SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional is a full-featured data management system for managing engineering and other related data. Built on top of Microsoft SQL Server technology, SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional enables companies to securely manage files in a vault, control revision history and automate common tasks such as printing out drawings and PDFs for production.
All files in a PDM vault are protected by controlling access to the vault. PDM Professional can further integrate with Active Directory so Windows usernames and passwords can be used for PDM.
Version and Revision Control
Ever wished you could go back to an earlier design and re-use it? SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional stores each and every version and revision of files, maintaining a full audit trail, such that designers can go back at any time to access earlier versions.
Workflows control how documents are reviewed, checked and approved, notifying other members of the team, and triggering tasks such as publishing PDF drawing upon release.
SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional is built right into Windows Explorer. Additionally, you can access it right from within SOLIDWORKS, Autocad, Inventor and Microsoft Office.
SOLIDWORKS PDM Standard is a data management solution intended for single site workgroups wishing to take control of their engineering data. SOLIDWORKS PDM Standard eliminates the problem of storing files on a network by securing them in a vault backed by a Microsoft SQL Express database. Included in SolidWorks Professional and Premium licenses, PDM Standard is a perfect product for companies taking the first step towards controlled data management.
Working with SolidWorks files is so much easier in PDM. Simply rename or move a file, or indeed an entire folder, and SOLIDWORKS PDM will automatically update the references for you. No more assemblies falling over because somebody else renamed a part.
Electronic Signatures and Approvals
The built in workflow in SOLIDWORKS PDM allows for electronic signatures to be captured at each every stage of the design process. Full traceability is ensured by SOLIDWORKS PDM
SOLIDWORKS and Draftsight Integration
Store and manage SW and Draftsight 2D Cad files in PDM and access them from within the CAD application.
