Configuration Level Details
The configuration level of the product structure in Windchill Aerospace and Defense is designed for configuration management and change management of configuration items and design solutions.
Managing Effectivity—An effectivity range specifies a product serial number range for which a design solution addresses a configuration item.
Change Management—A change management procedure that includes change objects meant to associate design solutions to configuration items for a specific effectivity range and to address changes needed to the product structure.
Configuration Level Structure with the Link Object—Out of the box, Windchill Aerospace and Defense Configuration Items and Design Solutions (CIDSCFG) is configured to use the Configuration Item-Design Solution (CI-DS) model for the configuration level. CIDSCFG also supports the Link Object model, but additional configuration is necessary.
