Re-use and Knowledge Transfer
Many companies need to increase design re-use in order to lower costs, but many efforts fail because search tools are inadequate and it is too cumbersome for users to make their work available to others. New, powerful full-text search capabilities in the MatrixOne PLM platform allow users to quickly locate product development content just by providing a few key-words about file content or metadata. Microsoft� Office applications have access to MatrixOne PLM storage as if it is a local drive on the end user’s desktop. This makes it easy for end users to work in their Microsoft-based environment natively, saving their product documentation to MatrixOne — and having it be there for others to retrieve at a later date.
The new MatrixOne PLM capabilities will be available with Matrix 10.6 in June 2005.
