PDM stands for Product Data Management.
PDM is a secure data vault for all your CAD and design process information. A fully configurable environment, SOLIDWORKS PDM enables your teams to securely store design files and related data for fast retrieval. Eliminate concerns over version control and data loss and collaborate on designs across multiple locations with SOLIDWORKS PDM.
Installation, process configuration, data migration, and user training… Implementing a data management tool into your company can seem like a daunting task.
Fortunately, the expert PDM Implementation team at GoEngineer is here to help. Learn about our proven process that ensures your SOLIDWORKS PDM system is set up right the first time.
Managing changes to engineering designs is a necessary evil that we can't escape. SOLIDWORKS PDM provides the tools to tie true Revisioning into processes, and the ability to track the history of those changes throughout the life of a part or assembly. Having Revisions tied into PDM workflows takes a big portion of the management off the user and lets the system keep track of things.
The days of being able to talk around a cubicle wall are few and far between. Today's world requires quick and efficient electronic communication that can reach people who aren't even in the office. PDM Workflows can be built to mimic engineering processes, and the built-in notification system can notify the right people (at the right time) to ensure that designs and/or documents keep moving through the process.
Parallel efforts will always yield faster results than serial tasks. SOLIDWORKS PDM facilitates parallel design efforts by allowing multiple designers to work on different components of the same top-level assembly at the same time. Updates can be checked in and designers can see each others changes quickly and easily.
We live in a mobile world, and it isn't always convenient to get to a desktop computer and access your engineering files. SOLIDWORKS PDM Web2 program gives us the ability to work in our PDM vault through a web browser. This on-the-go capability lets us see and review files and move them through workflows without a desktop client. Your suppliers can also be granted access directly to your CAD files without having PDM installed - anywhere in the world!
We all love the green Windows search bar that gives us time to grab a cup of coffee while it searches for our files (and never finds them), right? Not so much. SOLIDWORKS PDM leverages the power of Microsoft SQL Databases to organize information about our files and give us accurate search results - lightning fast. With SOLIDWORKS PDM, you're no longer handcuffed to search just by filename. Any attribute set up within PDM such as Part Number, Description, or Material can be searched with a high degree of precision and speed.
"That guy doesn't even work here anymore, why is SOLIDWORKS looking for a file on his desktop?!" Sound familiar or similar to an error you've experienced before? With SOLIDWORKS PDM these types of reference issues are a thing of the past. SOLIDWORKS PDM manages your file references and parent/child relationships for you, so it no longer matters if you move a file to a new folder or rename it outside of SOLIDWORKS. PDM knows the changes you made and ensures things stay intact.
Is your CAD folder structure out-of-hand? User and Group permissions in SOLIDWORKS PDM can determine who can make new folders, where they can make them, and what they can put in them. Additionally, PDM Templates can be used to generate standard sets of folders for each new project and ensure compliance to a defined structure.
Sometimes with a released product design an engineer may want to explore new concept ideas but may not want to work on the released design. With the Branch and Merge capabilites in PDM Professional designers can branch from an existing design then later choose to merge that back into the parent as a new version or choose to keep it as a seperate design that can follow it's own path in PDM.
