Leverage Design Automation with DriveWorks

Where to get started with Data Management
What is Data Management?
CAD data management involves efficiently organising and securing Computer-Aided Design files, ensuring version control, and promoting collaboration for streamlined engineering and design workflows.
What are my Options?
Data management can involve more than just CAD data, it is connected to everything from concept to production. We offer several solutions that cater for all sectors and industries.
Key Consideration
When choosing a data management solution, there are 3 core areas that need to be considered.
How much configuration you need?
What is the scalability?
What is your infrastructure needs?
How can Solid Solutions help?
We take time to understand your needs and process, we are here to help you select and implement your chosen solutions to ensure your business thrives in its data management solution.
Where to start with Data Management...

 

 

Why you can't ignore Data Management?
Knowing where to start with finding the correct Data management solutions can be overwhelming, which is why we're here to help.

Even in its most basic form, data management is critical in the design and development of any product. As products develop, assemblies become larger with more and more complex data sets. Please register and watch this webinar as we tackle three areas:
  • What is product data management?
  • Why data management is so important to you
  • What are my options?

Reviewing key considerations
SOLIDWORKS PDM
  • PDM is a highly configurable system
  • Can be tailored to match your current business processes.
  • No disturbance to your well established, well defined processes
  • High degree of configurability and customisation available with SOLIDWORKS PDM and SOLIDWORKS Manage if required.
CONFIGURABLE
3DEXPERIENCE?
  • 3DX platform defines best practice processes provided by Dassault Systemes.
  • The platform includes all the functionality you need from a Data Management system, but provided in a much more uniform way.
  • More suited to a business willing to adopt a streamlined approach.
SOLIDWORKS PDM
  • PDM licenses are perpetual, so you buy and own the licenses.
  • PDM has an element of scalability in that we could start with PDM Standard to manage just the SOLIDWORKS design data
  • Ability to scale up to PDM Professional to also manage Multi Products and non-CAD data, enable multi-site collaboration
  • SOLIDWORKS Professional can links to other systems such as ERP or CRM
  • Beyond SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional we have SOLIDWORKS Manage, which provides a whole new layer of capabilities that sits on top of the data management to give: Business Process Management, Project Management, Dashboard, and Advanced BOM Item Management.
  • Scaling up with PDM will incur additional implementation and often configuration costs
SCALABILITY
3DEXPERIENCE?
  • 3DX is a SaaS, so you rent/lease the licenses, and access to functionality is delivered in the form of your business ‘Roles’.
  • Licenses are more flexible, so it is easy to scale up your use of the platform and its tools when required, but also to scale down,
  • Ideal if perhaps you have been working on a large project that has come to an end, or are in between projects.
  • The Platform is also scalable in terms of functionality, so you could start with CAD data management, expand into: document management, change management, and then into multi-product design; containing MCAD, ECAD and software.
SOLIDWORKS PDM
  • Our PDM solutions require that you have a physical server running SQL.
  • The software needs to be installed on the server and you then need to maintain it, for example; backing up, software upgrades, cyber security.
  • You may need your own IT resource to maintain
  • You can choose to host your PDM server in the cloud if required, for remote access and reduced on-premise infrastructure
  • We partner with a cloud service provider called ioMART, who provide a solution that matches the requirements of PDM.
INFRASTRUCTURE
3DEXPERIENCE?
  • The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform is entirely managed and supported by Dassault Systemes
  • No investments in physical infrastructure and IT resource, and all updates, backups and platform security are managed for you.
