It doesn’t take a huge corporation to amass large design data archives. With the pace of product development today, just a few engineers can quickly create gigabytes of design data. It's easy for files to get lost or misplaced.
SolidWorks Workgroup PDM provides a simplified set of data management features, making it a good way to get your feet wet with PDM.
A real solution
The common data management “solution” of storing data in flat files on local hard drives is no solution at all. It increases the amount of time you spend looking for files and the chance of accidentally overwriting or corrupting data.
Easy to use
SolidWorks Workgroup PDM is easy to implement and manage—perfect for individuals and small work groups. A SolidWorks Workgroup PDM license is included with each SolidWorks Professional and Premium® license.
Everything in its right place
Workgroup PDM helps individuals and small work groups control file revisions and manage project data securely and efficiently with little or no IT support. It consolidates design data in a secure central repository (or vault) where advanced search functions let you quickly retrieve files by name, date and version. Automatic version control protects data from overwriting.
Key functions include:
- securing access to engineering data
- facilitating design re-use
- enabling a workgroup design environment
- automating revision control
- reducing time spent organizing and tracking design data
- providing rapid ROI with limited IT support
