Project management tool to complement ProE

Project management tool to complement ProE

Project management tool to complement ProE

I'm after a project management tool to work with ProE that allows control of design data, general data, tasks, BOM's etc. We have 10 seats of ProE with Intralink but are looking for a lower cost option than Windchill etc. Is it too much to ask?

RE: Project management tool to complement ProE

Hello. Have you heard about RPlan

This is a Java based Enterprise wide Project management tool

If you want more information, let me know.

RE: Project management tool to complement ProE

A friend of mine is very exited about a program called truEVault. It is a PDM program written for Pro/E data. It is alot easier to maintain than Intralink but seems to do most of the same things. It is less expensive than Intralink and does not require as powerfull of a server.

You can find a link on his web page at www.precistems.com. I just found out that TruEVault also has a bunch of free utilites for purging ect. that I am going to try.


RE: Project management tool to complement ProE

ProEpro is right.  We use truEvault and are very happy with it.  As long as you keep in mind that you are paying thousands less than Intralink and Windchill, then truEvault becomes a very viable alternative, and allows for an upgrade path to something else in the future once a different alternative presents itself.

(truEvault doesn't store the files itself, it only monitors and manages files in a selected location and tells you whether they are the proper revision or not...while Intralink takes the files and stores them as a proprietary, unreadable format - which ties you down to using Intralink now and forever)
