SOLIDWORKS® design software covers all aspects of product development and helps maximize your design and engineering productivity. Over 2 million designers and engineers worldwide use SOLIDWORKS to bring designs to life—from the coolest gadgets to innovations for a better tomorrow.

SOLIDWORKS Connector on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform

Product Development Challenges

When companies look around they can find evidence of complexity in the objects and processes in which they work. Millions of files that are located in various repositories, or a number of approvals that are required to get a design release, or evidence in the number of design centers or centers of excellence that make up product development organization.

  • Inability to view all relevant information among different users
  • >30% of time spent on non value added activities
  • Too much time and effort to find, access and share data
  • Costly errors due to working in disconnected silos
  • Application of security rules for designers accessing data
  • Disconnected requirements phase with design/engineering process
  • Limited collaboration among isolated, multi-discipline users

If you are using SOLIDWORKS®, adding the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform with ENOVIA® business applications yields powerful rewards.

  • Sharing product data and information in real-time across the enterprise makes for smarter and faster decisions.
  • Connecting resources, tasks and deliverables through deliverables-based project management identifies risks and accelerates time to market.

Designers gain a seamless connection to data management capabilities within the broader functionality of the PLM system.

Keep PDM simplicity while gaining PLM benefits

The SOLIDWORKS Connector delivers just the right data management functionality in a simple and familiar interface. It is directly integrated into the desktop and SOLIDWORKS interface.

With the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and ENOVIA, designers are able to preserve their existing work paradigms while enjoying the productivity gains and benefits of PLM.
