Prevent loss of DATA. There is a GAP between CAD tool and the WGM

Prevent loss of DATA. There is a GAP between CAD tool and the WGM

USE CASE:


- Create a CAD part in your CAD Tool

- Check-in

- Check-out, perform modification 1 and save the changes in in your CAD Tool

- Go to Workspace and verify "+" icon.

- Go again to your CAD Tool, perform modification 2 and DON'T save the changes in in your CAD Tool

- Go to Workspace and verify "+" icon. (This "+" icon is related to the modification 1)

- Now, at the workspace, check-in the CAD model

- Expected result : All modifications 1 and 2 are checked in at Common space

- Actual result: Only modification 1 is checked in


IDEA:


- Check-in action at Workspace should involve a SAVING action at CAD tool at the same time , otherwise, not saved modifications at CAD tool will be lost.

Juan,

I think this can be a feasible approach for new users to prevent any mistakes but also keep in mid that sometimes you do not want to keep the changes by intent. Like you have worked and achieved a good status of your work and do a save. Then you start to investigate or try something out and at the end you decide to revert your change. You can close your CAD Tool first, reopen it from disk or at least remove it intentionally from memory (not sure if NX can do) and do the check in otherwise you would have saved the unintended change.

Overall it is a 50/50 chance to make something wrong and it is just getting used to it.

And in the future keep in mind to created these as Create a product idea and not as Document
