PDM systems were created in the mid-1980s. The main goal was to organize the drawings and data sheets, which were created during the designing process. Integration of PDM and CAD led to a situation where an increasing number of features were required from the systems to help the designers. Finally, this situation developed to a point where no one was… CONTINUE READING
