It would be very helpful to have workflow on a revision controlled object. This would enable us to control and track the development of items. Today we create a task in the tasks workspace and link it to the revision controlled item that work needs to be done on. On the change order we then track the progress of the tasks and only allow the CO to progress if all tasks are compete. It would be great to have workflow on the working version that would allow the steps to develope the item to be followed witout having to create a seperate record inorder to track it.

Hi ihadden,

 

I appreciate you taking the time to submit this idea on the Idea Station.

 

This is a very interesting request.  Normally most people utilize the revision controlled workspace for lifecycle tracking of Items and BOMS.   

 

I will review this request and add to our future enhancement list.

 

thank you,

This would help with automating the execution of a test plan where tests shift and later we would want to compare to the original plan.

Filter BOM View

Status: Accepted
by Valued Contributor BiggePLM on ‎07-25-2014 11:55 AM

To aide breaking down of a BOM View into lists for different purposes the custom BOM view is great. But when you have multiple functional areas looking at that information such as Procurement, Fabrication, Wharehouse etc. it would be nice to be able to filter the list to show only items in the BOM that met a specific criteria. Similar to the way Excell uses it Autofilter.

 

The idea would be that you have a filter row you could pick or enter the filter than apply and the currently displayed view would get filtered to show only matching items (parent items could be included if that causes issues). This functionality would be used for both Nested and Flat BOM Views.

Hi BiggePLM,

 

I appreciate you taking the time to write a very detail request to the Idea Station.

 

There have been numerous requests around BOM View Filter and the ability to pull information from multiple workspaces.

 

I will add this to our feature list.

 

Thank you,

BOM Views for Flat BOM

Status: Future Consideration
by Valued Contributor BiggePLM on ‎07-25-2014 11:51 AM

It would be a time saver to be able to configure a custom BOM view for the Flat view, Similar to the nested view. This could possibly be implemented with a checkbox for and Applies to Nested, Flat or Both.

 

We have set up custom BOM field that is used to trigger spawing of tasks to perform action on the item in the BOM Row, I.E. Generate an RFQ request where the item info is copied via script to the RFQ Record. The issue is that in the nested view the quantity shown is the unit quantity not the project rolled up quantity. To get that you need to switch to the flat view get the rolled up quantity and switch back to the nested view and enter the quantity to Request for Quote.

 

This is just one use case, but feel that functionality would make the BOM View for useful.

Is there a chance that the same ability to move multiple dates out at the same time that is found in the milestones tab, can be replicated in the Project Management tab? With the complex way we are using PLM360 to support project management we cannot utilize the milestones tab.

 

That said we really like the ability to move multiple task dates out without having to change them one by one.

 

Is this possible?

 

Thanks!

Hi dnaugle,

 

We appreciate you taking the time to submit this idea.

 

To clarify:

 

1.  You want the ability to shift the dates on the Project Management Tab.

2.  By shifting the end date, how would you compensate for the shifting of the Milestone.

       a) Do we keep the milestones the same but only shift the end date

       b) Do we need to recalculate the Milestones to compensate for the date changes

3. In MS Project when you shift the dates, it will also shift the predecessors. 

      a) Do you want that same functionality?

 

Please provide more details and clarify some questions.

 

We will take it into consideration, and we will add to our future enhancement list.

 

thank you,

Project Management Improvements

Status: Accepted
by Mentor on ‎04-10-2014 03:26 PM

Hi,

 

I feel there is a need for significant improvements to the project management tab. I have been using it for a while and I have a number of issues. Many of them have bee reported here already (e.g. ability to add columns). However there are some fundamental changes required to make this tab useful for managing anything other than simple projects. Some other issues are;

 

- it is essential that reports can be run on projects

- milestone dates must be able to be changed and modified through the project UI (regardless of whether they are linked tasks or not)

- milestones and milestone status should be visible in the gantt chart

- Selectable colours

- etc etc etc

 

I'm a huge advocate of PLM 360 but currently the PM tab is letting it down. I've used another web based project management system before that I think you guys should have a look at. Please PM me for the URL if you're interested.

 

Regards,

 

David.

PLM360 is proving to be a great tool for us in support of new idea mangement, project selection and project management. But one other piece could make all the difference...

 

A communication tool. Something where we could share quick notes or a chat with teammates in a project community. Perhaps being able to "watch" an item for new comments, specific conversations regarding that item that are happing everyday on some level. The daily notifications are helpful but a section of the homepage or a seperate window that could be kept open that displays "live" data would be fantastic.

 

The goal, replace all project specific communication now taking place in e-mail. Facilitate and store this communication within an item and display all "watched" item communications on my homepge / dashboard.

 

Thanks

PLM360: Grouping Tasks in a Schedule

Status: Comments Requested
by dnaugle on ‎11-06-2013 01:01 PM

When you roll up individual tasks under a workspace record, and then link that record to a project schedule, you get a high level group with the tasks listed beneith it. This group can then be collapsed to make the Gantt chart much cleaner.

 

It would be helpful when adding "manual" (non-linked) tasks if there was a way to group these tasks so that they to can be closed and opened visually.

I would love the ability to filter linked tasks on the project management tab so I don't have to look at tasks that are already completed, especially when they still show as red if they finished late.  

 

Another nice feature would be removing linked tasks from the project via script once the linked task transitions to a completed state.
