Dassault Systemes SolidWorks Corp. Unveils SolidWorks Enterprise PDM 2009

BARCELONA, Spain—(BUSINESS WIRE)—September 18, 2008— Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks Corp. (DS SolidWorks), a world leader in 3D solutions, today in a worldwide press event unveiled SolidWorks® Enterprise PDM 2009. The new version of the product data management solution introduces deeper integration with SolidWorks® 3D CAD software, expanded bill of material (BOM) functionality, and Item-Centric product data management.

Key facts

  • Because of the new, deeper integration with SolidWorks, users of SolidWorks Enterprise PDM can access a new array of PDM productivity capabilities directly from within their CAD interface, including Change State and Where Used.
  • A new preview pane in the interface displays a part thumbnail with detailed version data, sparing users the need to open files or check properties.
  • Custom drawing/assembly BOMs that are created in SolidWorks CAD software are now passed intact to SolidWorks Enterprise PDM 2009, reducing rework.
  • Named BOMs, which can be used beyond the engineering organization, are now associated with the SolidWorks assembly. This means that if a designer changes a part, the BOM is automatically updated.
  • New Item-Centric PDM provides a gateway between engineering and purchasing/finance/ERP systems.
  • SolidWorks Enterprise PDM is especially suited to companies that span multiple geographic sites, desire the benefits of automated workflow, or require the rich database functionality provided by Microsoft® SQL Server®.

The BOM enhancements in SolidWorks Enterprise PDM 2009 extend the value of PDM further across our organization to purchasing, marketing, finance, and beyond. Although the enhancements for designers and engineers make a big impact on our product quality, PDM isnt just for engineers anymore.

SolidWorks Enterprise PDM 2009 has a lot of new features inside for both the new and existing customer. Weve combined the best innovations of DS SolidWorks R&D with the requests of our customers to come up with one of the most significant product releases in our history.
