Teamcenter PLM consultants extend the Teamcenter PLM Data Model via new business objects and properties. They also build a pick LOVs (List of Values) for their data. They perform these tasks by using BMIDE (Business Modeler Integrated Development Environment) client that is the modelling environment for Teamcenter PLM configurations. The BMIDE allows you to store all configurations in a container named as a template. Then you are free to deploy the template to any environment of Teamcenter PLM.
Types of LOV in Teamcenter PLM
Teamcenter PLM LOVs help in enduing regular data entry on Teamcenter business object properties. The list entries can be created in two ways. The first method is to reference existing data and the second id to enter custom site data in Teamcenter PLM. After the creation, the LOV can be implemented throughout the interface by attaching it via one or more business object properties. If you create and implement LOVS efficiently throughout Teamcenter PLM, it can enhance the productivity of your site and help in controlling incorrect user entries.
In BMIDE, the Extensions folder has a LOV directory. These three types of LOVs in BMIDE can be found.
- ClassicIt stores the LOVs in the template.BatchIt stores LOVs in the Teamcenter PLM database.DynamicIt reads the LOVs dynamically by adding queries to the PLM database. How to Create a Batch LOV in BMIDE?The Classic LOVs store the values in the BMIDE template. You can begin by starting the Business Modeler IDEYou can choose one of the following methods:First, you need to open the Menu Bar and then choose BMIDE and New Model Element. Then you should type Classic LOV in the Wizards Box and click on Next.The next step is to open the Extensions or LOV folders, right-clicking on the Classic LOV Folder and choosing New Classic LOV. When the New Classic LOV Wizards runs, you need to enter the necessary information in the Classic LOV dialog box and then click on Finish. How to Create a Classic LOV in BMIDE?

How to Create a Dynamic LOV in BMIDE?
Dynamic LOVs can show a list of values that are obtained dynamically b6y querying the Teamcenter PLM Database. For instance, if you need a cost of values of all the aluminum widgets in the database with a blue finish, you can easily create a dynamic LOV to query the relevant database for them. As the name denotes, these values are not static but keep on changing when there are changes in the data of a database. They let an end-user to select from the lists that are made up of data that is active in the database.
As a part of the dynamic LOV definition, anyone can create a Teamcenter PLM database query. Anyone can also query for Teamcenter product data from objects like parts, items, datasets, etc. Queries can also be created for administrative data from categories like roles, groups, users, etc. The LOV Values can also be filtered from the import LOV values that belong to an external system by using TC XML.
Here are sample dynamic queries for all the items which belonged to a specific BMIDE project.
When a user attaches the dynamic LOVs to a property and then installs a template to a server, the query results will be displayed as a list of values in the end-user interface.
LOV Definition Common Steps
LOVs are lists on property boxes that are in the Teamcenter PLM user interface.
