Technical Highlights.


fully customizable

(PDM data model, dialogs, icons, additional PDM
functionality for PDM
-
Workbench)


communication between CATIA session and PDM
session based on Web Services


SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) is used as
communication protocol (firewall
-
friendly)


security and encryption mechanisms on data
transmission

Technical Highlights.


using the XML
-
based protocol SOAP and Web
Services because of:


independence of


platform/operating system


programming language


transport protocol


standard supported and further developed by


Microsoft, IBM, HP, ... thus ensuring good
interoperability for the future


security aspects


http or https can be used


encryption of XML tag values

Functionality: Dynamic Actions.

“Dynamic actions” allow you to introduce new CAD Use cases to PDM
-
Workbench according to your company processes.

Therefore PDM
-
Workbench supplies a set of configuration elements which
permit you to introduce new dialogs into PDM
-
Workbench.

For those dialogs you define which PDM methods are to be executed on defined
dialog events. You also define which dialog elements deliver input for those
PDM methods.

Thus you are free to introduce new CAD Use cases to PDM
-
Workbench
provided you supplied the necessary methods in PDM.

Functionality: Dynamic Actions.

Integration of a PDM Life Cycle sequence to PDM
-
Workbench as a new CAD Use case introduced
by means of Dynamic Actions. So a designer would act within a company’s Life Cycle directly
out of PDM
-
Workbench.

Assume a part was submitted into Life Cycle “PWB Life Cycle” in Teamcenter Enterprise.


User gets his current Worklist objects with
list of next actions for each object

PDM
-
Workbench user activates dynamic
action “Review Current Work” out of
list of dynamic actions

… subsequent “Review Current Work” the next
actions on this object according to Life Cycle
definition.
