SOLIDWORKS and PLM: No Fear Required

ENOVIA to SOLIDWORKS

Thinking about using SOLIDWORKS in a PLM environment? As FDR once said “We have nothing to fear, but fear itself’. The biggest fear is that your designers will revolt in the face of having to work inside a complex management environment that will force them to change the way they work.

We get this. PLM systems are typically complex and require your users to spend an inordinate amount of time on non-value added activities, such as ‘check-in’ and ‘check-out’. And why should a designer change the way they work? They have already established practices and methods that have helped them to be innovative and productive. I would not want to be the IT person telling them that they now have extra work to do!

At Dassault Systèmes, our 3DEXPERIENCE platform offers a fresh approach to this problem. Recognizing that our existing Enterprise PDM solution has been greatly accepted by the design community, the same R&D group has designed a new product that offers the usability of EPDM but actually stores the data in a broader and more capable PLM solution. The result is the SOLIDWORKS Collaborative Innovation Connector, a product that works and acts much like a workgroup solution would but gives the designer just enough access to the PLM functionality to innovate their processes beyond what they can do today in a PDM environment.

If you’ve can give us 6 minutes, we’d love to show you how SOLIDWORKS connected to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform can help increase productivity and design collaboration within design and across the enterprise. Join us for a webinar on this solution at: http://www.3ds.com/products-services/enovia/resources/enovia-solidworks-connector/
