Benefits and Description

Windchill 9.1 provides expanded support for defining and managing configuration specifications for product structure. With Windchill 9.1, end users are able to define, save important configuration specifications, and access saved configuration specifications for a product structure. When these capabilities are used with the Windchill 9.1 Options and Variants capabilities, users are able to save option combinations with configuration specification criteria and share with a team of designers. Each designer may choose to include saved Expansion criteria in their list. These enhanced capabilities (known as the Expansion Criteria) are available in the Product Structure Browser and Product Structure Explorer.
