In two previous posts on the topic of project execution and tracking in Autodesk PLM 360, we covered the benefits of Milestones and Project Management. While these methods provide a comprehensive solution for tracking projects that can provide much value-add, sometimes less is more! If the overhead of these methods seems to be greater than the benefit for a particular application—and all that is needed is a simple view of the task owner and whether the task is complete—you may want to consider using the Grid tab instead. In this video we’ll step through what this would look like in the tool.
In a previous post we covered how Milestones can be used for project execution and tracking in Autodesk PLM 360. In today’s video we’ll take a close look at Project Management functionality, including Tasks with Milestones, to explore more functionality in the system. Project Management combined with Milestones in Autodesk PLM 360 provides all of the following:
Autodesk PLM 360 provides project execution and tracking through Project Management, Milestone, and Tasks functionalities. Moreover, Grid tab functionality can also be used to easily monitor completed tasks. Cool! But how do we break all these capabilities into
This post and the next two
from me will be devoted to giving you the how and why of all these methods, so that you can more effectively administer project execution and tracking in your Autodesk PLM 360 implementation.
In a previous post, we covered how to set up your Autodesk PLM 360 tenant to clone an item to a specific state in a workflow. If your organization makes use of the Additional Owners field and requires cloning it as well, you’ll need to do further configuration & scripting. Watch this video to understand the steps for cloning Additional Owners!
If your company manages high-volume, high-turnover projects, you may need a better method to keep track of all the projects; especially when it comes to knowing which ones are blocked or impeded. We recently helped a company configure Autodesk PLM 360 to store and manage their project data by:
- Leveraging a custom-built workflow
- Graphing the data to track the status of multiple (40+) projects in a single view
Well, we may not be able to help you get to any particular meditation state, but today we’ll delve into getting to certain workflow states. Do you ever find yourself in this scenario in your Autodesk PLM 360 tenant? You might have an item at a particular state in a workflow (say, state 3 out of 9) and you need to clone the item and make a very small change. When the change is of a type that previous workflow states do not need visited, you want the new item to pop to the same workflow state as the original item.
Importing data from your legacy system into your cloud-based Autodesk PLM 360 tenant is a request we hear often. If, for example, you have existing items and bills of materials (BOMs) that are released in the legacy system at certain revisions, you will most likely need them replicated in Autodesk PLM 360. There is a built-in import tool to do just that (among other things). However, there are several ways this tool can be used, and not every way will get you all your desired results. In this video we will guide you through the best approach and usage of the tool for importing legacy data.
From Autodesk veeps to customer stories and open-air networking, Accelerate 2015 on Sept 1-2 inspired, catalyzed, and educated. Highlights included stunning images from Autodesk PLM 360 customer BAC, PLM analysts trying to avoid fraught buzzwords in the panel discussion, and a sneak peek at Autodesk cloud PDM and “evented web” integration for Autodesk PLM 360.
Working Versions, the Working Revision Identifier, the WIP Revision, and the Unreleased Lifecycle…Do you know what these non-released statuses are, when they occur, how to differentiate between them, and how to manage them in Autodesk PLM 360? We are often asked to clear up confusion that users and administrators have on this subject. So an explanation of the “what”, “when”, and “how” of the non-released statuses, and more, is what we are covering today!
