Work Instructions Example Implementation
The work instructions example implementation provides a single screen enabling operators to walk through a set of work instructions and view their associated media and text.
Screenshot of the unified work instructions screen mashup with data.
The work instructions screen (PTC.SCA.SCO.UnifiedWorkInstructionsScreenMashup) includes a materials list, media display pane, and text instructions pane over a sequential navigation bar. The sequential navigation bar shows a tile for each step in a set of work instructions. Selecting a tile in the navigation bar shows the media, text instructions, and materials list associated with the selected work instructions step in their respective panes. The media display pane includes tabs for different types of media: graphic images, videos, or CAD diagrams. The materials list can be collapsed and expanded by clicking Collapse icon. and Expand icon..
Cross-selection highlighting between the materials list and the CAD diagram means that selecting a row in the materials list highlights the related part in the CAD diagram. Similarly, selecting a part in the CAD diagram highlights the related part in the materials list. Use CTRL + click to select multiple rows in the materials list or multiple parts in the CAD diagram. If there are multiple CAD diagrams, cross-selection highlighting is only supported in the default CAD diagram. Cross-selection highlighting is only supported for work instructions that were converted from Windchill MPMLink in occurrence mode.
The input for the work instructions screen is the unique identifier (UID) of the parent work definition for a set of work instructions. This input is passed to the mashups called from the work instructions screen. For more information on work definitions and their related information, see Work Definition Schema.
To view a set of work instructions in the example implementation, create a mashup which supplies the UID of the parent work definition to the work instructions screen (PTC.SCA.SCO.UnifiedWorkInstructionsScreenMashup).
The PTC.SCA.SCO.UnifiedWorkInstructionsScreenMashup mashup is also called from the Work Instructions tab for a work definition in the Manufacturing Planning example implementation.
The mashups for the materials list (PTC.SCA.SCO.MaterialsListMashup), media display pane (PTC.SCA.SCO.WorkDefinition.InfoTabContainedMashup), text instructions pane (PTC.SCA.SCO.TextualWorkInstructionsMashup), sequential navigation bar (PTC.SCA.SCO.WorkDefinitionHorizontalSequentialNavigation), and work instruction tile (PTC.SCA.SCO.WorkDefinitionStep) can be duplicated and used in other mashups to create screens useful for your business needs. For more information on each of these mashups, see the following topics:
