Possible client wants to have an idea on how fast they can access files from the server.
They have questions like: - Will they be able to load/open files as fast as opening it from their own machine (current practice)? - For quick loading of file, which needs to adjust? is it the server or the client?
Can you help me know what specific TCRS info should I give them?
Adding a layer of software will be slower than without. For instance, a lot of calls need to be made to the database just to determine if they have the correct permissions and are allowed before a "ticket" to retrieve the file is granted. It's a small price to pay for the control they get by using TcRS. Further, searching is faster and more reliable; they don't need to "fix" an assembly due to missing parts or broken links before they can reuse it for another product; they won't have so many duplicate parts; and the list goes on.
In other words, the small price they pay for accessing parts is heavily outweighed by the benefits. Overall, using TcRS is faster in their daily lives. Hope that makes sense.
