Integration of electrical project data within PDM systems

Enables integration of electrical project data within PDM systems. Designed to work with generic PDM / PLM links, customization is available for advanced integration in PDM systems. It enables PDM to control data access, manage revision control and full documentation through new automated capabilities.
This elecworks™ module allows connection to the entire existing PDM system to be able to archive project data (schemes, reports, etc.) in different formats (DWG/PDF/Excel) so other services can be consulted for specific needs: for example, access to electrical schemes for the cable operator, access to reports for a buyer, etc.
Files from elecworks™ libraries (ie dwg symbols, sldprt parts) can be handled by the vault by changing the directory of those files in the application settings.
Users may define where auto-exported documents will reside. Each document type may be selected for export, or not, and may have it’s own directory structure.
Available export types are:
Advanced export options exist for each type and include output formats (.xls, .txt, etc…) and specific document selection.
With generic integration, users define which files he wants to export in only one direction. Example: When validating a revision of a project, saving it to a given PDM directory (archive + pdf + excel BOM…).
Target directory is managed by a PDM system. Once the export is complete the user may open the directory and do manually check-in / check-out operations in addition to other PDM features.
Basic generic integration requires 3 steps shown in the image below:
