SOLIDWORKS PDM Licenses – What Do I Need?

With SOLIDWORKS PDM, engineers and designers no longer accidentally (or purposefully) step on each others toes while working on a file. With defined workflows, the right person at the right time has access to the file. But how do decide which SOLIDWORKS PDM license is best for you and your business?

TriMech’s System Architect – Data Management, Patricia Bar, will take you through each license type that SOLIDWORKS PDM offers in-depth. She discusses the pros and cons of each, what the intended usage is and who needs to have licenses available at all times.

Included in the PDM On-Demand Webinar

In this on-demand webinar, Patricia will cover:

  • What the differences are between SOLIDOWORKS PDM license types
  • Who needs one vs who can share?
  • How licenses are handled globally
  • Can you switch license types?
