2017 Variable Search Logic Errors We recently upgraded to 2017 PDM and I just noticed that several of our favorite searches no longer work. The searches were working fine before the upgrade, but now they don't return anything.

We want to be able to overwrite the version on our library files so that when trivial changes are made, everyone isn't getting newer version flags because of their screws, but I can't convince PDM to allow users to do it. For example, the Admin account has every permission, including: Yet when I try to check a library part back in, the overwrite latest version checkbox is still grayed out.

My problem is mainly with Assemblies with multiple derived configurations. When I go to check in an assembly with 3 tiers of configurations, so a configuration derived from a configuration derived from the origional model, it always gives me a warning saying my assmbly is not rebuilt with (Configuration x, y and z) in brackets after. Does this mean I can never have a newly rebuilt assembly like this checked in?

I am new to a PDM systems so it could be some simple setting that I am missing but every time I type in a file name (part number) it seems to pull up every file that is in the vault some of which have nothing to do with what I am looking for. Any help would be appreciated. Are you using one of the default search cards that come with EPDM or something else?

Work offline mode doesn't save lower level parts I'm trying to load files to work on while I'm offsite without PDM access, so I'm trying to use "work offline". While I'm 'online', I can click on the Assy that I want to work on, and Get Latest, and then Check Out.

In EPDM, our model and drawing variables are set such that when you create a drawing from a model the variables from the model are carried over to the drawing. But it only, automatically populates "@" tab on the data card of the drawing. The sheet 1 Tab gets only the file name and other variables are empty.

As you all know, Workgroup PDM is being phased out over the next two releases. I've decided to get a jump on this and switch over now rather than waiting until this time 2 years from now. But I have some questions about general best practices for setting up a PDM system. Is there any such document laying out best practices for those of us starting with a blank slate?

Why would a small company ever use PDM Standard BOM functionality? Seems like a major complication. Also I believe (not sure) the BOM in PDM is different from the drawing BOM?
