during the last XStep-Café session the question was brought up why there is no separate forum for topics like:
- PI Sheet
- Work In struction Sheet
What do you think? Would you prefer that these topics are discussed in SCM-PP or should there be such a new forum section? How should it be named?
The number of queries on PI sheet and related areas are very less. Even if we post one, chances of getting noticed/exposed to the related community is very slim because of the volume of calls in PP.
In my opinion we need to channel them out from the main stream PP to get enough attention and focus.
Hope we get there!!.
I agree that the response to postings of PI Sheet or other specific PI functionalitiies are rather poor; but... I don't know if having a separate forum would help us, as the root cause seems to be the lack of expertise/knowledge/experience about these topics.
However, it would add some visibility to these posting so perhaps it worths a try !
Now that many people have requested to have a separate forum, let's create a new forum focussing on PP-PI in general to discuss and share all subjects related to PP-PI master data, control recipes, PI sheets, process message, XSteps and Interfaces.
Please let me know if you have one already otherwise I will create one this week.
Yes, i do agree on this.The PI Sheet functionality and XStep is being widely used by many clients.This is the time where we need to serve the customer in time.The new forum will help us to gain more knowledge and experience, and basically help consultants to drive towards customer needs.
I concur that there is a need for such a subforum (and meanwhile I would like to draw attention to my own question here: automated PI sheet printout - please assist which ended up on page 4 after less than one day)
thank you for your many positve replies. It seems that the creation of a new sub-topic is hard te get approved by the SDN responsibles. However I have created an own blog on this topic with a lot of useful information. There is no real forum functionality yet but I might add that in the future:

PP-PI is a part of PP. And is a small part of PP so in my opinion is is not necessary to have a separate section for PI. Also there are a lots of common queries which is for PP, PP-PI & REM so it will only lead to duplication of the data.
But yeah Arne is doing a great job by making a new separate website for PP-PI.
