PDM other than Intralink


New member
Just curious here, is anyone using a PDM besides Intralink?

Is anyone not using a PDM system for revision control?

It just makes me mad to find out that a complex piece of software like Pro/E doesn't have a way to revision files without the need for a PDM system.

Sorry to 'Rant & Rave'

There is a simple data management system for Pro/E called DesignDataManager (DDM).

Its been around since the days of PT/Modeler.

If you need simple Vaulting and revision control, then DDM will do the job for you. Plus its releatively cheap with no Admin' overheads.
