SolidWorks and IQMS Partner Tightly

IQMS is an enterprise resource planning (ERP) and manufacturing execution systems (MES) vendor that tries to deliver as much native functionality as possible. But computer-aided design (CAD) and product data management (PDM) are highly specialist capabilities. To that end, IQMS has just released its SolidWorks PDM add-in. With more than two million license on the market, SolidWorks is an established 3D CAD application owned by Dassault Systèmes. Manufacturers use SolidWorks rendering tools to create, simulate, publish, and manage product data, parts, and tools.

From within the SolidWorks menu (without the need for a separate CAD-ERP linking program), users can link parts, tools, and other assembly file details and configurations to create engineering change orders (ECOs) and cross-populate the inventory, bills of material (BOMs), and project management and preventative maintenance modules in EnterpriseIQ ERP for increased productivity and elimination of data inconsistency. In addition, also from inside SolidWorks, users can use the EnterpriseIQ document control system to check documents in and out to avoid overwriting changes, create workflows to ensure that sign-offs occur in a timely manner, manage document libraries, view and print SolidWorks PDFs from within EnterpriseIQ, and track document history. The SolidWorks PDM add-in is compatible with the EnterpriseIQ 2011 release and later versions.
