Benefits and Description

In previous Windchill releases, the CATIA V5 Windchill Workgroup Manager has ignored missing references and created EPM documents without exposing those references to Windchill. With Windchill 10.1, the CATIA V 5 Workgroup Manager will now, by default, expose these missing references as incomplete dependent objects to the Windchill system in similar manner to how Creo Parametric handles missing reference documents. These incomplete dependent objects can be used to automatically resolve incomplete dependents with documents present in the Windchill system. However, please be aware that documents which contain required incomplete dependents will not be allowed to check in without resolving the incomplete dependent.

For more information, refer to the “Managing Missing Dependent Objects” section of the Windchill Workgroup Manager for CATIA V5 Administrator’s and User’s Guide, or refer to the help center installed with the Windchill Work Group Manager:
