Solid Edge: Data management

Transparent design management

Solid Edge offers a scalable design management solution from one user to thousands.

Enjoy built-in data management for instantaneous searches, easy revision and release management, and optional cloud based vaulting. Get up and running in as little as an hour, and have the flexibility to grow to full PLM capabilities with Teamcenter.

Built-in Solid Edge data management

  • Do it yourself data management with no IT resources required. No SQL software to install or database tables to maintain
  • Index your Solid Edge files and get started immediately with instant searches for files and properties and instant impact analysis
  • Revise and release files with a few mouse clicks, no need for complex workflow


SharePoint based solutions

What is the advantage to a typical Solid Edge user of basing their design data management on SharePoint? Well SharePoint provides a familiar and consistent environment similar to that of Microsoft Office, one that is easy to learn, use and personalize.

SharePoint 2010 Foundation is included with Windows Server 2008 so most manufacturing organizations already have this software in-house.

Teamcenter based solutions

Teamcenter is the world’s leading PLM platform with more than 5 million licenses. Solid Edge users integrate to either Teamcenter or Teamcenter Rapid Start using the Solid Edge Embedded Client (SEEC) that enables transparent completion of many tedious data management tasks. Teamcenter is for companies requiring a complete PLM solution that can be customized to meet any need.

Teamcenter Rapid Start is a preconfigured version of Teamcenter that is easy-to-deploy and easy-to-use and enables data to be managed across multiple departments, sites, and design systems.
