Benefits and Description
For those users on the move and want access to PDMLink data from anywhere and anytime, Windchill 10.1 will allow them to access Windchill via streamlined Mobile apps or via a browser from Mobile devices.
The initial release of the Windchill Mobile Apps will allow users to:
View information pages of Parts, Documents, CAD Documents, and Change Objects (e.g. problem reports, change requests, change notices, and variances)
View document content
Receive and complete workflow tasks
View Creo View 3D mechanical data
The above will be available from Apple’s App Store. Initially, Mobile apps will be supported on iPad and iPhone, and with Android device support coming soon.
Users can also get access to the full Windchill version through web browsers available on the Mobile devices. This will make the full Windchill version available on iPads, iPhones, Android phones, Android tablets, and Blackberry devices. However, some limitations will exist, among them:
It will not be possible to run applets on mobile devices.
While the ability to view 3D Creo View mechanical data is possible via the targeted Windchill Mobile Apps as described above, it will not be possible to view 3D data via the full browsers.
