I'll start!

 

I had two opportunities this week to introduce internal folks from other departments to the magic of PLM 360.  In less than half an hour we were able to identify a current process from their department we could model easily in PLM 360.  And by easily I mean in that half hour time slot, we created workspaces, users, groups, roles - the whole bit.

 

Left them both with homework to go through the tours and training material and flesh it out more, but I'm still amazed that folks who don't think they can spell PLM can get the hang of using the solution for business process modeling *like that*.

 

Hoping some of my colleagues can chime in as well - I know a lot of them are doing cool stuff!

I created a Revisioned Control Workspace called: Document and Document BOMs in my own tenant. This workspace is used solely to store documents such as coporate policies, software manuals etc. One can also build a document BOM where related documents can be struture like a physical BOM. This workspace can then be associated with the Items and BOMs workspace via the Workspace Relationships.

I then add this workspace to the Workspace Relationships of the Docuemnt Change Order.

With this setup, I can then accomplish the following scenario:

 

1) Create revision controlled Documents using Document Change Order.

2) Add the document to an assembly defined in the Item and BOM workspace via an Engineering Change order.

3) This is useful in associating documents to a Physical BOM.

I'll join in.....to start with, I created an automatic RFQ process.

 

Basically, when an item reaches a particular state in the workflow an RFQ is automatically created and linked to the original item. The RFQ contains a link to a DWG that can be edited and marked up using AutooCAD WS by the supplier so they can provide DFM feedback. I added a loop back transition in the RFQ process so that the supplier can notify the requester that they have a question or have added a note via AutoCAD WS

;

One of the first workspaces I created was a Personel workspace to manage the people that are working on and involved in a particular project. Not to replace HR systems, but to include relevant 'people' information that an be used to how involvement within a project/programme. Using relationships I can see exactly which project managers are managing which projects and then drill into the project detail.

 

I'm also working on a new set of workspaces and processes for compliance which I should hopefully be in a position to share next week.

 

Cheers

Michelle,

 

Thanks for your inspiration!!  have raised the intertest of several individuals ( from Industry Strategy and Marketing and PSS for AEC) in my SF office to take a deeper look at PLM360 and I'll have a quick demo with them next week.

I've been working on barcode driven shipping workspaces at the moment. With all kinds of goodies built in. I have come up against some product limitations though, some of which I've found work arounds, and others I will continue to try and find other solutions or wait until product updates hook me up (these issues mainly surrround the extremely limited features available in the current BOM system). But all in all, its solved a number of problems for us which is very excting indeed.
