SOLIDWORKS Data Management
Manage all types of product development files using affordable, easy-to-implement SOLIDWORKS PDM (PDM) product data management solution. The robust file management solution provides the centralized file vaulting capabilities needed to manage and control electronic intellectual property and product design data. With little user overhead and a short learning curve, the system delivers a low total cost of ownership. The intuitive user interface, built right into Windows® Explorer, is extremely easy to use because there’s no need to learn a separate interface.
File management capabilities include:
Centralized storage with automated vault replication
With SOLIDWORKS PDM, you can create and maintain a single data location and vault that can be accessed by users worldwide to store and retrieve files. In addition to preserving a secure backup of product design data, secure file vaulting enables you to eliminate multiple “silos” of information, duplicate files, and unsynchronized revisions. Through vault replication, you can maintain the convenience of local file access directly from your workstation and only use the network to check-in or check-out files, as needed.
File Reference Management
Managing file references—the links between parts, assemblies, and drawings—is just as important as managing files for preserving the integrity of product development data. The SOLIDWORKS PDM system manages all file references and automatically updates them whenever you move a file to a different folder or rename it, eliminating broken references or the time required to locate and fix lost references manually.
