We are looking at possibly upgrading out PDMW to Enterprise. Themain reason is due the limits in the amount of data that PDMW canhandle. We currently have over 14,000 projects in PDMW and it isstarting to crash. Solidworks and our VAR is aware of thesitutation. No solution as of yet. One solution is to upgrade toPDME. Our company has over 85,000 parts and growing. Some of ourspecifications and doesigns are Solidworks data and some arenothing more than a written specification. We also have .xls andother files that are part of the specification or data that wewould like to manage about the part. Is there any information thatlists what system is better suited in handleing. We do need tocolaborate with our China office and Korea office. Also we havemany other database based systems that we currently can't tie intowith PDMW. Would this be possible with enterprise. I am looking forany information that shows/list the differences in the twosoftwares and advantages.
