The challenge

The change process in Windchill is very comprehensive but not always easy to see all the relevant information quickly and clearly. When interrogating and change notice for example, the user needs to navigate through multiple pages to see the relevant attributes, affected/resulting objects, the approvals and any associated processes.

Internal Communication

Sometimes mistakes can occur when applying changes to systems that are not fully integrated with Windchill

External Communication

In some industries, it is a requirement to communicate all product changes to the customer without Windchill (e.g. Aerospace & Defense)

The solution

PDSVISION implemented myPDS Report to close the gap in communication of change inside and outside the business.

  • Users can generate reports on demand to quickly collect all details of the change in an easy-to-read format.
  • Reports can be generated automatically through a workflow so that the output is attached to the change object immediately after release.
  • Output can be branded and configured to suit customer requirements – only showing the information that’s needed.

Business value

  • Saves time and allows users to focus on value added tasks.
  • Reduce errors downstream by presenting information in a clear and concise manner.
