USAF Master Parts List (MPL) Migration to Teamcenter PLM
Using custom built ITK applications, this team was able to migrate 17 Million USAF Parts from within the Maintenance Parts List (MPL) section of the Illustrated Parts Breakdown (IPB) into Teamcenter PLM. The loader application consisted of using multiple concurrent threads and batch size optimization to acheive 1500+ parts per minute load times. A GUI interface was added on top of the underlying ITK C++ code in order to provide a friendlier user interface. This application was not only designed for initial bulk loading, but also included detailed business rules for sustainment loading as well.
