Abstract

Small engineering teams face the same CAD data complexity as larger organizations. Yet they don't have the resources required for a Configurable PDM system. A new wave of modern PDM systems is emerging that is right-sized for small engineering teams. This eBook gives an overview of those new systems.

Recommended Readers

This eBook is best for engineering managers looking to mitigate the complexity of CAD. This eBook is relevant for companies of all sizes in discrete manufacturing industries.

Excerpt

It's not just the largest engineering organizations, however, that face these challenges. The exact same issues plague small engineering teams as well. The difference lies in how readily each can address them. Big engineering organizations, with needs to address larger challenges as well, turn to configurable Product Data Management (PDM) systems as a solution. Small design teams, unfortunately, lack the resources to plan, deploy, maintain and actually use such systems. Recently, that story has begun to change. A new wave of modern PDM systems is emerging that is right-sized for small engineering teams, in terms of both deployment and usability.
