A new whitepaper from independent research firm Tech-Clarity shows how Solid Edge users are using SharePoint based design management software to get control of their CAD files and related documents. Jim Brown from Tech-Clarity interviewed four Solid Edge customers who are all using or piloting our Microsoft SharePoint based Solid Edge SP (Solid Edge for SharePoint) design management software to find out about their experiences.
One of the customers interviewed was Theodore Turner, head of design and development at agricultural machinery manufacturer Theebo Tech. Theodore highlights the need for easy access to design data “We need a link between documents and designs, not information filed away in a folder where someone forgets about it ". Theebo Tech has been using SharePoint based design management for a number of years to get control of their Solid Edge files, starting in 2005 with our original Insight solution and moving recently to Solid Edge SP.
A summary of the whitepaper is attached here for download by our Solid Edge Community members, and the full version can be dowloaded from the Solid Edge SP web page (registration may be required for this).
