    Workgroup PDM - Can I apply lifecycle retrospectively?

    John Wayman


      I have a system of 4 SW users, currently using SW2014. The data is stored in a vault using Workgroup PDM.

      There are around 9000 objects in the vault.

      The current system has no lifecycle management applied to it.

      I want to instigate a simple lifecycle management regime, something with 'In Work' and 'Released' levels.

      Is it possible to set up this lifecycle and apply it, retrospectively, to the existing objects?

      If so, how should I go about it?

      The documentation I have found seems to imply that one always starts with an empty database, but I can't, unfortunately.


      I look forward to your advice.
