Frequently Asked Questions

What license types are available for SOLIDWORKS Manage?

Manage comes in three different license types, all of which are global floating licenses: Viewer, Contributor, and Editor.

  • Contributor Licenses add the ability to assign tasks, run reports, and edit or update most items within Manage, other than CAD data.
  • The Editor License adds the ability to create and edit CAD data.
How does SOLIDWORKS Manage compare to other PLM systems?

Manage is a highly configurable system and can be used to handle any number of traditional PLM functions, including BOM management, change management, document control, and quality management.

How does project management in SOLIDWORKS Manage differ from other tools available?

Most project management tools are either not integrated with data management solutions or they lack functionality. SOLIDWORKS Manage integrates tightly with SOLIDWORKS and PDM, allowing you to consolidate data from your engineering team, document control, and other related departments within a single user interface that also offers downstream benefits for project reports and other analytics.
