The Product Development Company has announced the release of Windchill 10.0, the newest version of PTC’s product lifecycle management (PLM) software.

With the latest release of Windchill, PTC is enabling manufacturers to do more throughout the product lifecycle, know more about product performance and get more value from PLM.

With new capabilities that focus on product analytics and quality management, Windchill 10.0 allows customers to more effectively define, manage, and validate complete bills of material (BOMs), providing linkages across domain-specific views of product structures throughout the entire lifecycle.

Windchill 10.0 also includes a new user experience and improved system administration, making it easier than ever to use and maintain and enabling broad adoption.

Windchill centrally manages all product deliverables including MCAD, ECAD, documentation and service information.

Windchill 10.0 unifies its ECAD data-management capabilities to offer a common user experience, consistent with its existing approach for MCAD data management.

To ensure highly profitable maintenance, repair and overhaul organisations, the processes of service and spare parts planning must be concurrent with product development.

When combined with Creo for 3D illustrated and animated service instructions and parts lists, and Arbortext for technical communications creation and delivery, Windchill will support a complete, integral service information solution.

With advances in top-down-design and configuration management, and efficiencies in interference management, Windchill 10.0 supports business process optimisation in many areas, but most notably for detailed design, variant design and generation, and verification and validation.

With Windchill 10.0, PTC’s Relex and Insight product lines have been rebranded as part of the Windchill product range to better reflect their availability as a standalone offering, as well as part of a comprehensive Windchill solution.

Windchill Quality Solutions are designed to help improve next-generation products and reduce the cost of poor quality by preventing repeat errors and building reliability and risk management into the product-development lifecycle.

New offerings include solutions for CAPA (Corrective Action Preventive Action) to accelerate problem resolution through improved monitoring and root cause identification.

Equally important, Windchill Product Analytics (formerly Insight) provides early knowledge of product performance and includes new solutions for cost visibility and carbon footprint analysis.

These enhancements bolster an already rich solution for materials and substance management, which includes reporting against compliance specifications such as REACH and RoHS.

Collectively, these solutions help companies understand environmental impacts and address potential points of failure before they occur.

Windchill 10.0 is said to provide an improved user experience along with several administrative process improvements.
