Many organizations have chosen 3DEXPERIENCE as the enterprise PLM platform, but many of their local sites are still using SolidWorks PDM as the CAD data management tool.Platform.
The other category of the organizations is those who chose SolidWorks PDM when their design teams were small, but as the organizations grew, needs of Enterprise PLMs are felt for Design engineering collaborating across sites, across countries.For these organizations, 3DEXPERIENCE as strategic single platform to manage CAD and PLM business processes and leverage 3DEXPREINCE platform services such as Social Collaboration, reuse of design parts, Program Management, Configuration Management, 3D model comparison for BOMs comparison, Index based fast searches, Connectors with ERP systems and so on.
SteepGraph’s SolidWorks PDM Migration adapter is one of the adapter from overall 3DEXPEREINCE data migration suite. It migrates SolidWorks PDM data to 3DEXPERIENCE platform. The adapter is robust and industry strength tool, built considering the challenges and requirements of the Migrations.
The migration adapter supports migration of various kinds of data to 3DEXPERIENCE platform
The migration adapter supports mapping of data between SolidWorks PDM to 3DEXPREINCE:
The migration supports both kinds of data scopes
Full data in scope:In this case entire data from SolidWorks PDM including all revisions and versions is migrated
Subset of the data: For example, Latest Released data to be migrated. Note that it is very important to maintain structural integrity of the data, when migrating subset of the data.
In terms of execution, the Migration adapter supports execution models as listed below:
SolidWorks Migrator is based on very extensible and scalable framework for migration. The framework has below capabilities to have high throughput of the migration and minimize the migration window.
When actual migration is run, it is important to get visibility of the migration progress. To provide the up to date progress, Migration Monitoring Console is provided.
