With every release of Active Workspace, Siemens PLM keeps adding more enhanced capabilities for change management process execution, Active Workspace 3.4 is no exception.
The first enhancement is a simplified overview of change that includes most relevant information pertaining to the change. The Consolidated change overview now includes; change description, details, participants, and originating changes. There is a new visual status bar showing change maturity progress in overall maturity process. This progress chart helps users to understand and quickly determine the change maturity. There is also an easily accessible change summary that shows adds, removes, and replaces. The Impacted/ Solution items added or Lineage set via Active Workspace UI or the BOM changes done via rich client from structure manager in supersedure window are reflected in the new change summary. These easy to interpret change details help users to understand the full impact of change before they make decisions on it.
The Active Workspace 3.4 relationship browser is now improved to show all associated change objects and their relationships in the interactive relations browser. This helps users to easily understand change objects and their hierarchical relations (Implements, Implemented by, dependencies) , find change objects and other business objects relations (Problem Items, Impacted Items, Solution Items) and also relation between items (Lineage).
These new capabilities makes Active Workspace an even more preferred user interface for change management adoption.
