Whether you’re reading this proactively, or looking into workspace issues for performance or stability, I’ll lay out some recommendations on how to leverage the workspace within Windchill more effectively.
What Makes a Workspace?
What is a workspace within Windchill, really? It is a tabular view of new and existing data that is applicable to the focused task you have on your To-Do list. It replaces the ‘Working Directory’ when connected to Windchill. Most often, though, it is used to create and modify CAD data with Creo Parametric or other supported CAD applications via Workgroup Manager (WGM). The workspace can also be used to manipulate Enterprise Parts and other objects within Windchill.
