Key revision and version controls include:
Revision Scheme Mapping
Configure company specific revision naming schemes with SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional, with its extensive range of capabilities it is possible to map in-depth alphanumerical revision control schemes and produce unique naming schemes for certain files dependant on the document type and project.
With version control a new version is created each time a file is checked into the vault, saving time and avoiding errors created through manual input with the automated management system. Files are renamed, preventing overwriting and document history can be view through various versions, with the ability to store and access old version files can be restored as needed. .
Automated Revision Incrementing
Reduce time wasted on manual input with automated revision incrementing, the system’s built-in file plugins the system’s built-in file plug-ins (to read and write “attribute” information to files) and automated workflow engine enable revision properties to be automatically incremented as a file reaches a certain stage in the workflow, this could then for example be used to update revision numbers in drawing blocks.,/p>
SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional revision and control ensures your team are using the correct version of the design and reduce the risk of expensive manufacturing mistakes caused by miscommunication whilst preserving the integrity of design iterations.
