Benefits and Description
In PTC Windchill 10.2 M010, standard collector support is available for parts lists and associated objects. This support allows greater flexibility when performing Move, Revise, Save As, and Delete actions. Each action opens a window where the action can be configured, including options to include (collect) associated objects in the action. The available collector options differ based on the type of task and object selected.
The Save As window has many of the same options as other collector windows, with the addition of a new icon to collect related illustrations. The Save As icon is enabled if a parts list is selected in the table.
When you click the Save As icon, the system collects any illustrations associated with the parts list and displays them in the table. These associated illustrations can then also be saved with the parts list as new illustrations.
New preferences have been added to the Service Parts category to aid the new functions and support the new collector window. These preferences work in the same way as those under the existing Save As category, but they are specific to this collector window.
The Move window has many of the same options as other collector windows, but has a different set of available collector options. For example, the Advanced Collection option allows you to select multiple associated objects for the parts list, such as illustrations, part list items, related BOMs, and content holders.
