3 use cases for branching in CAD data management

3 use cases for branching in CAD data management

Yesterday, my attention was caught by Develop3D article  – Data management related tools. Al Dean is sharing his thoughts about new data management features in CAD / PDM – branching. Although some old PDM systems supported branching for revisions and lifecycle, it was not a very popular feature because integration…

PLM graph-aware architecture and search for data

PLM graph-aware architecture and search for data

In many ways, one of the most important functions in every PLM system is a capability to interconnect multi-disciplinary data about products and processes. Almost every PLM project I was exposed to had to deal with the complexity of data modeling – defining all business objects, attributes, relationships, dependencies. There are…

Cloud data management – common future for PLM and BIM?

Cloud data management – common future for PLM and BIM?

PLM vs BIM – united or separated? You might remember my article published few years ago. Also, please check PLM vs BIM – common or different. Despite PLM and BIM have many common things, both disciplines were separated for many years. And if you look on all available tools today, PLM and…

Future CAD competition will be about data management and networks

Future CAD competition will be about data management and networks

For many years, CAD competition was heavily focused on geometrical features and modeling. Still 3D modeling capabilities is a very important factor. But, the world has shrunk by the Internet. Small companies now have global reach and competition is taking new trajectories. In a new global environment, competitive pressure on…

3 reasons PDM implementation can cost you more than you expected

3 reasons PDM implementation can cost you more than you expected

Engineers don’t like PDM (product data management) and consider it as an unnecessarily evil. At the same time, complexity of data in engineering environment is skyrocketing. Companies are losing time and money on searching and organizing engineering data. As a result, many manufacturing companies are looking how better organize engineering and…

The challenges of distributed BOM handover in data-driven manufacturing

The challenges of distributed BOM handover in data-driven manufacturing

Disclosure: As a co-founder of openBoM, I understand that my opinion and thoughts about future challenges can be unintentionally biased. Nevertheless, I believe the topic itself is very important, so I decided to share the information and my opinion anyway. Manufacturing is changing these days. While you can hear lot…
