ZW has it's own PDM built in. It is called the Vault. May not be as complicated or all embracing as Windchill but it is no additional cost and works directly with ZW and manages the most important part- document traceability and currency.

The better question is what software does Windchill support?

Your question is asked more correct than mine :)
But I don't have this info. By default Windchill support PTC Creo Parametric and other products from PTC.

The only functionality that I miss from the build in file-managing features is to trace/find out in which files a specific part is used.

For example I have a part "screw xy". Then I have 200 zw3d-files. I want to find out in which of these 200 files (and of course in which of the contained models) the part "screw xy" is used. As far as I know this is not possible at the moment, right?

Hello.

Old thread, but I´d rather lift this up than make a new one.

So, I would like to ask you if there´s possibility to generate drawing numbers in ZW3D:s PDM? If not, is there any partner product which might can generate the item numbers, and maybe also help to fill up the attributes of the new files automatically. In my company SW uses custom tools add-on between ERP system and SW to synchronize those item numbers and other attributes.

For my own upcoming small start-up company, I do not want to acquire a heavyweight corporate ERP system. I just wan to somehow organize my projects and files with synchronizing those attributes to ZW3D.

Hello Mike, ZW3D has been looking for a good PDM partner, and now has found a good one, which may meet your requirement, now we are trying to test it. There is possibility that it would be with ZW3D 2018 version if the test is smoothly going. But at present we cannot offer more information here, hope you could understand.

Ok, that sounds a worth wait for.There is already a some cloud based lightweight ERP systems available with material file numbering for smaller entrepreneurs. I`ll just hope that integration to upcoming ZW3D PDM is easy job to do...

Is this by any chance the GAIN collaboration PDM software?
https://www.gain.de/language/product-data-management-pdm/

It is not a secret that they offer a ZW3D interface plug in.
However, I wonder how much it is worth to give it a try, IF ZW3D should officially promote a different solution in the future?? Does anybody know more about this?
