Smart Teams Break Free of Their Chains

Unlock Your Multi-CAD Data With PLM

When access to CAD data is limited to CAD designers, the only users who can realize the value of visualization, collaboration, and coordinated change based on highly intuitive, graphical representations of the product are the users who created those representations in the first place. In this white paper, we look at the current CAD and PDM landscapes and outline the impact of an unconnected CAD environment. Then we examine the benefits of integrating CAD data into a PLM system and the importance of a digital thread that connects that data with departments, the extended enterprise, and the supply chain.
