Learn how to use SOLIDWORKS PDM to organize your work, track changes from multiple users, and maintain file references in complex projects.
- [Instructor] Welcome to the Learning SolidWorks PDM course. Many SolidWorks users struggle when trying to collaborate in a multi-user environment. Fire references can be broken, changes and updates can be lost, or confusion can arise from unorganized file structures. My name is David Antanavige, CSWE. We will show you how SolidWorks product data management can assist with things like tracking and managing all the changes of your fellow users, including version, and revision control. How you can spend less time organizing and tracking all the design data that you use.
How you can leverage PDM to improve your productivity, and enhance collaboration, and also how you can very easily maintain file references with ease inside of Windows Explorer. Thank you for joining me, and let's jump in.
