Benefits and Description
The following capabilities are available in PTC Windchill 10.2 M010:
- Create and associate a new manufacturer or vendor part to the AML/AVL table—You can launch a supplier part creation wizard from the AML/AVL table. Additionally, you can also specify the sourcing status to be assigned to the added supplier part. This feature improves sourcing administrator productivity. Rather than navigating across multiple screens to create and add a supplier part as an AML/AVL, you can conveniently perform this action from within the AML/AVL table.
- Add attributes in sourcing relationships—A site administrator can now define additional attributes in the sourcing relationship. These attributes are available to users when creating and adding a new manufacturer or vendor part through the AML/AVL table. This feature allows you to specify additional information on the sourcing relationship, which means that more information can be captured in the AML/AVL table.
- Views available on the AML/AVL table—A view for the AML/AVL table can be created by an administrator and shared to all users. End users can also create their own views. You can create custom views to display the information that is most important to you.
