How SOLIDWORKS PDM is more helpful for Industrial Equipment Manufacturers?

Critical Assets to Monitor Industrial Equipment Manufacturing Process Issues :

Industrial Equipment Sector presents a unique situation in terms of reliability, primarily due to the nature of production. While a wide range of other industries can run at reduced loads or output after suffering unexpected downtime, nearly all assets in industrial manufacturing can be viewed as critical. All assembly line style of manufacturing equipment is dependent on other equipment up line or down line to be operating during production. Even a small issue can severely cripple or entirely halt production. Therefore, it is highly critical to monitor any asset that has the potential to slow or halt production to reduce or eliminate unplanned downtime.

Product Data Management (PDM) is the use of software to manage product data and process-related information in a single, central system. This information includes Computer-Aided Design (CAD) data, models, parts information, manufacturing instructions, requirements, notes and documents.

  1. Capture, manage and deliver product information
  • PDM systems capture and manage product information, ensuring that information is delivered to users throughout the product lifecycle in the correct context.
  • File ownership, version control (check-in and check-out of files), revision

  1. Functionality & Data Security
  • Security and administrative functionality protects intellectual property rights through role management, project-based security and associated access privileges.

  1. Process Enablement
  • A PDM system can help you establish, manage and execute automated workflow-driven processes that reflect company-specific best practices for change planning (what-if analysis), change incorporation (execution), and change verification and communication.

  1. Configuration Management
  • PDM systems provide the visibility necessary for managing and presenting a complete Bill Of Materials (BOM). It facilitates the alignment and synchronization of all sources of BOM data, as well as all lifecycle phases, including the as-designed, as-planned, as-built and as-maintained states. 

  • All users have access to the latest versions of files, that are stored in a central location. This means manufacturing can have immediate and direct access to a project file, when it is release.
  • All files are stored centrally, thereby reducing the chance of data loss or. This includes having your work overwritten, by a co-worker saving files, to a shared network drive.
  • Multiple versions of files can be kept, thereby allowing a user to revert to a previous version.

  • Find the correct data quickly
  • Improve productivity and reduce cycle times
  • Reduce development errors and costs
  • Improve value chain orchestration
  • Meet business and regulatory requirements
  • Optimize operational resources
  • Facilitate collaboration between global teams
  • Provide visibility for better business decision-making



  1. These outline industry is making new advancements all around asked for as it welcomes new examinations and degrees of progress in their assignments. Industry Design Auckland are including new features all around asked for development of our plans like freehand touch sketching,rapid talk of framework considerations and terms, et cetera.
