Good summary Peter. We currently use Matrix PDM with UG (I use Solidworks on the side contract). Matrix works like most other PDMs, files are checked out to a specified user folder. It's a nightmare when we need to collaborate on designs. In that case we use the network for our local work area but UG doesn't have settings to open referenced files read-only like Solidworks so it really blows. The CAD interface to Matrix isn't half as good as PDM/Works as there is no realy visual ques that you files need updating.

Up until the time I left my previous employer that used Solidworks, we were on the path of DBWorks. I liked PDM/Works GUI better but the use local files and lack of multi-site support killed it.
