Tip Tuesday: Picklist Management in Fusion Lifecycle
I’m putting the final touches on my #AU2017 class: MFG125717 – The Anatomy of Fusion Lifecycle, and was reminded of an old but very useful tip (and one that I’ve seen people get when they first start implementing their PLM solution). A best practice when it comes to pick lists is to reuse them in multiple workspaces (this means you won’t have multiple copies of similar lists to maintain). There’s a ‘gotcha’ though – make sure that altering a pick list wont’ have unintended consequences for others. As an admin, what I like to do is see where else that pick list is in use and confirm with the core team that adding a new value (or taking one away!) won’t be an issue. In the Pick-list Manager you can easily see where a particular pick list is used:
Be sure to review pick list usage before making any changes.
If you’re going to Autodesk University next week, be sure to say ‘hi’! I’ll be hanging out at the Answer Bar Tuesday afternoon for some in person PLM Talk!!
