cFolder Structure

Hi all,

This is my first visit to this forum, just moved on one mySAP PLM implementation on cProject Suite 4.0 (still in Order Stage)

What could be the cFolder Structure? Can cFolder become permanent document/drawings storage area?

my view is cFolder should be temporary storage and after completing the NPD project, the necessary data should be moved to DMS..

Well, client is asking cFolder structure which is a mixture of BOM hierarchy of the product which they are developing and their departments. Will this structure be ok or may create problems in future for searching the documents/drgs?

Any comments and options awaited...

Thanks

Prashant

    Hello Prashant,

    Let me answer your questions one by one:

    1. You can maintain any type of structure in cFolders. You can create various objects like Folders, Documents, BOM, Data sheets etc.

    2. You can store the document/drawings permanently in cFolders provided you've sized the servers accordingly. However the usual practice is to store the documents elsewhere. The other storage options are:

    a) Content Server

    b) SAP DMS or

    c) Third Party storage system (eg FileNET etc)

    3. The BOM structure being asked by your client shouldn't be a problem if you have installed the TREX search Engine.

    Regards

    Deepak
