How to customize Windchill?
  • Windchill is a three-tier JAVA Runtime Architecture that can be customized in many ways to meet your customization requirements in addition to the existing Out Of The Box (OOTB) functionality. There are basically two ways to customize Windchill based on the level of complexity of your customization.
  • Lightweight Customization
  • Heavyweight Customization

Windchill Lightweight Customization
  • Adding Windchill Soft Types.
  • Adding Soft Attributes.
  • Changing the look and feel of the existing user interface.
  • Text tailoring by altering resource bundle files (i.e. list of selectable values)
  • Modifying or automating business logic in workflows.
  • As Out-Of-The-Box (OOTB) features in Windchill there are existing tools that support Windchill lightweight customization.

If these tools can not meet customization requirements, you may need to use Windchill heavyweight customization.

Windchill Heavyweight Customization
  • Heavyweight customization applies when lightweight customization cannot meet your requirements. Some examples,
  • To create a new user interface.
  • To add object extensions to the existing data model
  • To add new Windchill services.
  • To create a new object in the data model.
  • Complex workflow may involve advanced functionality that requires heavyweight customization such as calling Info*Engine tasks from the workflow to perform data manipulation logic on Windchill objects.

While most of the Lightweight customization can be done by using the OOTB mentioned above, heavyweight customization involves use of client and server technologies, require extensive Windchill API knowledge, and solid software development skills for a person to effectively perform the customization.

Lightweight customization are supported by the OOTB utilities, supported by PTC Technical Support, and thus are typically carried over during MOR(i.e. maintenance only release or “patch”) installs or point release upgrades. Heavyweight customizations are not supported by PTC Technical Support, and may or may not carry over during MOR installs or point release upgrades.
