SolidWorks Enterprise PDM ECN Process

I have created quite a few workflow processes using SolidWorks Enterprise PDM.  When processing a workflow route in Enterprise, you typically have to start with a file.  The file is routed along the workflow.  In many cases, the file is a spreadsheet, word document, or virtual file (an EPDM record with no file).  In the case of the video below, I am using an html file.  This process passes variables from the input data card to the html as the file is process on the workflow.  Using this method, users do not have to open an application like Excel to edit the ECN form.  They can simply make their changes on the data card and they get “displayed” in the html format (which is good for printing).  At certain points in the workflow, I even swap out images on the html so that it actually drops a scan of the approvers’ signature.  All this was done with no custom programming.  Enjoy…
