In my company we currently have 2 stations using SolidWorks on a full time basis, every once in a while our boss uses it to pull up drawings for her reference. We only have the basic SW package, so no PDMWorks. Recently we ran into an issue where I would have an assembly open, but the other station needed to make a change to one of the very basic parts in that assembly, and well, now we are worried about future possible over-writing issues. We are looking for suggestions on a data management solution, and any help would be very much appreciated. Some of the stuff we would like to find our are the pros and cons of PDMWorks and suggestions for good, reliable, STABLE, 3rd party software at all. Please help.
