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