Manufacturing organizations can struggle with the rapidly growing volumes of data that they create when designing and producing their products.Industry analysts research shows that producers who are implementing effective data management solutions are:
as likely to be “very effective” at finding the data they need
as likely to be “very effective” at managing their design projects
as likely to be “very effective” at sharing data with others
as likely to be “very effective” at providing the correct data to manufacturing
A scalable set of data management solutions that meet the varying needs of small to large manufacturing organizations who may design simple or very complex products. These Solid Edge CAD data management solutions enable you to rapidly take the key actions identified by industry analysts that lead to improved product development performance:
