. Agile will not do a very good job managing the complex relationships that exist in ProE/Creo. Agile (and other 3rd party players)has to use Pro/TOOLKIT to try and manage the data, but Pro/TOOLKIT does not offer all the data management calls so it is trying to manage the data with at least "one arm tied behind it's back". Run away if you can...we have been migrating customers off Teamcenter, Agile, PDMWorks, etc into Windchill because of the shortcomings of these PDM/PLM systems.
Agile EC is an interesting software, but how can they market this to PTC users if really nobody is even using this?
