Webcast: Top 10 Signs You’ve Outgrown Your PDM System

Strong product data management (PDM) capabilities are proven to drive better business performance. However, manufacturers can’t achieve this with basic PDM.

But an advanced PDM system can completely transform a manufacturer’s engineering and product development practices. That’s because it supports advanced collaboration, configuration/BOM management, and project management – capabilities far beyond basic PDM systems.
