Why do we need multiple FM servers?
If the physical location of your offices varies, you'll need to deploy a separate FM server there. Workspace members can use DFM to store and share files.
What is workflow in Agile PLM?
  1. An Agile PLM workflow is an automated sequence of statuses that a routable object follows as it goes through a company‘s change control process. When users create a routable object, they select a workflow from the list of workflows that are available for that routable object. A workflow can contain any number of statuses. Status names are editable, but their underlying status types are not. Only one status type, Pending, is required and this must be the first status in the workflow. Three status types—Submit, Review, and Released—may be used multiple times in a workflow, with unique names for each instance. Review and Released are the most versatile status types.
Each and every status in a workflow‘s status list comprises status properties and criteria specific properties.
Status properties define some specific actions that can be automatically triggered or manually performed—or both. Status properties determine what happens to the routable object when assigned people approve, reject, or even forget to review the routable object
Criteria-specific properties are defined by filters called reusable criteria, which are created separately and stored in the Criteria node. Each individual status may have many criteria specific properties. Criteria-specific properties describe specific actions that are triggered (automatically, or they can be manually performed) if the routable object meets the conditions defined in the reusable criteria while the routable object is entering or exiting a status. Criteria Specific properties apply to individual statuses, not to the workflow as a whole.
What is redlining in Agile PLM?
  1. Red lining highlights the changes made to an object in red during a change process. ECOs, MCOs, PCOs and SCOs are the only changes that have redlining functions.
You can redline BOM and AML data and attachments using an ECO. In addition, you can create change-controlled redline modifications to item attributes.
You can redline AML data using an MCO. In addition, you can create change-controlled redline modifications to item attributes.
You can redline site-specific BOM data and site-specific AML data using an SCO, but only against the latest released revision.
You can redline prices using a PCO. Using the redlining feature, you can publish the price to your customers. For example, if you have renegotiated the price of a particular item with your supplier and you want to publish the new price, you can redline the price and route it through a PCO.
You can redline an affected item by creating a change order, add an affected item in the affected item’s tab.Click on “Add”, search for an already existing object or create a new one.
Select the row, Redlines for objects will show up in the lower half of the screen. Click on “Edit”, change the already existing values for attributes or add new values to the attributes, add components to Bom etc and click on save.All the changes done will be highlighted in “Red”. We have three more buttons other than “Edit”; “Redlines Only”,”undo All Redlines” and “More”.If you want to see the redlines tab in more screen mode, click on “More” and select “Full Display Mode”. To see only Redlines, click on “Redlines Only” and to undo the redlines, click on ”undo All Redlines”. These buttons are only present in the “Title Block” tab of Redlines.
