Agile PLM users face immense difficulty in creating records. This is because, each record can contain hundreds of fields that can vary based on business unit, product line, or other factors. Writing custom codes requires users to have an expert developer and coding skills. Also, there are frequent upgrade and performance issues, maintenance costs, and recurring downtime while record creation. These issues can disturb the workflow and drive down productivity and growth. These challenges and the need for more productivity motivated Xavor to develop a solution, ‘UI Wizard,’ that allows users to simplify the record creation and customization process.

Users also don’t have to write a single line of code during record creation.

What Is UI Wizard?

Xavor’s UI Wizard for Agile PLM simplifies record creation and management for users by guiding them through a set of relevant questions and automating the creation of records. It also empowers users to navigate through the complexities by reducing time to define templates and providing a tab to autofill attributes.

Customizations require only a couple of days and no additional developer skills. So, this unique record creation and customization tool significantly reduces your upgrade and maintenance costs.

Key Features

The deployment of Xavor’s UI Wizard for Agile PLM only takes a couple of hours. Along with a single day of admin training, it also supports all browsers. The best part about this tool is that it also works with all 9.3 versions, product support, and upgrades. Its key features include:

  • Captures required data for creating any record in Agile PLM
  • Guides the data flow for creation of multiple records

Avoiding errors while creating records is an arduous task for Agile users. UI Wizard enables users to minimize errors by validating data in real time. It also halts the next step until the correct data is entered.
