IQMS, a manufacturing ERP software and MES developer, announced the release of its SolidWorks product data management add-in. From within the SolidWorks menu, users can link parts, tools and other assembly file details and configurations to create engineering change orders (ECOs) and cross-populate the inventory, bills of material (BOMs), project management and preventative maintenance modules in EnterpriseIQ for increased productivity and elimination of data inconsistency.
Additionally, IQMS has incorporated the secure document and revision control system features already developed in EnterpriseIQ. Now, from inside SolidWorks, users can use the EnterpriseIQ document control system to check documents in and out to avoid overwriting changes, create workflows to ensure that sign-offs occur in a timely manner, manage document libraries, view and print SolidWorks PDFs from within EnterpriseIQ and track document history.
