Can anybody tell me how will be my career in SOLIDWORKS EPDM ADMINISTRATION for future perspective.
I am an IT guy I want to be in this Administration as mentioned please suggest.
I would suggest taking the PDM Administration classes offered by SolidWorks. Then if you want to be really helpful to the users you should take some time and learn some basics of using the program so that you can understand some of the issues the users are dealing with. Without knowledge of how the software operates it is easy to not understand where the potential hangups with file access are. Two things I have had a difficult time getting through peoples head are: 1. just because what you see on paper is just a set of lines I can't just move a couple of lines and give you a revised design, I virtually built the assembly and then take projections of that virtual object to make the print. and 2. when someone opens an assembly, even to work on one or two files, they have control of every part in that assembly ane everyone else is unable to work on one of the other parts until the first person releases them, if you can figure out who has them. This often seems difficult for non-CAD users to grasp for some reason.
However if you want to be a useful IT person I would not contain your knowledge to just SolidWorks. You will probably change jobs at some time any could easily find yourself managing another CAD package. No mater how much we all LOVE this software you need to have an idea what is out there and not become too specialized. There is also the very real possibility of having to be able to manage two or more CAD packages and file sharing between them if you are looking to work with a larger company.
Now I will shut up and allow some real CAD administrators give you their prospective.
Thanks for your suggestionJim Steinmeyer
