Room: 201

Description:

Continental Tire RnD handles their main PDM/PLM data with Teamcenter since years.
Our Teamcenter is heavily customized (ITK+RAC) and makes intensive use to hook into workflow handlers and legacy/new Audit Manager amongst others. This presentation will show common and specific challenges we successfully handled while upgrading from TC8.3 to TC10 to custom TC11.2.2.1_a01_patch_1.

Especially the Audit Manager and the Workflow Manager engine have been target of bigger changes in terms of data model, customization API, configuration and also Look & Feel for end user, which needs special treatment.

TC11 is now so much more 'picky' in terms of workflow control and access management, which used to be much less strict in TC8. Thus it's customization and normal 'just' configuration (Workflow+BMIDE) needs special adaptation, I like to share.

Also the TC standard upgrade process will NOT properly upgrade all data model changes or workflow handlers immediately and needs unexpected manual care, which caused in our case initially some unexpected strange effects.

For Audit Manager, where we successfully leveraged the type=3 new AuditManager from previous legacy  AuditManager (type=2) to have our customization, writing and reading to audits having support of both audit types at the same time, which is not possible by COTS.

Basically I woud prefer to share and gather our common user group's experiences you like to share in addition for these special focus topics; as we basically wer hit the most durign our upgrade project.

If time and interest allows, we also can dive deeper into cutomization, or also the other topcis we were faced with, such as moving to SOA calls, etc. or leveraging SPLM communication with an so called accouont champion to have direct channel to SPLM development nd align the upgrade and SPLM patch time plans.
