Mastering Your Bill of Materials and Changes With SOLIDWORKS Manage

Mastering Your Bill of Materials and Changes With SOLIDWORKS Manage

Managing your product’s lifecycle is getting increasingly difficult as the standards for industries change and your data is spread out across many different applications. SOLIDWORKS Manage can help you reign in your data, allowing you to control and monitor the status of your projects and products.

In our recent webinar, "How to Master Bill of Materials and Changes with SOLIDWORKS Manage PLM," our Enterprise Solutions Specialist went over how SOLIDWORKS Manage can be used to bring all your data together to simplify your products lifecycle. We go through an exercise from the start of an engineering change request (ECR) process to its completion, while modifying components and the bill of materials along the way. We’ll show you how easy it can be to manage your engineering changes.

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

Azure Cloud Hosted Solution for SOLIDWORKS PDM and Manage PLM

Azure Cloud Hosted Solution for SOLIDWORKS PDM and Manage PLM

The topic of cloud computing is not a new one, dominating the IT airwaves for the better part of the last decade. Relative to the rest of the application landscape, our engineering space has been a bit slower to adopt cloud infrastructure understandably due to IP protection, security/ITAR, and performance concerns of cloud versus a traditional on-premises infrastructure.

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.
