Migrating from Foundation 5.1 to PDMLink 8.0 - SoftTypes or Model<br /> ed Attributes/Objects

Hello All,

We are working on a project to migrate Windchill foundation 5.1 to PDMLink
8.0. (also bringing both CAD and Windchill under one umbrella).

Our existing Windchill 5.1 has custom modeled change objects (extension of
WTChangeActivity2, WTChangeRequest2 etc.). We also have heavy customizations
( GUIs / functionalities ) developed around those change objects.

Now PDMLink 8.0 offers option to soft type those previously modeled change
objects and their attributes. If we stick to existing design, code
migration will be greatly simplified and we would like to keep it that way.
But I would also like to understand , in the long run, if one design is any
better compared to the other (soft type vs. modeled).

If any of you have any experience with this topic and share your thoughts I
would greatly appreciate it.


Thank you,

Rahul Kharkar
