Other Considerations
This topic provides additional considerations for setting up the integration of Creo Parametric and Windchill.
Configuring Object Collections
The collection process determines how an object’s dependents are collected when the object is selected for a data management operation, for example, Check In. An administrator or a user can define the default collector behavior using the Preference Management utility.
For more information, see About the Collector and Configuring the Initial Collection of Objects for Actions.
Configuring Revisions
An administrator can configure the sequence of steps in the revision process by using the Initial Revision Parameter preference in the WindchillPreference Management utility.
For more information, see Administering Revision.
