How to add Project Management to SOLIDWORKS PDM

Take PDM further with SOLIDWORKS Manage

Why your project needs SOLIDWORKS Manage software

SOLIDWORKS® Manage software provides a unique set of advanced data management tools. This is accomplished by leveraging the file management capabilities and ease of use of SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional and adding powerful projectprocess, and item management capabilities.

With SOLIDWORKS Manage, organizations can now plan each stage of a project, assign resources and tasks, and attach required documentation within the same ecosystem used to design. When users complete their tasks, project progress is automatically updated. And, project managers can take advantage of powerful dashboard capabilities to see critical information in a single, easy-to-understand interface.
