In our previous SOLIDWORKS blog, we discussed the Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of SOLIDWORKS World. But in this week's blog, we will continue discovering SOLIDWORKS Manage 2019 and I will be reviewing some of the snags that I have encountered with it along with giving you some tips on how to save more time and improve the program processing speed. We are bypassing system configuration for now to show how the dashboards are configured, due to customer special requests. But, we will circle back in our next blog to discuss the setup the change request process.
FROM Objects O
INNER JOIN ObjectTypes OT on OT.ObjectTypeId = O.ObjectType
WHERE OT.ObjectTypeName LIKE 'Processes'
order by O.SystemName
oj1._System_objNBS as 'ECR Number',
oj1.dateModified as 'Date',
oj1._System_ObjDescription as 'Description',
oj1._System_CurrentStage as 'Current Stage'
inner join obj113_VER oj1ver on oj1ver.idRecord = oj1.idRecord
inner join CheckedStatus cs on cs.StatusId = oj1.CheckedStatus
where oj1.deleted = 0
and (cs.StatusName like 'checked in' or cs.StatusName like 'checked out' or cs.StatusName like 'released')
order by oj1._System_objNBS
Looking at the BIG Picture
I recommend a simple 4-point strategy:
- Creators (Daily users) – Create content with high detail throughout Manage (engineers).
- Monitors (Daily users) – Work is assigned to these (owners) like change coordinators or configuration managers (depending on your organization). Check on status daily, connect with SMEs, maintain forward motion, make corrections/updates, add additional info, provide dwell time reports for resource allocation, etc.
- Monitors (On-demand users) – Primary function is approvals/rejections and resource allocation but can create as required, also maintains forward motion, etc. (management). This group requires lower detail in the interface.
- Viewers (Weekly inquiries) – Filtering a simplified interface, dashboards, reports. Very low detail and mostly graphical interface for Manage using drill-down Dashboards and reports.
