SOLIDWORKS Product Data Management (PDM) centralizes the storage of all your engineering data and files. With SolidWorks PDM you can dramatically reduce the time spent searching for parts, assemblies, and drawings. SolidWorks PDM will help drive design reuse and manage your overall 3D design experience. Implementation takes only a fraction of the time required by other solutions. SolidWorks can scale from small teams to designers working in tandem across the world.
SOLIDWORKS offers the following leading PLM solutions including:
- SOLIDWORKS PDM
- SOLIDWORKS Manage
- SOLIDWORKS Data and Lifecycle Management (based on 3DEXPERIENCE)
SOLIDWORKS PDM is an all-inclusive application that provides both high performance and scalability. PDM is integrated in Microsoft Windows Explorer and provides a powerful PDM tool with a lower learning curve. The system supports managing various CAD products and configurable workflows. You can get up and running in a matter of days. It also offers expansion capabilities so you can grow the system to meet changing company needs.
SOLIDWORKS Manage is an advanced record-based management system that extends global file management and includes application integration as well as distribution capabilities. SOLIDWORKS Manage can be used as a standalone system or on top of PDM and provide more PLM functionality such as BOM management, change and process management, project management and more.
SOLIDWORKS Data and Lifecycle Management is based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and is offered both in the cloud and on premise. This solution provides data management, engineering change and project management. In addition, the solution can extend into the other functionality provided within the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
