ThingWorx Navigate is a suite of task- and role-based apps to give more stakeholders across an organization easy access to view PLM data stored in Windchill and data in other enterprise systems. Get to know the product uses, functionalities, and out-of-the-box and custom options.

ThingWorx Navigate enables stakeholders throughout the organization to easily access the rich data stored within the organization’s enterprise system – no training required. With out-of-the-box (OOTB) role and task-based apps that provide contextualized information as well as the ability to easily customize apps to meet organizational needs, ThingWorx Navigate helps users spend less time searching for data and more time doing what they do best: developing, manufacturing, selling, and supporting world class products.

ThingWorx Navigate gives non-experts quick and easy access to PLM data such as drawings, documents, process plans, and change requests and notices. People in manufacturing, procurement, service, sales and marketing, and engineering can view real-time, accurate PLM content on a simple, job-specific interface. Different use cases can help organizations increase collaboration, solve operational challenges, and reach goals for product reliability, safety, on-time delivery, and innovation.

1. View apps

Apps that allow users to view up-to-date product information (like parts lists or product drawings), but will not have editing permissions

The role of the user is tied to what data users can access and what type of changes they need to make
