It would be really helpful if I could see the milestones of the current item on its project management tab. I can see all the subtasks and expand them out to see them on the timeline but in order to see the milestones of the current item I have to switch to the milestone tab. I would like to maybe see the milestones across the top of the timeline as a visual check that all my dates align.
In our manufactruing process, we typically will work on a project with several states active at one time. For example, while we are completing engineering assembly drawings, we will be fabricating components for our assemblies in metal fab, wood fab, etc. We may also be painting some materials prior to final assmbly. Therefore our workflow is not linear. We have found a workaround with Trung's help, however we cannot see anything visual that represents the status of a project.
It seems like this would be ehlpful for any manufacturing company.
Similar to the validator for fields in item details, it would be nice to have a minimum length for workflow comments. It's great to have the 'comments required' option, but the ability to have a more complex regex.
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.
After having become more familar with PLM it appears to me that the BOM handling across workspaces are lacking.
I like the idea of having multiple workspaces because it allows me to collect different information for different types of items.
But I have come to the conclusion that this is simply not viable at this point, because:
1) PLM does not support BOM import when it references items in other workspaces. (It is possible manually)
2) Even if I did add them all manually, I cannot create a BOM view that includes my custom fields from other workspaces because the BOM view can only see the Descriptor field from other workspaces.
The result of this is that I have to put everything in a common workspace have have to clutter up the item details with a lot of fields that does not apply.
1) Include cross-workspace BOM import
2) More configurale BOM view, where I can specify the FIELDNAME (could be free text) for each column. If the FIELDNAME does not exist for a specific item/WS on the BOM, just leave it blank. For example: If I am referencing 3 different workspaces in a BOM and 2 of them has a field called PART_NUMBER, I would expect the value to be inserted if available, otherwise left blank/null.
