Benefits and Description

Many companies need to organize their products with higher level descriptions of the product architecture and then add more detailed product information within these higher level descriptions.

Windchill 9.1 provides three capabilities to help system and business administrators manage higher level product architecture descriptions

With these definitions of Product architecture in place, end user actions will be controlled by these definitions. For example, if an end user is trying to add a child to a Part of Type A, the search results for this addition will only include Parts of Type B.
