Proposal document - Product Container & Libraries

Hi All,

Current we are planning to define ACLs across the organization and for which we need to write a proposal document for the following:

  • product container and library setup (what product containers +libraries should we have
  • when do we decide to have a new product container or library
  • should we ever hide/remove product containers
  • how do we manage secret projects with containers

Basically looking at best practice/examples for inspiration with a rough explanation of cost vs benefit of splitting out into lots of product containers

Anyone out there who has already established such a setup in their organization and would like to share their experience and possibly a rough guideline on why and how it was established.

 

Awaiting eagerly to hear back from the community:)

Regards,

PRKAC

Re: Proposal document - Product Container & Libraries

We've been slowly building guidelines by trial and error. We are using workflows in Windchill for approving different objects within each Product/Library. As such, the most defining feature for when you need a new Product/Library is when you need to have a different set of approvers. 

In general, our Libraries house information that is general-use (not specific to a single product). These are mostly read-only to all users, with select people who can add content. 

Users must request access and get approval to have access to a Product. Secret Products wouldn't be listed, and only authorized users can view/edit them.

Hi Garnet,

Thanks for sharing the inputs.

By any means do you have a template or set of rules in place that can be shared which defines how things are done?

 

Looking forward to hearing back from you.
