What is SOLIDWORKS Manage?
SOLIDWORKS Manage is a new tool that combines data management with powerful project, process, and item management capabilities inside of interactive dashboards and reports. This is the next step for customers who are already enjoying the benefits of PDM Professional and want to take their business systems to the next level.
Does your team suffer from any of the following?
- Disconnected management tools and silos of data
- Project schedule and cost overruns
- Critical information that is hard to gather and understand
SOLIDWORKS Manage was created with these issues in mind and provides access to synchronized data all in one system while eliminating the need for external resources. This allows project managers to consolidate their management tools making things much simpler. It can also reduce the time it takes to create Bill of Materials for projects through an easy-to-use editing feature that combines file and record data.
Project management software integrated into file data management reduces overrun on time and cost. With SOLIDWORKS Manage, your team can link timelines, resources, tasks, and deliverables to a common project in one system that is always up to date. This makes it much easier to keep track of deadlines and goals.
SOLIDWORKS Manage also provides project managers with information to make critical product development decisions with the help of interactive dashboards and an overall view of resources.
Speaking of Dashboards…
Below is an example of a dashboard you could customize to fit your own needs in SOLIDWORKS Manage. You can create interactive graphics to display critical information, utilize charts and graphs, configure reports to company standards, and so much more. Dashboards are where you really start to see the difference between PDM Pro and Manage, and how Manage can help your business level up.
Can I get Manage if I already have PDM Professional?
Yes! SOLIDWORKS Manage includes, or sits on top of, the global file management and application integrations enabled by SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional. Client and server requirements are basically the same. Manage runs on the same SQL Server instance but has its own dedicated database that connects to SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional.
