Webinar: Top 10 Signs You’ve Outgrown Your PDM System
Strong product data management (PDM) capabilities are proven to drive better business performance. However, manufacturers can’t achieve this with basic PDM.

Basic PDM systems don’t do much beyond keeping data under control. No wonder, on average, manufacturers waste 15% of engineers’ time on non-valued-added data management capabilities. An outdated PDM system can make this worse.

However, an advanced PDM system can completely transform a manufacturer’s engineering and product development practices. That’s because it supports advanced collaboration, configuration/BOM management, and project management – capabilities far beyond basic PDM systems.

Join this webcast and learn how to determine if you’ve outgrown your PDM system and what are the next steps. Discover:

  • Top 10 signs it’s time for a new PDM system
  • What’s missing from basic PDM systems
  • How to support more advanced PDM processes
  • Server, vendor partner, and special considerations
  • The value of extending your PDM investment
