We have also come to appreciate the ease of use and administration - today we use the complete range of services from SolidWorks PDM Professional not only for organising cooperation in the design team. We have mapped our entire construction processes with workflows and thus reflect our way of working in the system.
It is also very important for us that we can now access various previous development statuses relatively easily. This creates creative freedom and seamless documentation of the product development process, which is particularly important for long-running projects.
Furthermore, the PDM system saves us a lot of routine work and redundant inputs that we previously had to do manually. Using the workflow-based export function, we create and update our articles and parts lists in the ERP system synchronously with our design statuses and releases. At the same time, the task server generates 2D and 3D PDF data when the construction data is released. This data is then automatically available company-wide with the current status.
