Benefits and Description

Windchill gets a major facelift in Windchill 10.0. The most immediately noticeable improvement is the modern, clean, and crisp color scheme and redesigned icons. Windchill 10.0 uses a sophisticated and dynamic widget set.

The next most noticeable feature is the Navigator component. Users have told us that they very seldom use the navigation links in the previous Windchill versions.  So Windchill 10.0 gets them out of the way.  Navigation and Search are now performed in the Navigator. This will make the search results always available: users don’t need to hit the browser back-button, causing the search to be re-executed, in order to go back to the search results. 

Next are the table improvements.  Tables are a major data presentation component in and Windchill 10.0 significantly improves their usability and functionality:
