Some of our parts contain multiple configurations which have different BOM description (e.g. 10100001____part_widget) The BOM description is usually the configuration name, but can sometimes be user set, or can be document name

It's confusing between these 2 variables. Can someone here please explain? "Current state" is a special variable in PDM.

My company has never used saved BOMs or computed BOMs. Prior to EPDM our BOMs were just linked tables on our drawings, and we've continued to use that paradigm. Today, I'm trying to clear out some old, unused (so I'd thought) workflows, and to delete them I need to be sure there are no files that are or have ever been in any state in those workflows.

On one user VaultView, all the options in the "Actions" is grey out - I already checked the "Checkout" in the folder and state permissions for this user Any idea what causes this?

Use thePermissions per Foldertab of theFolder Permissionspage to give group members permissions to specific folders. You can also use theAssigned Folder Permissionstab to view and modify folder permissions. I read the help file and am confusing - what's the diff. ?

Can Multiple versions of Solidworks (2015-2018) work with a 2018 PDM Pro vault? We just upgraded to 2018 sp2 but have a few older projects that need to stay in older versions of Solidworks to be able to share data with customers. I'd prefer to keep these older projects in the vault.

We're doing a start up and got our entrepreneur licenses and everything in order. Being familiar with EPDM from my day job, I know that it will be a big plus (actually a necessity) for us as the models and product documentation is now starting to pile up. Also we need a proper workflow, revisioning etc. However, the solutions I have heard of are either expensive or too time consuming (VAR or own server solution).

We have problem with ePDM(ver. 17.5 (B89)). We are using SW 2017 SP5. It seems that one worker can not check in one assembly file. ePDM gives error:" The filename, which needs to be unique in the file vault, has been used before".

I'm having trouble finding what permission I'm missing for a particular group in PDM. When a user in this group drags files into the vault, they show as grayed out local files, and nothing happens when you right click> 'Add to File Vault'. There's no error message, and the file stays gray. I've checked the folder and state permissions, and the Adding Files settings (that the file type is listed as one that should be added).

From what I have read EPDM allows users to select/view different BOM (computed, named, SolidWorks) and different BOM column layouts (using the admin tool to create a BOM layout for purchasing, and another for engineering). To select a different BOM (named, computed, SolidWorks) or BOM layout an individual selects the "Bill of Materials" tab, then click the "BOM Type" selection box and select the BOM you wish to view. I have created an assembly and inserted a BOM table into the assembly (insert--

Is it possible to have two separate vaults, with different kinds of information, that communicate with each other? It depends on what sort of communication you are thinking of. Each PDM vault has its own separate SQL database, recording the history of each file, metadata, user information, etc.

This my first post. I am an EPDM admin. We currently have our ECN/Spec workflow set up so that when a CAD drawing is issued, it is converted to a pdf and saved to a specific folder location depending on certain variables and parameters. The pdf is then issued and people are notified etc..
