When deploying or expanding a SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional or Standard environment, InFlow Technology can migrate files from your existing sources into the SOLIDWORKS PDM environment.
Starting with a comprehensive analysis, the InFlow Technology technical team can develop a strategy for migrating your data into your new PDM system. Whether your data exists on multiple network drives or in an existing system, InFlow can help. Below are just some examples of services InFlow can provide:
Over the past 10 years, InFlow has migrated billions of files from source PDM systems into SOLIDWORKS PDM. Below are some examples of existing PDM/PLM systems we have migrated into SOLIDWORKS PDM:
- SOLIDWORKS PDM Workgroup
- AUTODESK Vault
- Baan PLM
- PTC Windchill
Complete drive scan analysis – scan the files located across directories to determine the following:
- File type counts
- Duplicate Counts
- Invalid Characters in filenames
- Broken SOLIDWORKS links
- Incomplete Custom and Configuration Specific properties
During the migration, InFlow Technology uses a proprietary set of tools to migrate the data and perform thousands of operations update and clean your data as it is loaded into PDM. Below are just some examples:
- Automatically copy the files from your source
- Reorganize your source files into new PDM structure
- Automatically populate data cards with values from external sources (i.e. ERP)
- Automatically fix broken SOLIDWORKS references
- Automatically rebuild SOLIDWORKS parts, assemblies, and drawings
- Automatically check in
- Automatically set revisions
- Automatically set workflow states
For clients looking for rapid justification, InFlow Technology can implement using one of our three standard offerings. Using proven processes with clear milestones and deliverables, InFlow will deploy a solution that meets your needs and takes advantage of our best practice implementation templates. To get started, just pick from one of our standard implementation templates.
If you require a more complex implementation, InFlow Technology can help define your implementation requirements, build a plan, manage time-lines, and project deliverables throughout to insure project success. Our development team specializes in extending the standard functionality available in SOLIDWORKS and SOLIDWORKS PDM products. Whether you are looking to automate a multi-step process in SOLIDWORKS or trigger workflow updates in SOLIDWORKS PDM, our team of certified developers can provide solutions.
If your company already uses SOLIDWORKS PDM, InFlow Technology can provide services to help add capability to your existing implementation. We have expertise in developing workflow processes and templates and have helped many companies expand their installation to cover engineering change, quality processes, and others. If you need new functionality added to PDM, InFlow Technology can develop custom software applications to automate tasks or add functionality.
