TD159 - Refactoring Wonky Windchill Workflows

Is the logic in your workflows wild and unruly? Do small enhancements lead to hours of regression testing? Well, here is good news! This presentation will showcase how Newell Brands (NWL) has created an event-based process dispatcher for Windchill workflows. The functionality was implemented to minimize logic complexity within a standard "workflow backbone" while providing hooks to enable process variation to support specific business needs. This technology is currently in production and supporting the various brands in the Newell Brands (NWL) portfolio.
