Benefits and Description

PTC Windchill PDMLink allows users to supersede parts with existing or new parts. When a part is obsolete and no longer in production, it can be superseded. This is different from using alternate or replacement parts.

For more information, see the “Superseding Parts Overview” topic in the PTC Windchill Help Center. Tip: Enter the topic name in the PTC Windchill Help Center search field to easily navigate to the topic.
