In any company, the product development process generates a tremendous amount of intellectual property. To reduce time-to-market, a team must share the data and collaborate on product design. Without the ability to control product information, you find multiple developers using different variations of the same content, which can result in overlapping or inconsistent designs.
This abundance of data creates a problem: how can you maintain the integrity of your product information in an environment where multiple people are working on the same set of files?
Windchill is a collaborative environment, enabled with today’s latest web technology, and has been designed to enable you to develop and manage data more effectively and efficiently. It provides your entire enterprise with a common information-sharing mechanism that stores and manages information, manages information evolution, controls access to information, and provides collaboration tools.
