What is Foundation Implementation?
Maximise The Return On Your Investment
A PDM Professional Foundation implementation is designed to ensure our customers rapidly maximise the return on their investment in SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional. Based on a best practice template, a PDM Professional vault is tailored to suit the customer’s requirements and provides greater functionality and capability.

Designed for customers who have SOLIDWORKS but also have other document formats to manage and want better control of design processes such as engineering change.
What you need to know…
A Foundation implementation is a comprehensive implementation package for customers who want to do more than just manage their SOLIDWORKS design data. Although a FOUNDATION implementation can be delivered in as little as 5 days, typically the implementation is delivered over a 4 to 6week period. The actual time frame is dependent on a number of factors such as legacy data migration requirements, availability of customer resources including, the PDM Professional training schedule, hardware (Server) availability, and your required go-live date.

The customers PDM administrator is entitled to attend free PDM Professional Administrator training courses at one of our office locations and your implementation will be managed by one of our PDM specialist and tracked from start to finish.
What's included?
As part of the FOUNDATION package, one of our PDM specialists will, install the server and client software and roll out a PDM Vault based on the delivery of a best practice pre-configured template that is then tailored to suit the customer’s requirements within the framework of a Statement of Works which is agreed before the implementation start.

In addition to managing SOLIDWORKS data a FOUNDATION implementation covers the management of office documents, DraftSight (DWG) files and caters for a basic engineering change process. In addition to the installation, system configuration and go live support a customer representative in entitled to attend one of our regular Classroom based PDM Administrator courses to give them the skills and knowledge they need to fully participate in the implementation process.

Should your immediate requirements extend beyond the scope of our FOUNDATION package, your Regional Sales Manager (RSM) can help you to confirm your requirements and supply information on additional services that we can supply.
