When creating and working with lifecycle states, I want to be an environment like this...
Something with boxes and arrows that I can drag around. I graphical approach like this is easier to work with and provide an easy way to see how files get routed through the entire lifecycle.
This is a good idea for a demo purpose. But actually for the all day life, the classic interface works. I think there are so many other things to improve. But it's my opinion.
I think thats a great idea, but more like the HTML 5 workflow editor in PLM 360 instead of the lifecycle one. The PLM 360 Lifecycle editor is as clunky as it could be. I think its really important for the end user to have a visualisation of the workflow built in as part of the product, which is also the control mechanism for the workflow/lifecycle itself.
I know there's a Vault add-in which creates a tab with a visualisation grid but its limited and not where near as swanky as the PLM 360 HTML5 workflow editor.
We use the Item/ECO processes.... but this would be fantastic to modify those.Unfortunately we have way too much legacy data to switch systems, and no time to rebuild.
We just release WeShining Visual Lifecycle Editor to Autodesk Exchange App Store. It's a simple but powerful tool which allows to create or edit lifecycle definition visually. More than that, you can save it into Vault directly or export it for future projects. Not sure whether this meets your requirement.
