About Service Publishing
You can publish a representation of a publication structure, an information structure, or a parts list. The representation can also be associated with the service structure and saved as an object in Windchill. Windchill Service Information Manager uses Windchill Visualization Services and Arbortext Publishing Engine for publishing, which require configuration by your administrator.
