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:
