The SOLIDWORKS PDM User Experience

Increase Efficiency & Productivity with SOLIDWORKS PDM

SOLIDWORKS PDM was designed to help users be more efficient and more productive in their day to day work. To help achieve this goal, SOLIDWORKS PDM was created to look and work the same as any regular Windows folder. What’s extra are the features added in to enhance the user’s capabilities.

Accessing a PDM vault is as simple as clicking on the PDM folder icon. This action opens up a standard Windows Explorer window; upgraded to provide extra PDM features and capabilities.  File functions, such as copy/paste and drag n’ drop work in the same familiar way as for any average Windows folder.  This allows SOLIDWORKS PDM to look and feel just like the Windows environment you’re already used to. The goal? To make it easier to learn and more convenient to work with.

Shape Up The Way You Search With EXALEAD OnePart

3DExperience-272x300Many of our GoEngineer customers already know me; I’ve been helping you with your Data Management issues for years. There is much more to Data Management than Revision Control, Change Processes, and Collaboration, it is also about organizing and finding your data.

One of the biggest challenges with the massive amounts of data generated by companies and individuals these days, is that it can be very tough to organize, and even tougher to search. You inevitably end up making multiple copies of your files (compounding the size of your dataset) and probably have them saved in various locations – perhaps one copy in your PDM system, another copy on a network drive for the shop floor, and a 3rd PDF that’s stored and managed in your PLM system.

It’s great that you’re already using tools like PDM and PLM, but there hasn’t been a way to search all 3 sources simultaneously, in the same interface, without building a homegrown/custom search tool to do so.

Developing Better Products is a “Piece of Cake”

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

I’m not much of a baker, but I can follow instructions reasonably well. If I wanted to bake aPLM1 cake, I could find a recipe, buy the specified ingredients, mix them together and bake for the recommended period of time. By following a recipe, I would increase the chances that the end result actually looks and tastes like cake! Just as a recipe provides the detailed instructions to make a quality cake, Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) systems provide the information and instructions to design quality products. Whether your company makes medical devices, industrial equipment, laptops, cell phones or other consumer products – PLM provides a secure, centralized database to manage the entire product record into a “Single Record of the Truth”. This ensures you can design and manufacture high quality products and get them to market fast and efficiently.

Agile PLM allows companies to aggregate all the components, documentation, software, engineering drawings and Bill of Material (BOM) into one system. The BOM can be thought of as the product recipe for your finished product. It may include off-the-shelf and custom parts, software and firmware, documentation, and both mechanical and electrical CAD drawings so that every aspect of the product configuration is controlled. Within the BOM view of Agile, users gain immediate insight into whether there are attached documents, pending change orders or quality issues against any level of an assembly. Users may quickly traverse the BOM to view any of the associated records or attachments. User-defined security roles and privileges ensure adherence with corporate security policies, configuration management practices and regulatory compliance initiatives. Internal and external collaboration is enabled to allow individuals, departments and partners the appropriate level of access to product information.
