If you use the SOLIDWORKS product suite to create and manage your Engineering IP you already know how their power and flexibility help you be more competitive in the market. SOLIDWORKS had the foresight realize that when it comes to design, validation, process management, and manufacturing not every company has the exact same requirements. To ensure broad relevance they make their APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) open for anyone to use.
HAWKWARE CUSTOM DEVELOPMENT INCLUDES:
Users can ensure that all your child components are approved and promoted in your workflow before the assemblies are finished.
Users can apply serial numbers to files when you are really ready, rather than upon initial creation of the files.
Users can manage non-CAD documents, like MS Word or Excel with serial numbers just like your CAD documents.
Users can select their fellow team members to be notified on the data card within in the same general workflow and workflow settings.
Perform a major restructuring of your SOLIDWORKS PDM folders from your PDM Template engine and without manually going through each group and resetting permissions for all those recurring folders.
Users don't need to manually attach PDM documents as references. HawkWare Custom Development automatically checks out the parent and checks it in afterward.
