Product data management (PDM) is the business function, often within product lifecycle management (PLM), that is responsible for the management and publication of product data.
PTC Windchill offers organizations comprehensive change management that builds upon the CAD management capabilities that everyone is already using. It is ideally suited for today’s complex manufacturing environment — one in which stakeholders tasked with approval responsibilities are often scattered around the globe. Our PDM tools make sure that every required approval has happened and then prescribes an appropriate course of action (e.g., if the change is approved, automatically generate a change notice).
Our PDM system provides a rich systematic approach for creating, managing and reusing product structures that contain detailed product content, such as CAD files, documentation, requirements, manufacturing information, part/supplier data, calculations and illustrations, providing accurate and reliable data to improve productivity and product innovation.
In this video, Brian, your 3D engineering, talks about product data management (PDM) and the challenges of today's alternatives.

And recreating designs because the original is lost isn’t good for anyone’s bottom line. Download these eBooks to learn more about challenges and trends in PDM
