SolidWorks Workgroup PDM is an easy-to-set-up-and-use product data management (PDM) solution that is uniquely adapted to managing SolidWorks product data for the individual or workgroup. SolidWorks Workgroup PDM features include: control of file revisions and security management of project data.
Workgroup PDM Capabilities:
- Control revisions and manage CAD projects more easily and effectively. SolidWorks® Workgroup PDM automatically captures file revision histories automatically and allows you and other members of your product design team to instantly access desired files, determine who has worked on them, and see exactly when changes were made. By accelerating time-to-market, SolidWorks Workgroup PDM helps your design team minimize errors and duplicated efforts.
- Protect project files with simple and complete security.
SolidWorks Workgroup PDM provides an effective approach to securing files through vaulting – a simple, yet highly reliable and safe system for storing shared project files. SolidWorks Workgroup PDM provides an additional level of security beyond a standard networked environment where files are shared by means of common network folders. With SolidWorks Workgroup PDM, access to vaulted information is only possible through the user interface by means of the administrative controls that you establish for your workgroup. Unlike common network or local folders, the SolidWorks Workgroup PDM Vault protects your design information from unauthorized access as well as accidental overwrites and deletions.
- Spend less time organizing and tracking all types of design data.
SolidWorks Workgroup PDM helps your design team more efficiently manage all types of design information – both documents and data – including properties such as description, status, number, and costs. You can make changes simply by selecting items and keying in new values, automatically updating all associated bills of materials and reports.
