We recently purchased and installed PDMWW and need help in implementation and organization. I have read posts that suggest number of files in a project should be limited to 200-500. We have several product lines with several hundreds of parts under each. How should we structure the files? If we have a high level project (for every product line) with a project folder for every part number, will all the files in all the sub-folders cause a slowdown for the top level folder?

Is there published PDMWW documentation/guidelines/user manual from SW that will help us understand these possible issues? Where can I get them?

What has been the best training method for admins to understand PDMWW? If things go wrong, how easy/difficult is it to reorganize?

We would like to use PDMWW for document approvals and release. Depending upon product line, a document requires different approvals (number of people and departments). Is it possible to set different release requirements?

Any suggestions on PDMWW implementation are welcome.

Thank you.
