As with many collaboration tools, notifications are helpful, but they are not a substitute for interactive dialog between team members. Promoting and facilitating interaction between Engineering, Manufacturing, Purchasing and Quality departments improves the entire team’s understanding of the design, manufacturing processes and quality requirements critical to success. Learn how HawkWare’s TEAMWorks Professional can help you take your collaboration efforts to new level of productivity. See how you can optimize your departmental communications around your valuable IP managed in SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional.
See how the HawkWare team's latest version of Custom Notifications for SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional will help reduce your notification fatigue. If your vault documents follow the same general workflow, but have a wide range of people who may need to approve or review them, then this add-in is your answer. Join Product Manager, Chris Cook, to get the inside scoop on HawkWare’s PDM Custom Notifications tool.
Building BOMs in CAD and PDM can be fairly easy, to a point. But some BOM data doesn't come from applications or files that are easy to integrate into the CAD BOMs. Come join us to see how a new add-in for SOLIDWORKS PDM greatly enhances your BOM management in PDM. We will look at new ways to create, merge, edit, sort and export Bills of Materials, so Manufacturing and Operations, or ERP can have a BOM built for them.
Take a peek as we introduce TeamWorks Pro for SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional. TeamWorks Pro is a flexible project management solution for your entire engineering team. Creating tasks, updating projects, and tracking time has never been easier. We'll walk through the features, dashboards, and discuss how TeamWorks Pro could be used to track your ECO process.
CustomTools is a collection of utilities that automates many of the daily tasks in SOLIDWORKS, including batch printing, custom property management, and file naming. We want to help you make the most of these tools so that you can avoid repetitive tasks that slow down your day and keep you from the important stuff – like designing. Join HawkWare guru Chris Cook for a free training webinar to get started.
The SOLIDWORK PDM Professional serial numbers are great tools for generating unique identifiers for your vault documents. The card defaults can even apply these automatically any time a new document is added to the vault. But sometimes we like to work with descriptive names while we brainstorm through various design ideas. Only when we have finalized the design path and determined which documents are destined for full development do we want to generate a number for them. Does this sound like your Design or Engineering process? Then this add-in may be your answer. Take a couple minutes and watch the video to see if it does what you need.
The SOLIDWORK PDM Professional workflows are powerful process tools, ensuring proper revision updates, security and access control, as well as automating the export of deliverables like PDFs. But sometimes you need a little more control over how the referenced components move through those workflows. We have often been asked how to ensure that a parent assembly is not approved or released if any of its child components are still being worked on, or haven’t been approved. There are also the Library components that often stay in a different workflow that need accounted for. If these questions are familiar to you we may have the answers you are looking for. Our Transition Blocker add-in allows you to set a standard message when these transition violations occur, as well as prevent it from happening. You can also set certain states to be ignored (like your Library) so they don’t prevent an otherwise legitimate approval.
HawkWare is a suite of applications developed by Hawk Ridge Systems to augment and automate common tasks faced by the SOLIDWORKS and SOLIDWORKS PDM user community in their daily activities. Learn how HawkWare tools save you time every day that you design, and how many of the top enhancement requests for SOLIDWORKS are addressed by HawkWare applications - including the #2 enhancement request this year at SOLIDWORKS World 2014, rename component inside assembly. Many of the HawkWare applications are completely free to download, and can make you more productive right away. We'll show you how to download and install them, and how you can use them to start saving time today.
Auto Document Number enhances the already impressive numbering capability present in SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM by providing users a significantly more customizable interface. ADN allows you to set up to 4 categories of prefix/suffix information to attach with a general number incrementer. For example, your number could be Product Line-Product Type-Material-XXXX, Product Line-Product Type-XXXX-Material or any other combination you would like with up to 4 categories. ADN will even rename your file with the new serial if you choose. Best of all, each numbering scheme increments independently of the next so numbers don't get skipped. If you need more flexibility than Enterprise PDM can provide out of the box, this application is for you.
Our Card Plus application adds a great deal of functionality directly to your data cards in Enterprise PDM and can be accessed with a simple button on the data card. Card Plus give you 4 distinct functions otherwise unavailable in EPDM: Print or Export - You can print your data card information to an easily readable form or export that same information in .txt or .csv format. Send Messages - Send file specific messages to other users and include links to multiple files in Enterprise PDM. View Variable History - See a table showing how data card values have changed with each version/revision. Filtered File History - Trim the history of a file down to show only specific actions such as revision bumping or file renames or filter actions by specific users.
This application is great if you would like to allow users rollback functionality but limit how far they can rollback. Accessed through a right click or via a workflow transition, Rollback to Last Revision will remove all versions of a file up to the last time its revision was incremented. This is great for making trial changes to a released document and deleting them if they don't work or for allowing users rollback flexibility without the worry of going too far.
This tool provides the Enterprise PDM user with a file browsing interface to create file references. Instead of checking out a file, copying the target file, pasting as reference and then checking in the source file, the user only needs to right click on the source file and choose the appropriate references to attach. This saves lots of time and mouse clicks when creating your own references.
