I would like to get a general feel for the SolidWorks PDM capabilities.
- Are there modules that will manage other CAD data? Catia? Pro/E? AutoCad (thermal desktop)? Mentor Graphics (pcad)?
- What is the ease for full change control? Class I or II changes that may or may not require CCB? Are the workflows easy to customize?
- How is access control handled? Can you isolate data from users per product line or company sites? Can you flag datasets as ‘ITAR’ classification?
- What are the MRP export capabilities? Can you build a ‘MBOM’ of parts based on the CAD dataset ‘EBOM’? Will this export into say SAP or Visibility?
- Can you publish drawings (PDF) from the controlled CAD datasets showing release status with watermarks?
Thanks in advance, Kathy
