"It just makes sense"

What do you like best?

Compared to other design software, Creo is intuitive. Having used PTC since early 2000's Pro/E days, (with a period of using CATIA V5 in that timeframe) - this software is engineer friendly. It's built in such a way that it has ALWAYS had 3D solid modeling functionality, that was easy to translate into 2D drawings. The look is sharp and not cartoonish, its easy to setup to minimize eyestrain, and every iteration has given us big feature improvements.

What do you dislike?

I really wish there was a simpler way to program layouts. A strong understanding of programming language theory is required to use and be good at making this functionality work for us, which limits the users who can modify layouts, and further limits who create layouts as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

PTC has excellent training through PTC University. It is the only software that fully backs itself up with comprehensive useful training and excellent support. There is no point to taking Creo Training that isn't through PTC University - and training can be customized based on how the company customizes their implementation of Creo.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This software is ideal in my mind for use in the bearing industry. For our product portfolio, the native design theory jut makes sense. Benefits include creation of layouts and parametric models, which speeds design work due to ability to create great start parts and layouts to build whatever we need.

"I am a PLM Consultant"

What do you like best?

The interaction with Creo with PLM (Windchill) is awesome. As creo and Windchill are both native tools of PTC. It has improved a lot overtime with many enhancements being implemented which came as a request from many end users as ideas/enhancement request . The previous version of creo has some issues with family tables, even that has been solved in the latest versions.

What do you dislike?

I do not have any negative points on Creo PLM.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has developed a functionality that using Creo you can connect Windchill and pull CAD models available inside Windchill server.It also gives a interacting UI embedded inside creo which allows users to push their CAD models inside windchill server and also create virtual parts named as WTPart (Windchill terminology parts) . Which helps during the integration with ERP in maintaining the BOM.

"Sr. Design Engineer"

What do you like best?

Windchill is best suitable for proper documentation, revision control, access control. The best part is how ProE files are well connected with PLM and easy to access.

What do you dislike?

Its a history that the PTC products are robust but they are never user friendly. It takes lot of time to understand the process of using any of PTC software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work as a design and manufacturing engineer. And we face product changes very frequently. Windchill as a PLM software gives us complete control on the life cycle of the product.

"Ease of use is the biggest strength"

What do you like best?

Ease of use on CREO product lifecycle management system its best feature. Users do't require training, they use the tool like a google search and find what they need.

Another great thing about CREO how it handles revision control. It allows BOMs and attachments to be archived by revision which allows us to keep a history that is easily accessible.

The manufacturer association to the part master is the best I've seen, We like being just one click away from the manufacturer screen on the part that shows the manufacturer name, part number and environmental status.

Also, with some very little training super-users can configure the system. Of course, you need IT for mappings, but many of the tasks can be done by the users.

What do you dislike?

The Product & Governance module in CREO needs to be improved to allow multiple specifications to be applied without make the Overall compliance "non-compliant".

Another challenge with the tool is the difference between the client application and the web application. While PTC has made great strides over the years there is a disparity in performance and functionality between the apps.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a great system for the money. Try to use it out of the box as much as possible. While add-ons and customizations are tempting, they make upgrades difficult.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We solve the following with CREO product lifecycle management:

- Revision Control

- Archival of attachments

- Routing for approvals

- Historical tracking (accountability)
