    PDM & Composer: Create, Review And Publish Documentation In a Snap

    August 26, 2019

    SOLIDWORKS Product Data Management (PDM) solutions are ideal to help you keep your project data organized and the latest version available for multiple teams during development. SOLIDWORKS Composer is used to create digital materials, documentation and technical publications all with the intent of giving customers and company stakeholders a better understanding of your product information earlier in the design process, lowering costs and speeding time-to-market. In this blog article, we look at how SOLIDWORKS PDM and SOLIDWORKS Composer work together to create more accurate output while saving more time when compared to a traditional product development workflow.

    SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional: Top Three Replication Best Practices

    July 30, 2019

    Replication is a feature in SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional that allows you to have a single vault that is used across many geographically separated locations. This increases the software’s performance and provides the user with a better experience. In this blog article, we’ll be focusing on three best practices that will help you replicate your vault in SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional: building schemas, maintaining schemas and monitoring activity.

    SOLIDWORKS PDM & Toolbox: How To Set Up For a Multi-User Environment

    April 8, 2019

    Enterprise Data Management solutions are used for keeping your design data files organized and under control. Organizing your data in a vault, or central archive, is ideal for automating workflows, finding files and ensuring manufacturing teams have the latest file versions. If you’re a SOLIDWORKS PDM Standard or SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional user, there are ways to optimize the performance by using the benefits of the SOLIDWORKS Toolbox.

    Migrating from Vault (Autodesk PLM) to SOLIDWORKS

    December 28, 2018

    TriMech has developed a 12-phased approach to migrating data from one system to another. Typically, with PLM to PDM, we start off with a detailed analysis of the database. Then, we move on to the definition of what you are looking to do with your data. The complexity comes with all the features of a PLM system that a PDM system inherently does not have. Items, for instance, are records in the systems that may have a file, many files or no file associated with it. These have to be converted to a file-based system.  There are several other types of PLM features that will need to be addressed.
