For the most part, file-based PDM systems have been successful in preventing big mistakes, but they are not without their pitfalls. PDM requires engineers to checkout and check in design files back in “the vault,” meaning that none of their colleagues can work on the file until the first engineer is done. This kind of serial workflow inevitably slows down the product development process, particularly when there are nightmare stories of a co-worker going on vacation after forgetting to check a file back into the system. So not surprisingly, the industry survey revealed that more than 7 out of 10 product development professionals using file-based PDM/PLM systems “wish there were a better way” to prevent version control problems.
The webinar is free and lasts about one hour, including the Q&A session.
