Hi to all of you!
I work from some days in a new company, with this scenario: 4 SW Professional seats inside the company and 2 SW Professional seats in another country, at this moment not in communication.
The files are all on the server and the 4 seats work directly on them, with the usual problems of lost files and limitations, so my purpose is to pass to a PDM. They never used it, so they asked to see if Workgroup could be a good solution, and in the future thinking about Enterprise. During next days we will install the WPDM, and i need kindly some suggestions:
- a lot of files are duplicated; i mean, in order not to lose anything, they create a folder for every assembly where they put all the parts, even the common ones. you can imagine that we can have of the same xxxx.sldprt 30/50 copies. Big problem... Also, some assembly have problems, with wrong ID.
- they will pass to Enterprise, hopefully, during next 3/5 years, so i want to configure the things considering it.
Can you kindly give me some suggestion of how to proceed? I used only Enterprise in the past, and i would begin in the right way.
Thanks in advance for the help!
