What's New in SOLIDWORKS PDM 2018
SOLIDWORKS PDM 2018 introduces new capabilities for branching and merging parallel design paths, synchronizing revision schemes with SOLIDWORKS revision tables and more. These new enhancments allow engineering teams large and small to collaborate seamlessly and manage complex engineering CAD data with ease.
SOLIDWORKS PDM (PDM) is a full-featured data management solution for organizations large and small. It lets you find and repurpose files, parts and drawings, share design information, automate workflows, and ensure manufacturing always has the right version.
With the incredible advantage of being based on Microsoft SQL Server, PDM has enormous flexibility in how it can be configured. From simple revision management and search all the way to full blown engineering change control and companywide document management, PDM can be what you want it to be.
Conventional wisdom dictates that a system with this much flexibility would be incredibly difficult to configure and integrate into your company, however the exact opposite is true with PDM. Hawk Ridge Systems can have PDM installed, configured and running at your site in as little as 1 day.
Easy-to-implement SOLIDWORKS PDM software provides a comprehensive set of intuitive product data management solutions that keep you focused on designing better products, instead of searching for data. A range of capabilities help you quickly and efficiently manage your data files and documentation to maximize productivity and improve product quality.
Manage & Control with EaseWith File Management, managing and controlling all your product development data has never been easier.
Easy Design ReuseQuickly locate and reuse existing design data to save time and control costs.
Keep Track of RevisionsTrack design changes and avoid the errors of manual approaches.
Quick Design ApprovalReduce the time to complete your design approval and engineering change order (ECO) processes.
Manage Your BOMsMaintain, manipulate, and leverage Bill of Materials (BOM) information to support downstream applications and systems.
Ensure Regulatory ComplianceFacilitate compliance with government regulatory requirements and industry standards.
Distributed CollaborationCollaborate throughout your organization while keeping people connected, current, and working on the same set of data.
Enterprise ScalabilityConnect the design data needs of your entire enterprise.
SOLIDWORKS PDM Datasheet
SOLIDWORKS PDM is a collaboration platform that combines a highly scalable data repository with a suite of information management tools in a single, easy-to-implement solution. It enables information sharing among internal staff, partners, and vendors, while automatically protecting data with integrated tracking and version control.
Benefits of SOLIDWORKS PDM
Adoption of a new system can be a difficult task – however, PDM relieves that burden by providing users with a familiar, easy to learn windows explorer interface. Files can be opened or saved in PDM by using the command in the program you are working with. To browse for a file, you can simply open Windows Explorer and browse your local computer or use the built in searching interface to find files even faster. By eliminating the need to learn a separate interface, the user adoption time is greatly decreased.
Automate Business Processes
With PDM you have the flexibility to map your own processes into the system. By creating the step-by-step workflows you wish users to follow, you ensure a controlled, repeatable environment with less risk for human error. In addition, the workflows in PDM can automate the creation of PDF documents, electronic signatures, email notifications and more.
Centralized Data Storage
By storing all your data in one, centralized vault, you are assured that everyone in your company always has access to the most current information, even if they are in different offices. This single storage will dramatically increase your engineering departments efficiency by making it easy to find and reuse existing data. PDM also controls more than just SOLIDWORKS documents – so if other departments in your company are looking for a secure, easy to use vaulting solution, you can easily open up the PDM vault to them.
