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.

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.

Are you still using a paper-based product development process? If you're a small to mid-sized manufacturer using SOLIDWORKS, it's time to upgrade to a Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution. Learn how PLM can benefit your business from guest blogger, Alaine Portnoy of Omnify.
Customers don't only come to TriMech to make a purchase, but also for advice and guidance to figure out the right solution that fits their business and meets their goals.
