Integration of CAD Models & Product Structure through Teamcenter Enterprise 2006-01-1353
This paper is about the methodology of integration of CAD data ( 3 D Models ) with its corresponding product structure ( EBoM ) and also about the validation of various usecase scenario. The methodology describes how single user interface is used for carrying out CAD data management, Visualization and PDM activities in Teamcenter environment..
The scope of this paper is restricted to the application of Teamcenter's API's, Pro*E Metaphase Interface, Catia Metaphase Interface developed w.r.t. third party CAD authoring tools like Pro* E & CATIA respectively.
It also describes a walk through procedure right from creation of CAD data item to its vaulting to EBoM connectivity and other associated activities as under
Model versioning & vaulting
Conversion of native CAD models to lightweight neutral format ( JT )
Part & product Structure
Engineering Change Management for handling Design change
