EPDM Work orders – Demanded from the great beyond

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Sadly, because of all of my blog fans I recently had to get an unlisted phone number. However because of FCC regulations I have learned it is not possible to get an unlisted séance phone. As a result I still get Marie Antoinette calling offering me Little Debbies, Pince Albert asking me why I have him in a can, and Slimer asking me if I know how much longer Bill Murray will be with us. Though yesterday I got an […]

Enterprise tracks inspection records

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

If you work for a company that needs to inspect your designs periodically after they are built, SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM can be a great tool to help you keep track of these inspections. Most people’s first reaction would be to simply “Paste as Reference” the inspection record sheet to the inspected part. However to do this, after every inspection you would need to check out the part – typically creating a new revision of the part. Since an inspection shouldn’t […]

ABC has canceled our mini-series, Mr. Rivera has left in a huff saying that he had not been disrespected so much since Hugh Downs kept thinking he was an intern and always sent him out to get coffee. Geraldo left with this item screen shot on his screen: Since Al had a world wide business, it would be logical that he was using SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM for its multi-site capabilities. Though he quickly learned each business unit had different manufacturing […]

Geraldo continues… “Welcome back from our break.

It appears Al had an item card created especially for his stocked items as well, here is their item card.” “I am sure it was very helpful to his designers to know what was available on hand. Though I notice there […]

(Kept at a cool 50 degrees Fahrenheit for maximum chip performance.)  Go to the SOLIDWORKS models that Capone used to retrofit his famous bullet proof Cadillac. Can you find any? “Can I find any? With Enterprise’s search features, is that a joke Engineering Data Specialist […]

My original plan was to have Geraldo Rivera take over today’s blog, but he claims he can no longer type since his nose was broken, so I’ll continue with the narration. Okay Geraldo, what does the next tab look like in Capone’s item master? “Well Engineering Data Specialist Man, it appears Capone had an extensive training program. Many of his training documents have an item card associated with them to track who has actually reviewed each document. In the past, […]

Today Geraldo Rivera and I will explore the mysterious SOLIDWORKS Enteprise Vault owned by Al Capone. I wanted this to be a short little blog entry of how Al Capone used the Item Master inside of Enterprise, but Geraldo wants to make this a five part mini-series to air on ABC during sweeps week. Item Centric PDM ability was introduced in Enterprise 2009 service pack two. Since that time there has been nothing but mystery around it. “What good is […]

The webinar will show how to set up Enterprise’s Item master, the basics of the interface then show some “real world” examples. If you would like to register, go to the […]
