ProductView 8.0 - Annotations and Sectioning
Course Code        TRN-WBT1871-S
Course Length      3 Hrs

Overview
  In this course, you learn several different methods to create construction geometry.
  Construction geometry is useful when measuring distances, sectioning models, creating
  mark-ups, and creating constraints. You learn how to create annotation sets within a PDM
  system, such as Windchill PDMLink or Windchill ProjectLink. You also learn how to retrieve
  the annotation sets from the PDM system. Creating annotations is an important method for
  communicating design intent and design changes throughout the enterprise. Finally, you
  learn advanced sectioning methods in ProductView. These methods enable you to easily
  create cross-sections of your models so that you can visualize internal components as well
  as profiles of the cut components.
  After you finish this course, you will complete Pro/FICIENCY skills assessment questions.
  These questions are used to help reinforce your understanding of the course topics.
  After completing this course, you will be able to:
   • Create construction points, axes, planes, and orientation frames.
   • Set the pick target.
   • Create annotation sets.
   • Save annotation sets to a PDM system.
   • Retrieve annotation sets from a PDM system.
   • Section an assembly.

Windchill 8.0 Workgroup Manager for ECAD
Course Code        TRN-WBT1842-S
Course Length      2 Hours

Overview
  This two hour Web-based training will explore Workgroup Manager for ECAD, an optional
  Windchill add-on for ECAD data management. Workgroup Manager for ECAD is a Java
  application that communicates with the Windchill server to access or store electronic design
  data. It provides an ECAD-application integration to the Windchill Foundation & PDM
  system, Windchill PDMLink, and Windchill ProjectLink. The Workgroup Manager for ECAD
  enables Windchill users to directly manage engineering information and create structures
  and assemblies in an integrated PDM environment.
  You can build enterprise-level product information models by creating association links
  between ECAD objects (boards, assemblies, schematics, and file groups) and Windchill
  objects. Enterprise items managed by Windchill can contain additional information used in
  the definition of the product information model (such as technical specifications, process
  plans, routing documents, and engineering change orders).
  This session includes hands-on tutorials on general tasks, such as searching, checking out,
  updating, and checking in the ECAD data. You also learn how to perform the client-side
  Workgroup Manager setup.
  After completing this course you will be able to understand the main features of the
  Workgroup Manager, configure Workgroup Manager, and manage ECAD data using the
  Workgroup Manager for ECAD.
  At the end of the course, you will complete Pro/FICIENCY skills assessment questions. These
  questions are used to help reinforce your understanding of the course topics.

Prerequisites
   •   T1816-080 Introduction to Windchill PDMLink 8.0 or the WBT equivalents
   •    T1804-080 Introduction to Windchill ProjectLink

  collaborate, annotate, and automatically compare the electronic designs created by the
  ECAD tools.
  This session includes hands-on tutorials on various data manipulation tasks such as
  searching, creating annotations, performing measurements, and cross-highlighting between
  board and schematic. You will also learn how to compare two versions of an ECAD design
  and explore the differences. Moreover, the data exchange between the InterComm
  viewables and native ECAD authoring tools is also discussed.
  After completing this course you will be able to understand the main features of the
  InterComm technology including InterComm Expert, EDAcompare, and EDAconduit.
  At the end of the course, you will complete Pro/FICIENCY skills assessment questions. These
  questions are used to help reinforce your understanding of the course topics.
