|Video: SOLIDWORKS PDM Workflows||
Easily create electronic workflows to formalize, manage, and optimize your development, document approval, and engineering change processes with SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional or SOLIDWORKS PDM Standard software. Graphically depict processes using customizable flow charts and the system will automatically track, manage, and enforce your workflow, ensuring that the right people have access to the correct files at each process stage to make it progress more efficiently. Comprehensive reporting tools show project status so issues and delays can be addressed quickly. Reports also provide managers and executives with the information needed to improve processes and maximize profits.
Key electronic workflow capabilities include:
Electronic Signatures and Approvals
Use these tools to coordinate the entire process electronically, instead of routing paper packets and drawings for signature and approval. The electronic workflow will circulate the appropriate files required for approval and send automatic notifications when approvals or rejections are executed.
Automate your product development processes by graphically modeling them in a flow-chart environment and evaluating them for redundancy or inefficiency. This capability enables identification of areas that could potentially be automated, such as batch printing of data or scheduling off-hour use of remote computing resources for CPU-intensive functions SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional adds the ability to have multiple, highly automated workflows with unlimited states.
Configure your electronic workflow to automatically notify users when a file or document has progressed through various stages in your workflow. SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional enables notifications to be sent via email so users can use their favorite email client to receive information about changes in the PDM system.
The SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional electronic workflow capabilities enable you to streamline your workflow processes, increasing throughput and shortening time-to-market.
