Has anyone migrated Windchill data to Teamcenter? I'm doing some contigency planning in case we need to support Teamcenter clients in the future.
Is there a way to bulk dump metadata from Windchill to a neutral format that can be imported into Teamcenter? Can file vaults be uploaded to Teamcenter? Is anyone aware of a Windchill to Teamcenter migration application?
Thanks in advance.
Thank you for the valuable insights on this topic.
Clearly it is tricky to migrate from Windchill to team center.
Your inputs have helped me get a direction, Thank you.
Corporate politics and a direction change in philosophy.
We went from Unigraphics after 18 years to PTC products due to corporate pressure while other divisions of the corporation were allowed to stay on Unigraphics.
One division had TeamCenter for their UG data and corporate said all data had to be in Windchill, so they used TeamCenter for their day-to-day work and then uploaded after release the final dataset to Windchill.

-->Thank you, that is good work around.
At another company, the corporate data was in TeamCenter. We did the opposite. Used Windchill for the Wildfire/Creo data storage of day to day work and release. When the Drawings were released, we would do a backup of the drawing file and create PDFs of the sheets and then zip that for upload to TeamCenter.
I can understand the politics and shear complexity of large corporate structures where you end up in these solutions. We recently exited from RTX, formerly UTC which gobbled Rockwell Collins and Goodrich before that. Trying to integrate common PLM in this environment is next to impossible. You end up with suboptimal solutions like this for the local sites. Why pay for one PLM when you can pay for two at twice the price?
I know Rockwell had Enovia and opted to have sites managed CAD data outside, releasing only PDFs. Reason was complexity and reduced issues aligning different CAD versions. Collins Aero (formerly UTAS) was consolidating sites to TeamCenter. We were able to push back on integration since they wanted the same layer structure of release in Windchill then re-release in TC. Mgmt was not having it.
