XML Loader -Resources, Process Plan and Operations -Samples, Order of Load?

XML Loader -Resources, Process Plan and Operations -Samples, Order of Load?

Hello.


We would like to load a series of simple Process Plans and Operations already in our MRP system into Windchill to facilitate going live with the New MPMLink... There are a few Thousand Simple (Single Operation - 1 piece Part Operations that exist in MRP... we want to get hat level done so user in Windchill will not need to make assumptions on whether that lowest level Plan has been completed)


Before we Trial & Error the types and order, has anyone else loaded? and are you willing to give samples or which loader you did when.


In Windchill Operatons can not exist without an Process, while Resources can stand alone.



It makes sense to load ResourcesWorkCenters/Tooling/Skills/etc... (Basically no different than an other wtPart,)


But would we load Process Plan Next so we have something to load/link Operations Against? Or is the CSV for a Process Plan more a BOM with its Operations listed underneath.


Assuminglast welink the Resources to Operation. And the Process Plan to the wtPart (Manuf View) Last... (Allocate Parts Manually id no loader exists)



In General, we want to see what we can do with the OOTB XML Loaders...

PS


Also heard to look into the Windchill Bulk Migrator...

Good luck! Yes if I were in your position the process plans would get
loaded after the operations and part soft types for resources are in
system...yes like a BOM though I tend to think of work instructions as
serial bill of instructions or steps. Rules for loaders are different then
UI rules. The link to process plan is actually a separate object.
