What is product data management (PDM)?

Product data management centralizes design data and engineering processes in one location, saving time and effort for all involved in the product lifecycle. You can quickly find and reuse files, track revisions, collaborate, and share product data beyond engineering to improve downstream processes and workflows.

Improve design workflows and data sharing beyond engineering

Work efficiently with accurate, timely data and collaborate with others.

Central source of organized data for collaboration

Ensure people are working with the most up to date information in a system that automatically tracks changes, maintains past file versions, and captures the entire history of designs and product data.

  • Control what people can access and edit based on their roles
  • Use check-in and check-out to prevent overwritten work
  • Perform automatic backups to prevent data loss

Connecting people, processes, and data

Centralized product data is available within and beyond engineering, which eliminates bottlenecks and improves product lifecycle processes. You can manage all file types and any information related to a product with PDM, including documents, spreadsheets, images, PDFs, CAD data, and associated metadata.

  • Provide access to the files and information everyone needs
  • Automate data transfer between departments and business systems
  • Collaborate across departments, divisions, and geographies
  • Share data with customers, manufacturing suppliers, and design contractors

Concurrent design and faster product development

Work without interruption with seamless integration between your Autodesk design tools and product data management. Product data in a single system allows cross-functional teams to design concurrently without overwriting files—as opposed to sharing product information through email, spreadsheets, and other isolated, manual methods that lead to lost data.

  • Quickly find and reuse data so you don’t have to start from scratch
  • Track changes, revisions, and design history automatically as you work
  • Gain time with intelligent geometric data search functionality

See what else you can do with PDM

  • Create engineering BOMs

    Create an engineering BOM derived from CAD design data to effectively track and communicate across departments the details of how a product was functionally designed.

  • Reduce errors and delays

    Connect engineering BOMs with other departments and business systems for greater efficiencies and to avoid manual entries which can lead to errors, poor quality, and delays.

  • Drive more standardization

    Provide CAD administrators with customizable tools to help enforce organizational standards on data creation, review, and release processes, as well as industry standards like ISO 9000 and RoHS.
