i am trying to set up this pdm and not getting anywhere would someone give me instructions that a human can follow to set this up i seem to be going around in cycles.
Very nice, John!
Step 3 is definitely a great one to reduce rework in the future and also to judge whether WPDM is sufficient to meet expectations.
Also get on the phone with your SolidWorks reseller. This is the stuff they can help you sort out.
Yes to Anna's comment. I used to do these as 1.5-2 day implementations and now just do a 2-3 hour web meeting with end users after they've gone through the Tutorials. It's so easy that any competent VAR AE should be able to walk you through it. You will want to plan to spend the money to have them help you as this will keep you from having to spend hours fixing problems down the road.
