Active Workspace 3.3 – User Productivity Improvements – Completing a Thought

Active Workspace 3.3 – User Productivity Improvements – Completing a Thought

Multi-select for Project Security

Active Workspace 3.3 provides the capability to apply project security to multiple objects simultaneously in Teamcenter version 10.1.7 and 11.2.3, and higher .

This video showcases the new capability in detail.  Click here

Highlights include

  • Assign multiple objects to one or more projects
  • Remove multiple objects from one or more projects
  • Remove objects from projects that are common to all selections
  • Honor project membership and access while making assignments

Structure support 

The second new feature is the ability to assign content of a structure to a project.  While viewing structure content, users can assign the elements in the structure to projects.  Users  can multiply select elements, to assign them, or use the option to assign all of the content in a structure, or just to some level.  Users can also assign the specifically referenced revisions, or to all revisions, so that as the structure content revises, it is also assigned to the project by default.

Highlights include

  • Assign projects to content while working within the context of a structure
  • Assign projects to entire structure or up to a specific level of the structure
  • Optionally apply project security to the revision or all revisions
  • Multi-select to assign projects

Effectivity Authoring

With Active Workspace 3.3, users can assign existing effectivity criteria to elements of the structure to indicate when those elements are applicable.  Users can also define new effectivity criteria using dates or units.  For example, this element is effective for this date range or for this range of production units.

Users can also name the effective ranges, to enable sharing, or reuse, of that same range when applying effectivity to other elements in the structure.

Highlights include

Assign existing effectivity criteria to qualify what structured content will be configured  (Teamcenter 10.1.7 and 11.2.3 and upwards)

  • Search and filter for existing effectivities to apply
  • Apply effectivity to revision status
  • Apply effectivity to occurrences in structure

Define new effectivity configuration criteria (Planned for future release, Teamcenter 11.2.3 and upwards)

  • Set units or dates to specify or edit effectivity
  • Apply specified effectivity to occurrences
  • Optionally share named effectivity to apply to other content in structure or other structures

Baseline

Another complete the thought capability in the area of structures is creating a baseline.  Baselines are used to capture a view of that structure at a point in time.  Siemens chose to make this work in the background, asynchronously so that  users can continue to work in the client as the server generates the baseline.  When it completes, the Active Workspace notification center is used to alert users that the baseline has been created.  By default, the process applies a release status of baseline, but that is configurable.

While the example shows a requirement structure, baselining works with any type of structure. Highlights include

  • Executes asynchronously to allow the user to continue other work
  • Notification sent on completion – click notification to open the baseline
  • Applies a release status of “Baseline” by default, but is configurable
  • Creates a precise baseline
  • Works with any structure content, e.g. parts, designs, and requirements

Show all Results from Find in Context

Lastly in the area of completing a thought is a visualization related topic.  In previous releases of Active Workspace, the show only results in the viewer would only work for the results that had been loaded to the client.  Users no longer have to scroll through all of the results to load them in the client before selecting the show only results in the viewer.
