Hi,

        I am trying to implement EPDM Here and wanted to assign Serial numbers for Parts and Sub -Assemblies.

 

 

 

Parts may be Solidworks Parts or Dwg Drawings

Sub assemblies can be .sldasms or dwgs.

 

My plan is to create a folder for parts and another folder for sub assemblies.

 

Main assembly will be stored in the projects folder.

 

But i think ,This is not so user friendly Solutions as user have to Spend some time to Figure out which files goes to which folder so that serial number can be assigned.

 

 

I have two serials.

 

AA-00001   For Part files and Dwgs

and

BB-00001  For assembly files and Dwgs

How do you handle this in your company,Is this user friendly if you were using it?

 

This is not yet deployed so we are open to any amount of changes.
