PLM administration? Learn from people or pdf’s?

I had the pleasure of talking to Senthil Kumar Venkatachalam, MCAD & ECAD System Administrator at Cisco about challenges in working with complex multi-vendor CAD and PLM environments.

Madhavi: It is my pleasure to talk to you. Can you please tell us more about yourself?

Senthil:  I have spent over 14 years in CAD and PLM domains focused mostly on the Windchill. I have had the opportunity to work with numerous CAD softwares such as Pro/ENGINEER, Creo, NX, SolidWorks as well as PDM/PLM softwares such as Windchill, TeamCenter, Agile, etc. I’m very passionate about solving issues and ensuring that my users are productive with the tools and technologies that they use on a daily basis.

Willing to pay $999.99 for tuning app?

Willing to pay $999.99 for tuning app?

By Preeti Gupta, Novartis

No, I’m not talking about music, tuning, or the Reyburn CyberTuner tuning software tool on the appstore here. This post is all about tuning Oracle for PTC Windchill and this should be music to the ears of Windchill Administrators… Beside, you get to keep $999.99 and take away these FREE tips to improve Windchill performance. Sounds good?

Well, in my last post here, I covered the need and the key considerations for tuning PTC Windchill and as well as the databases before going into production.

Periodic tables, Cocktails and Performance

Periodic tables, Cocktails and Performance

No!! In this post, we are not talking either about cocktails or periodic tables but certainly about performance. And, specifically about improving Windchill performance by fine tuning the tables.

In my previous blog here, I wrote about adjusting Oracle parameters for improving performance in the Windchill context. That’s the bare minimum one could do with limited time and knowledge about databases.

Here comes the fun and advanced stuff about fine tuning Oracle for improved performance.Note that the following Oracle recommendations must be executed only by an experienced DBA.  Caution: Although Windchill administrators may be very interested in tracking the health of Windchill database it’s highly recommend that you consult a DBA to perform the below steps.

PTC Windchill

Static or Dynamic Views? You choose…

You don’t need a window for these views… Paris-based design company Technicon Designrecently won an award for their IXION Windowless Jet Concept. The idea is to provide a 360-degree view using cameras mounted on the plane’s exterior to capture the scenery and then project that on high-res screen on the interior cabin walls and ceiling.

How does 85% gain in performance sound to you? Music to your ears?

We are not discussing about performances, sticks, bows in the world of music. This is a guest from Preeti Gupta at Novartis and  she shares about some aspects of Windchill performance tuning. This is first post in a series on this topic…

In this blog post, I, Preeti would like to cover some of my experiences in fine-tuning Enterprise applications. Over the last 12 years, I have had the opportunity to tune PTC Windchill application and databases. The PLM user base ranged from 400 users to 1100+ users.

Heard this before? “Oracle is running just fine, it’s an issue with Windchill…”

I remember vividly when Alcon first went live with Windchill 8.0 (Migrated from Intralink 3.4 back in 2007). We spent more than a month trying to tune all Windchill application components, Apache, Tomcat and Windchill application server. We tried to tune every aspect of client and application tier but left  Oracle tuning thinking that the DBAs would take care of it! But that’s not the case everywhere, they used to give me an answer which was kind of black box to me “Yes Oracle is running just fine, it is an issue with Windchill”. That’s it. Now what?  Read More

  2. Working with 2D Drawings
  3. Comparing dataset
  4. Organizing and viewing  data types (Word, Excel, PDF)
  5. Integrating MCAD-ECAD information
