He's passionate about working with our customers and their new product introductions and staying involved in as many data management projects as possible. When he's not working, he's with his wonderful family, camping, watching sci-fi flicks and exploring the outdoors on anything with wheels.
How to Manage Bills of Materials and Engineering Change Processes with SOLIDWORKS

How to Manage Bills of Materials and Engineering Change Processes with SOLIDWORKS

In reviewing the SOLIDWORKS Manage PLM projects our Hawk Ridge Systems Enterprise Solutions team has been involved in over the last four years, there are many variations:

  • Migrations from legacy PLM systems for companies that are already in the SOLIDWORKS CAD ecosystem
  • Upgrading from SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional because they needed more functionality
  • Moving away from a Windows file system to their first formal data management and PLM system
  • A variety of different vertical markets and industries
  • A wide array in the amount of data analytics and/or project management they want included in phase one of the project plan (phased implementation vs. big bang)
  • And much more

Increased Flexibility with Managed PDM Cloud Infrastructure

Increased Flexibility with Managed PDM Cloud Infrastructure

Every day, it seems, we have more SOLIDWORKS PDM customers ask us about more flexible ways to manage their PDM environment than a traditional, physical server. Purchasing hardware is an inherently inflexible proposition and capital expenditure needs to meet future demand, meaning it will remain under-utilized for most of its life. Virtualization provides a more flexible allocation of resources but, somewhere, hardware underpins the entire infrastructure.
