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

How does project management in
SOLIDWORKS Manage differ from other project management 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.
