Today, I am going to address the most pressing questions our prospects ask about achieving efficient electrical design in a collaborative team environment.
If you never heard of xDesign, you are in for a treat. As you all know we made leaps and bounds in technology within the last 10 years, and it is still growing. More and more companies are faced with new challenges and are hungry for great products without the overhead and expensive IT cost typically associated with engineering. The cost of servers and their upkeep is enormous. Many companies no longer maintain an IT person on staff, those requirements are more and more being outsourced. This does save money, but it is a partial solution to the problem. Currently there are many companies and organizations looking for a solution that does not require IT overhead. If this is something you are looking for, you are at the right place.
Cold Storage is a feature in SOLIDWORKS PDM that will automatically move or delete old versions of files. It can be used to reduce the amount of disk space required on an archive server. It’s similar to tape backups that would be used to take data offline to minimize storage requirements in the early days of computing. While adding disk storage is relatively inexpensive these days, managing your file archive is something an administrator should consider. In this post we will discuss some considerations, how to configure cold storage, and how it is used.
In over 13 years of working with SOLIDWORKS PDM I have created or modified dozens of workflows. Having spent so much time doing this I have found several tips that can save you time and enhance your workflows. I have also discovered a few traps to avoid. My goal with this article is to help you as a PDM Administrator configure workflows more efficiently.
