Have we designed anything like this before? Do we still have the CAD models? Is there any documentation? Who worked on it and when? Shouting across the room to ask one of these common questions doesn’t work when that person is a thousand miles and three time zones away.
SolidWorks Enterprise PDM (EPDM) provides an easy way for designers to collaborate on product designs without worrying about version control or data loss. It stores CAD models and supporting documents–anything from emails to images–in an indexed central repository that tracks versions and automates workflows to eliminate wasteful repetition.
EPDM is designed for organizations that
- have anywhere from three designers to hundreds
- divide engineering work among multiple locations; and/or
- outsource engineering work
Affordable and easy to implement
SolidWorks EPDM has a low cost of ownership. It's easy to deploy, and you don't have to sit through days of training to learn how to use it. And your IT Manager will be happy to know that he or she won't have to spend hours and hours supporting the system.
It's easy to share design data
EPDM's accessibility features let you store, search and share product data more efficiently, manage and share product data more effectively, and automate workflows. Streamlining processes between engineering and the shop floor yields better products, lowers costs, and helps you get to market faster.
EPDM keeps your data safe from loss or harm
Strong security and version control functions maintain data integrity. SolidWorks EPDM’s secure access and built-in audit functions protect data from accidental and deliberate damage while tracking who accesses design data, what they changed, and when.
