Manufacturers everywhere struggle to effectively manage engineering data. It seems easy at first to keep track of concept designs, engineering models, technical drawings, and assemblies. But with time, homegrown filing systems become a headache for product developers who need to find, re-use, and share data. Often, developers simply recreate what they need rather than try to locate an existing model.
Too bad, because Product Data Management (PDM) systems traditionally solve this problem — for large companies. And the smaller manufacturers? Well, until recently, many muddled through with saved files on their desktops and shared folders. That’s because, despite the smaller company’s needs, professional systems required more time and investment to reflect more complex processes.
