CAD Data Management

CAD Data Management is a key component of product design and supports a wide range of downstream processes including virtual prototyping, work instructions, and technical publications. Managing CAD data through enterprise processes provides a huge advantage for the business and is often a top priority of PLM initiatives.

Leverage All Your CAD Data –

Integration with PDM/PLM makes it available across the enterprise as well as supply chain partners and fully integrates it with part and BOM structures.

Key Features

  • Connectors available for all popular MCAD and ECAD tools.
  • Single integrated environment for managing multi-disciplinary, multi-tool CAD data.
  • CAD file lifecycle status management, versioning and user access control.
  • Part and BOM items extracted and synchronized with PDM/PLM.
  • CAD and documents automatically linked to corresponding parts.
  • Viewable automatically created for Visual Collaboration.

CAD File Management: Mechanical CAD Integrations include:

  • NX
  • Pro/Engineer
  • SolidWorks
  • Solid Edge
  • Inventor
  • AutoCAD

Benefits of CAD Integration

  • Reduces unnecessary Errors and Delays in process – A single system integrated with enterprise processes for all engineering data Supports global product development and supply chain collaboration strategies
  • Increases control over critical intellectual property by applying user authentication and access management
  • Increases engineering efficiencies ability by including CAD data in all PLM processes.
