We house all of our procedures, work instructions, and drawings in Windchill. This system allows us to revise and version and to ensure employees have access to the current and all previous versions. We assign the business instruction documents via our Cornerstone LMS and link to the document in PTC Windchill.
  • Version history. Able to easily see current and previous revs and the history of each.
  • User interface. Easy to use.
  • Change notices.
  • Check in/out documents.
  • Search could be improved. Clears out each after each search instance.
  • Search logic could be improved. Have to navigate through lots of records and not in order of rev.
PTC Windchill is a great system for a larger manufacturing organization. It's a centralized information warehouse.
  • Document management.
  • Version history.
  • Saves time as all of our drawings and business instructions and procedures are housed in a central location with check-in/out capability and version control.

PTC Windchill is a product lifecycle management tool used by manufacturing. It can be accessed through Internet anywhere and anytime. Basically, it includes entire data related to products such as drawings, CAD, Testing results phase-wise from Proto Level to Mass Production. It also includes design to change records and change management from development to the mass production phase. In addition to it, it integrates well with other CAD software such as Autocad, Creo, NX, Solidworks, CATIA V5, etc.
  • It is compatible with all devices and operating systems such as web-based, Android, and iOS.
  • It allows user to customize its interface based on their requirement.
  • It provides a digital part list with all required data like Part Name, Part No., Weight, Material, etc.
  • Searching data is so facile that one can get data without any trouble.
  • The price for PTC PLM premium is comparatively high in contrast to other Product life cycle management solutions.
  • Customer support services need to improve as they take a lot of time to resolve the issue.
  • WT parts need to be create for all the parts to create windchill BOM.
It provides in-depth product information such as Technical Data, CAD model, 2D drawing, ECR document, ECN document. Integration between windchill and creo is seamless. In addition to it, it provides necessary tools for data transfer, distribution, reviewing, and publishing of product data. Moreover, one can manage the complete product life cycle just on the web.

Windchill is the the software that we use for product lifecycle management. I am using this software for BOM Creation, Check in and check out of data and cloud storage for all design related documents. This software is being used by other departments to finalize make or buy and cost management also. It helps us to do ECR and ECN very smoothly.
  • VIEW PARTLIST.
  • ECN and ECR.
  • Design data storage and smooth access.
  • Workspace management.
  • Assy structure making.
  • Extract partlist should be directly in Excel because everyone time we have to convert it to Excel.
  • ECN report formatting need improvement.
  • Many times part no doesn't go to ERP even after ERP released state.
While doing Engineering change it suits the best and saves all the time and even you can conduct CFT meeting while doing ECN. You can easily attach all supporting documents for future reference. For big assy while extracting partlist it is very difficult to understand structure of assy so it can be more eye catching and easy to understand type partlist.
  • ECR and ECN.
  • Cloud data storage for design documents.
  • Integration with CREO.
  • It saves a lot more time and increases efficiency of team so it justifies its investment.
It has wonderful features and excellent customised facilities. It has wonderful integration with CREO and ERP. These features make this software my choice.

Our organization is using PTC Windchill as a PLM software. We are using windchill for many purposes like part creation, BOM creation, check in/check out of CAD data, document management, check in/check out 2D data, releasing of part numbers into ERP by using windchill, Engineering Change creation & release.
  • Part Number Creation, BOM Creation
  • Engineering Change Notices
  • Release of part numbers in to ERP system
  • check in/check out of CAD & 2D data
  • Document control & management
  • Data synchronization with off-server data can be difficult in several cases.
  • It's okay if the WT section and the drawing are distinct, but it shouldn't be there.
PTC Windchill can assist companies with controlling their product development. By giving manufacturers with all of the tools they need, this product lifecycle management software makes it simple for them to transmit, distribute, visualize, and publish product data. PTC Windchill is used by a variety of sectors to streamline the product development process.
  • Part Creation/BOM creation.
  • Engineering Change Notice
  • Document Control & Management
  • Increase in productivity

  • You can connect all areas of your company to a single source data system.
  • It can be difficult to integrate old data
  • The user experience can be simplified
For larger companies that have multiple locations, it is a great tool to control the data and to get the data in the hands of the right people. If I was a startup or a smaller company, I would not use this based on the fact that most of the functionality wouldn't be used.
  • Time to implement
  • Data migration
  • Training of the users
