Benefits and Description

Windchill 10.1 M010 includes the following enhancements to the Windchill-FORAN Gateway integration:

There are two configuration specification types, Latest and Serial Number Effectivity (Windchill version-based effectivity). Selecting Latest publishes and updates the latest available version on Windchill. Selecting Serial Number Effectivity publishes and updates a version with a specific effectivity. The user can publish information in line with Windchill View Versions, like design or manufacturing. PTC recommends that you publish information from multiple FORAN projects and not from a single project, since the FORAN Architecture does not allow history to be managed; all information present is the latest. A user would typically manage design information in one project and manufacturing or conceptual information in another project of FORAN.
