Asset Republish

Status: Under Review
by steve.schuchard on ‎11-07-2012 10:45 AM

When Creating Assets, often I have to repeatedly republish the asset. It would be nice to have a Republish workflow that could do the following with one button:


- publish to same folder

- publish with the same asset name (to overwrite)

- Set 2D View Options.


Also, if the asset has already been published, these setting should be remembered.

If one uses Factory Assets and Connectors to configure a new piece of equipment on a Factory Layout, it would be handy to publish this new equipment configuration as its own Factory Asset, from the Factory Layout environment.  This is similar to the idea of "Creating Assets using Assets".  Hope all is well and have a blessed day!

Unite the UCS's

Why does the FDS layout have a different UCS than standard Inventor files? It makes for some frustrating moments when inserting non-asset part files. It's not that it causes problems, its just annoying!

We need more properties added to the assets

We must have the possibility to add more production information's to the assets. Then we can use them for simulation and optimization. Also this assets need to be used in the early stage of the process.

Workflow - define your stations include. all relevant properties - place them in your factory - do simulation/optimization - check locations of stations against the factory building - do optimization again.


Today the Process simulation has only icons - so no idea what it will be. If this process is final - you start again in ACA with the optimization (and you type in all the properties again).
