SOLIDWORKS ENTERPRISE PDM
Take control of your data to enhance collaboration and innovation
Access, store, change and approve design data more efficiently with SolidWorks Enterprise PDM software.Uniquely adapted to the requirements of geographically dispersed workgroups, SolidWorks EPDM software can be deployed in a fraction of the time required by other PDM and PLM systems.
SolidWorks Enterprise PDM helps organizations manage and share product data more effectively and automate workflow to allow better collaboration from engineering to the shop floor, resulting in better products, lower costs, and faster time to market. Easy to implement and use, SolidWorks Enterprise PDM software is the only product data management solution (PDM solution) entirely integrated within Windows Explorer.
Users perform all functions either through Windows Explorer or one of its CAD integrations. Through this SolidWorks EPDM software functionality, users across the enterprise can readily manage files and collaborate more effectively throughout the product lifecycle.

When working outside of a PDM system, it can be common to have multiple copies of the same component floating around on the system. Working across the network can make it slow to include files from a network share in your assembly, so instead you pull down copies of hardware or other components that are [...]View Post
In SolidWorks, files are capable of taking on both custom file properties and configuration specific file properties. In an EPDM vault view inside Windows Explorer, the Data Card tab is used to view those properties by displaying the data card associated with the file. When viewing a file’s Data Card, one of multiple tabs can [...]View Post
