ProjectLink 9.0 resources question

Can you tell me if ProjectLink 9.0 has the ability to track resources
for a person across projects? For example, John is on project XYZ at
60% and on project 123 at 50%. Would there be a way to run a report
that says that John is over utilized? I don't see this OOTB but I'm
wondering if it couldn't be queried via Cognos or the Query Builder?
Thoughts?

ProjectLink Question

I have a question and I hope that someone can shed some light on what is going on.

I have a ProjectLink project started and have been using it for about a year. At one point during the last year I checked out a couple of parts to the project and we made some changes to the parts and checked them back into the PDMLink Commonspace. Now the other day I needed to share those same parts to the project, but it will not allow me to share the parts because it says that they are already in the project.

It looks like the project is remembering those parts I added and removed earlier in the year. Is this how project is supposed to work? And is there a way to clear it out?

Thanks
Rich

ProjectLink Question

I think this section of the User's Guide might be what you are looking
for.

I never found this functionality to be helpful since I would have hoped
that changes in PDMLink more readily, and automatically update to the
project, but I can see where others might want this kind of separation of
data from the internal PDMLink version to the shared ProjectLink version.

PDMLink 9.1 User's Manual, pages 115-116

Updating a Project
When an object is shared from PDM to a project, the iteration defined
during the Add to
Project action is added to a project baseline. A user is able to share a
set of objects using a
specific configuration and later share another set of objects using a
different configuration.
Over time, objects shared to the project may get iterated in PDM; the
iteration in the project
may no longer be the latest, or it may no longer adhere to the
configuration specification
originally used for sharing the object to the project. The update action
is invoked from
the project page and applies to all objects contained in the project
baseline. The update
action updates the project baseline with newer iterations of the shared
objects from the
PDM system. The new iterations are determined based on the configuration
specification
provided by the user at the time of the update. The iterations that were
previously in
the porject baseline and are currently downloaded to workspaces continue
to be shared.
However, those iterations will no long be used in subsequent downloads to
workspaces.

ProjectLink Question

I received two responses pointing me to update the project.

I failed to mention one point in my previous email...I removed the model from the project when I was done modifying it the first time.

Now I would like to add the model back to the project so I can make more changes, but the system will not let me. When I try to do an update the model does not show up in the update list.

I also forgot to mention that I am using Windchill 9.0 M050.

ProjectLink Question

I think that I may have found out what was causing the problem.

When I shared the drawing and let Windchill collect the dependant objects it would select the objects that were removed from the project. But if I selected just the components and not he drawing everything was able to be shared as usual.

So it looks like it had something to do with the drawing.

ProjectLink Question

ProjectLinkers,

It is possible to "Automatically execute activities and deliver tasks" from a project template? I am trying to reduce the amount of steps needed to create a project. I do not want to have to go through all the steps of the New Project creation wizard.

Also can the project category be set in the project template.

Thanks
Rich

ProjectLink Question

Hi Richard,

When I was at Lifetime, we did just this. We created project templates
that were set to automatically execute activities and deliver the tasks.
You can also define the category in your template.



I would recommend that you keep a defined project so that you can
easily update your templates. If you do need to make a change, you can
change your defined project, export it to a file and then import that
file in as a new iteration of your template.



Hope this helps,
