ECNs and SolidWorks Enterprise PDM

Over 1000 companies use SolidWorks Enterprise PDM for data management.  Hundreds of different file types can be put under revision control and viewed in the Enterprise system, including SolidWorks, Inventor, Pro/Engineer, SolidEdge, and many different office document types.  What some are discovering is that Enterprise has very powerful workflow tools to manage process, such as Engineering Change.  Whatever your process, it can be created in flowchart editor and then linked to your standard forms for ECR, ECO, NPI, RFQ, Work Order, or others.  The system can send automatic notifications and time/date stamp data cards and even drawings with the approval information.


In the video, we create an ECN based on a simple workflow.  This workflow may be representative of your ECN, but even if it is not, it is a very easy system to use to build your own.  And the best news of all…it is free with your Enterprise system.  So if you own Enterprise, you should be using this technology to improve your productivity.  For more information, contact us at InFlow Technology.
