We are in the process of implementing EPDM for our company and am trying to strike a happy medium between creating folders and Data Card attributes. We have many different products that fall under one division i.e. Burners, Sections, Headers, SCRS's, etc with each being their own design group. We could have multiple products under one Project. I am not sure if we should divide these products with a Folder, or add a field on the Data Card? We initially will deploy EPDM with all products having the same Workflow and Permissions, but this could change.
On a different but same subject, we have 1000's of Library of parts that will get migrated to EPDM also, which are currently structured in an elaborate Folder system. Do I replace the Folder system with a field on the Data Card? I am leaning towards a field on the Data Card to eliminate maintenance of Folders.
