We are using VP 2013 and Dynamics Axapta in our company. We export complete BOM's with DWF files to DAX. Problem is that you don't know if DWF is out of date or system controlled(made by job server). So before release we check the top of the BOM with the pack and go function. This gives you an answer if the DWF are out of date. We then have to send the out of date files to job server for a new file.
Could there be a function that said check DWF files to the BOM before release? And if the BOM has files that are out of date or not system generated, send the complete list to job server for update.
Right now Item Visualization watermarks are limited to being set by Lifecycle state, and of course in Item Master you cannot add lifecycle states. I would like to be able to set them by state AND category. For example, a production print, set to Released, would say Approved For Construction... whereas a quote print, also released, would say something like Proposal - Not Approved.... or somehting like that.
Just needs to be more flexibility in general on watermarks. The user or admin should have more options and control.
We are just starting to use Inventor Publisher, and I've found that the Vault integration is a little too simplistic. Currently I can't use the Where Used tab on a component or assembly to see if it is used in a Publisher document. Also, I can't use the Uses tab on the Publisher document to see the component files. Doing a Copy Design on an IAM file should give the option to also copy the Publisher document. Basically, Vault should work with Publisher the same way that it works with Inventor. It will be hard to control a revision scheme to Publisher literature documents if I can't use Vault to check against the component files. I may do a dimensionsal change to a component and have no idea that component is used in a Publisher document. Now my literature is incorrect and nobody has any idea unless they open the Publisher file. It's a problem that I can easily see happening.
