Benefits and Description
Importable packages allow users to collaborate with external partners across Windchill systems.
Like traditional export-only Windchill packages, importable packages use the collection capability to gather package contents. After locking the package, creating a delivery, and exporting a ZIP file of the package contents, the data can be imported into another Windchill system using the Received Delivery Management utility. Once imported into the target Windchill system, objects are available for view and limited use by users, as controlled by an administrative lock. Imported objects cannot be modified on the target system.
