White Paper - The Engineering Leader’s Guide to PDM & Data Management

When people decide to pursue a career in mechanical engineering or industrial design, they’re thinking mostly about creating cool and innovative products – not spending endless hours managing their design files. So it’s not surprising that CAD tools get most of the glory when companies are evaluating software platforms for their product development teams. Data management solutions are usually treated as an afterthought.

In The State of Product Development & Hardware Design 2019, an independent research report on the design and manufacturing industry, 86% of companies said they need to reduce errors resulting from working on the wrong version of a design or receiving important project information too late.

It doesn’t matter how smart, talented or innovative your employees are if their productivity tools are (ironically) slowing them down. In the best case scenario, mistakenly manufacturing the wrong part can lead to hours of wasted time and needlessly wasted money. In the worst case scenario, version control problems can lead to product recalls and possible harm to the public.

The good news is that most data management problems can be proactively minimized or prevented altogether.

In this white paper you will learn:
  • The critical role that data management plays at every stage of the product design and manufacturing process
  • Key factors to consider when choosing the best solution for your company
  • Benefits and pitfalls of Product Data Management (PDM) systems, and compares them to alternative cloud and mobile technologies that are relatively new to the market
