Use the term Enterprise Part, this way you remove the confusion from

WT = Windchill Technology.

I'm not sure if it's true, but I had heard that they didn't use "WC" for
Windchill since that stood for "Water Closet" in Great Britain.

WT= Windchill Type and EPM = Engineering Part Management

The T is for type as far as I ever had heard. You have to think of it in terms of a programmer. Since the objects sublcass and implement several layers of java interfaces...change management is classic example of their thinking...you have a ChangeRequest and a WTChangeRequest subclassing ChangeRequest.

I do believe there is a document that explained this at one point. The JavaDoc even perhaps or customizers guide.

The name "wt" Part, wt this and that what does it mean?

When I was a PTC Windchill Implementation Consultant in training at Arden
Hills, MN back in about 2001, I was told WT = "Windchill Technology." It
might have been, "Windchill Technologies." But I know they didn't tell me
"Windchill Type."

Of course, I wouldn't be surprised if they taught me the wrong answer.
