Third-party tools for classification ? (e.g. BCT aClass)

Experimenter
Experimenter

We currently have more than 4000 articles classified.

 

We are looking for some tool that could improve classification management (e.g. modify same attribute at once amongst several instances, manage instance creation from part families, etc.)

 

Does anyone use the third-party module BCT aClass ? We are interested in having your opinion about that product.

 

Are there other tools available ?

 

Thanks in advance

With BCT aClass you can
.. edit multiple instances at once.
.. syncronize part family members automatically to classification, including attribut mapping between NX and classification.
.. create part family members as new variants (Teamcenter items).

Please let me know if you need additional information for BCT aClass!
I am working as Product Manager for BCT Software.

Best regards,

Hi Thomas,

Thanks for the chance to communicate with a BCT responsible...

The company I am working for uses
- Teamcenter
- NX
- BCT aClass
- Microsoft AX

We are not that sure about identifying preferred parts in TC. Do we have to use an extra attribute/column in the part families we created in NX?

Best regards, Peter Lemke

Hi Peter,

 

the usability status can be set on the instance (classification object itself) or be read or written from an item or revision property provided that write access is available.

I suggest to use an item or revision property therefore.

In order to have this information available also in the part family as seperate column you can map this Teamcenter property to NX.

You will find some details how to setup usibility status in BCT aClass and Teamcenter in the configuration guide of BCT aClass.

This guide can be found in the installation directory of BCT aClass > bct_help.

 

Please let me know whether you need anything else.

You can also contact our support team for help!
