What is a Work Group Manager
(WGM)
An interface where designers or suppliers can perform
everyday design tasks in their familiar MCAD environment
while using Windchill to manage MCAD data throughout its
lifecycle

Benefits
• All data on one location (Intellectual Property on site)
• WGM engineer uses “your” Way of Working
• Extremely fast review capabilities through massive
assemblies by Creo View
• Review possibilities for everybody throughout the entire
lifecycle
• Cost savings on importing geometry
• Cost savings on workstations / Creo Licenses

Windchill Parts (WT Parts)
• Windchill parts are used to setup product structures
• CAD files are only a part of a product structure
17-7-2015
Windchill workgroup managers
17
Demo 1
1. Create Pro/E part, Check-In; auto associate WT-Part
2. Create NX part, Check-In; auto associate WT-Part
3. Make small modification to show Windchill behaviour
17-7-2015

18
Creo Elements / Pro
• Create geometry in Pro/E; note CSYS
17-7-2015
Windchill workgroup managers
19
Creo Elements / Pro 5.0
• Use File, Check-In, Custom Check-In to create viewable
file from Creo Elements / Pro
• Auto Associate parts to create WT-part in the Check-In
dialogbox, NEXT
