It is extremely hard to manage the history of a file and documenting and approving these changes is usually the main areas of concern for companies.

Luckily, managing the history of a file is the bread and butter of what SOLIDWORKS PDM does. Properly documenting why changes were made with appropriate sign off tends to be slightly more challenging.

To assist with this, Javelin has taken common requirements from numerous companies and has done the administration work to implement a great Engineering Change Request (ECR) module that is fully integrated into SOLIDWORKS PDM system.

Note that all the template and workflows can be tweaked to match precisely your company standards.

This is where our team will work with you to determine the best approach to follow and implement accordingly.
