of related documents Updating drawings & documents Creating & maintaining revisions User management

Core functions Data vault & document management : provides secure storage & retrieval of product definition info.
Electronic vault is used to control product info. Types of data stored: - Product data generated in various applications
& Meta-data, which is data about PDM controlled info. Typical info stored as metadata are part number, date, revision
& file location. Supports Check-in & out to provide secure storage & access control. To ensure documents achieve
right status in its life cycle various pre-defined approval processes is used. Document management contains meta-
data tht stores info about prduct data so, chnges, release levels, approvl authorizations cn b tracked & audited.
Product structure management (Configuration Management):- PSM facilitates creation & management of product
configurations & BOM. PDM system tracks configuration changes of versions, effectivities & design variations. It allows
user & applications to link product definition data to parts & product structures, which allows users to easily
determine which info that will be affected by changes. PSM provides customised views of product info for different
usrs. PSM support transfr of product structure & othr data between PDM & enterprise resource plannin(ERP) systms.
Work flow management: - Work flow is movement of documents & tasks during the course of a project -Tracking
of the documents & tasks at various stages can be performed easily -Alerts can be generated for particular tasks
-PDM allows user to specify, execute, monitor & coordinate tasks in a work flow. Workflow & process management:-
PDM can interact with people that work with product data accrding to predefined processes of an enterprise to
achieve corporate objectives. Repetitive workflows & processes can be programmed as part of a PDM system to route
data & work packages automatically, to control & monitor processes, & to provide mnagement reporting. PDM system
controls process & procedures that manage how changes are proposed, reviewed, & approved & incorporated into a
product & its associated data items. Parts management (Classification):- Classification of parts allows similar parts,
processes, & other design info to be grouped by common attributes & retrieved for use in products. This lead to
product standardization, reduced redesign, savings in purchasing & fabrication, & less reinvention of wheel.
Program management:- This coordinates framework of project that deliver product to market. It provides work
breakdown structures (WBS) & allows resource scheduling & project tracking. Program management provides ability
to relate WBS tasks to the PDM systems knowledge of approval & product configurations. Tasks that are required to
complete the project are ordered within work breakdown structures, which can also be grouped into hierarchical
structures of dependencies. This provides a way to allocate resources & track progress. When project, actual used
resources r recorded against the plan. Completion of activities for each task is tracked & reported through approval.
Utility Functions: Communication & notification-Users of PDM systems can automatically be notified of critical
events concerning current state of project or product. PDM minimizes delays caused by misplaced communication. A
trigger functionality is used spawn notifications & other actions automatically. Data transport- Users do not need to
knw where data is stord while systm keeps tracks of data location & allows usrs to access it knwing only data name.
Data translation - Data translators can be pre-defined to convert data between different applications & to formats
for various display & output devices. These data translations can be done automatically by triggers. Visualization -
Image viewing allows usrs to view drawings & other design data without need of expensive application software.
Image service enhances productivity by facilitating exchange of info & comments among users. Collaboration -
Collaboration, between different units across geographically distributed sites, becomes possible with many
technologies employed in PDM systems. Examples of technologies are e-mail, audio- & teleconferencing, &
collaborative visualization tools. These technologies are designed to support distributed teams to synchronously work G-Code Part Programming: N: number of command G: preparatory coms (X: coordints along x, Y: co.s alo y, Z: co.s

interacting with graphical representation of the product structure to find key data. Another benefit is that PDM
workflows accelerate the review and approval of change packages, resource allocation and monitoring, new design,
design alternatives exploration and process capability evaluation. By monitoring parts and documents status level,
PDM facilitates rapid change early in the design cycle, but ensures security and control when design stabilizes.
Implementing PDM allows smooth data flow between design and other involved departments.
