PTC Windchill Interference Management Service

Detect, manage and report interferences in heterogeneous CAD products.

If not identified early in the design process, clashes or interferences that occur between components can frequently result in re-work and additional cost, and extended a product’s time-to-market.

PTC Windchill Interference Management Services automatically identifies and tracks design clash issues while still in a digital mockup environment, thus allowing you to quickly validate configurations and resolve any problems.

Features and Benefits

  • Flexible analysis parameters – User defined parameters including tolerance values on the interference check
  • Automated job queuing and execution – Interference jobs submitted to the system are automatically queued and passed to an available “interference worker”
  • Dynamic groups – Search groups and dynamic groups enable the automatic population and creation of component and assembly groupings on the basis of meta-data or product structure hierarchy
  • Scalable architecture – A flexible environment that includes the use of “Interference Workers” which are separate to, but communicate with, the PTC Windchill server
