Validation Configuration Wizard

Validation Configuration Wizard

Use the Validation Framework configuration wizard to quickly and easily create check rules.

Even unexperienced users can use the assistant to easily define validation checks for their area and even immediately use them.

Using the configuration assistant, you can create complex check rules within a few minutes. The direct access to Teamcenter objects and attributes is a practical support when creating your validation rules.

Whether user or administrator, all options are available via the interface. From the selection of the object types to the selection of the attributes and the definition of interlinked tests, the creation of check rules is also possible without a long training. Even complex dependencies can also be easily defined. The configuration of bill of material checks or the classification can be done without any deep knowledg of the Teamcenter data model.


  Configuration via wizard using Teamcenter Rich Client

Thanks to the wizard being embedded in the Teamcenter environment, all information from the data model is available. This means that even unexperienced users can use an assistant to define the validations for their area and even immediately use them.

CNO Validation Framework 5.0

CNO Validation Framework 4.3

Our new version of the CNO data validation solution is now available.

We want to simplify with our new version your deployment of our solutions by providing a release with long term support. This will be parallel maintained and developed to our new versions for at least the next three years.


Longterm Support
You can get bug fixes of your V4 CNO Validation Framework for the currently supported versions. In addition this will make it very easy to patch your existing version without a downtime (dependent on your infrastructure).


Stylesheet configuration simplifications
This new release is simplifying the usage of validation in the Active Workspace Summary and Information Stylesheet. Keep in mind that this capability allows you to display a quality overview to the user without a click.

 The usage of extension also works on Stylesheets of creation, of save as and of revise.

CNO Validation Stylesheet Options


Enhanced external data source integration
Even if your Teamcenter is the so called single source of truth, a typically scenario is that you have several data sources and depending on context, the reference database changes.

External data validation


BOM compare
It is now possible to expand more than one BOM view. As result, you have the capability to compare two different BOM views of one product structure. Goal is ex. to compare the Engineering BOM with the Manufacturing BOM and easily identify missing components.


Check rule improvements
You will also find various enhancements in our core validation module.

This is just an extract, please contact us for detailed information:

  • Enhancements for object scope with count and existence check
  • Validation of other BOM types
  • Sort Criteria for next and previous Rev
  • Simplified usage of related objects

CNO BOM and Revision Compare

CNO BOM and Revision Compare

CNO BOM Compare is the solution to identify changes fast and reliable.

Even small changes become increasingly complex and require an accurate examination and traceability. So it is mostly absolutely mandatory to identify and log all changes without high effort.

CNO BOM and Revision Compare is an extension for Teamcenter which allows to load multiple assemblies in Excel to compare them directly without complicated intermediate steps. An alignment of the complete structure to any depth and detailing can be done easily.


Sample: Bill of material compare using Microsoft Excel

We offer with our solution the opportunity for:

  • Quick comparisons with previous versions or other assemblies
  • A very simple and reliable creation of an complete list of modifications
  • The option to automate and optimize the follow-up processes


CNO Validation Framework 5.0

CNO Validation Framework 4.2

Our new version of the CNO data validation solution is now available.

In our new version, the AutoFill style sheet extension is a perfect complement to automatically fill data in Teamcenter based on your business rules. In addition, there are some minor enhancements in the area of configuration and improvements in Active Workspace integration.

AutoFill Extension for Active Workspace StyleSheets
CNO AutoFill is a solution for automatically completing data based on your business rules. This makes it a practical and time-saving extension for Teamcenter.

Optimization of Post-Actions
Enhanced functionality for automated postprocessing depending on the result of the checks.

This action can be used not only for the objects that are actually checked, but also for individual components or linked parts.


  • Action is triggered only for certain base objects
  • Action is triggered only on defined child objects
  • Action is triggered for base objects and subordinate objects
  • Action is triggered on linked objects


Improved Check Rule Selection
In addition to the direct use of available validation rules, object criteria for the visibility of validation rules in RichClient or Active Workspace can optionally be defined now via a dataset.



Expansion and Check Features

  • Wizard for expansion configuration
  • Optimization to use where-used functionalities
  • Support BOM validation with different revision rules
  • Direct access for checks on information from third-party systems
  • Simplified calculation and existence checks


NX Integration
Integration of AdHoc-Validation in NX or SolidEdge.

Support new Teamcenter Versions

  • Teamcenter 12.2
  • Active Workspace 4.2
