I'm not sure exactly on SolidWorks Explorer, but from here:
SolidWorks Workgroup PDM Summary:
* Provides secure access to engineering data
* Facilitates design re-use
* Enables a workgroup design environment
* Automates revision control
* Lets you spend less time organizing and tracking design data
* Provides rapid ROI with limited IT required
SolidWorks Enterprise PDM Summary:
* Easy to implement and use
* Provides scalable, secure access for large design teams
* Enables companies to manage data at multiple locations with automatic file replication at each site
* Automates simple workflow including ECN/ECO processes
* Enables connectivity to MRP/ERP systems
* Full audit trails enable regulatory compliance
We're using PDM Enterprise personally, and while it does require customization to get it just the way we want it, we've been really happy with it so far. We're definitely not a straight "out-of-the-box" kind of company but support on the forums has been great and it's proving to be fairly easy to configure PDM Enterprise to our exact specifications.
