PDM...What is it and why do you need it?

In a few of my previous posts, I have hinted about the integrated PDM that is within TopSolid 7.

In this post, I am going to do more than hint.  I am going to show you why PDM could be the missing piece to your companies engineering and manufacturing structure.

So, what is PDM?

PDM stands for Product Data Management.  PDM can be used to manage such things as:

  • Major and Minor Versions of parts/assemblies/drawings…
  • User permissions (who can edit what for example)
  • Naming structures

Simply put, PDM is used to manage electronic data of all types.

Now in some circles using the word PDM is almost like using fowl language!  And I can understand why.

PDM has traditionally been an afterthought to the product that it is written to manage.  Confusing right?
