I would like to have a workspace downloaded/ checked out for me to bring with me to be filled in where there is no internet connection. At a later time, I wich to easily upload/ check in. (I am aware of the import feature)
One situation, a meeting at a customer where I have an action list/ meeting notes to be filled in using a template in PLM360.
An other situation, factory audit in China, where I fill in the needed items as I go along.
One of the ways we are using PLM360 is to gather new product ideas and vet those ideas for the selection of NPD projects. We have fields for product line, market, global region, etc that tell specifics about the idea.
If we had the option to create a scatter chart as a report output it could really assist us in selecting which ideas are the best. For example: The ability to visualize and plot the complexity of a project vs. the ROI could help to identify the incremental, distinctive and breakthrough opportunities.
Presently, I can create a picklist which can link me to an item in another (or the same workspace). But there is no way for me to see that relationship from the other side.
There is some abiltiy to do this using the BoM and Relationships. But BoM is a very specific relationship model, and Relationships are too generic.
I would like the ability to add a field type on the "linked" object that references the linking object. The field could be read-only, as I mostly want it for reporting.
For instance, if I have an "Inspection" that has a field "Inspected Item" that references an "Item", I'd like to put a "inspections" field on the "Item" workspace that shows me all the inspections. This item has been included in.
Eventually, I can see this being enhance to support:
editing the relationship from the "linked" side
Showing fields other than the description (a mini-grid) for instance in this case, I'd really like to see the "status" of the inspection.
The default text box in the initial view should be customizable or auto size to the text in it. I realize you can hover over it and see the fill value but it would be handy to see the whole thing to start
A Tenant may have 100-1000 buildings managed by a large property management group or builder etc.
Owner/Operator/Vendor groups to have access to View/create/update Accident/Service/Maintenance or other workspace requests and interact with Project schedules/tasks related to specific Buildings.
Owner/Operator/Vendor groups are linked to Buildings ( currently groups have access to roles which are linked to workspaces ) This feature is related to data within specific Facilities Management Workspaces.
Configurable Picklist based onOwner/Operator/Vendor groups assigment to only present specific values e.g.Buildings
On Item creation, allow a script to add all Groups assigned to the Building which is required field to be added as Additonal Owners
When creating a project that with multiple levels of tasks and subprojects I want to be able to get a chart for labor hours projected/need. I realize that this currently can be done using multiple apps combined but I would prefer a way to do this simply with a purpose built app or report.
I say this because in Excel I was able to build a project, assign labor hours and see a graph of projected labor (therfore costs) for a myriad of projects all in a single (albiet huge) spreadsheet. It's a tough sell to get a project manager to switch to 360 when Excel seems easier to use and presents richer data in a single interface than 360 which would need multiple items.
In all fairness I did not actually configure 360 to perform the above mentioned function. I spoke to Trung Nguyen out of SF who explained to me that it would take 3 items to replace my spreadsheet.
It would seem to me that a purpose built app/function/capability within a single item would make more sense than having multiple items to perform an equivelant function as Excel.
The more 360 can displace MS project and spreadsheets for project sheduling and management the better.
