SolidWorks Enterprise PDM software was identified as an efficient solution for an industrial client’s requirement for an integrated product data management system.
ABCO Automation, Inc. develops fast, reliable and cost-effective automation solutions for packaging systems. Their products include four-head fillers that can process 60 bags of liquid soap per minute for refillable dispensers.
ABCO provides comprehensive industrial automation and fabrication services to manufacturers in a variety of industries.
Having experienced dramatic growth, ABCO needed an integrated product data management software solution to manage their expansion.
After evaluating several PDM packages including Autodesk Vault, EDS Teamcenter and SolidWorks Enterprise PDM software, ABCO chose SolidWorks Enterprise PDM because it was more tightly integrated with SolidWorks CAD software, included better administration tools and could be installed in days.
Chip Montgomery, ABCO Team Leader says that the PDM implementation has enabled them to ramp up to automate their processes, eliminate waste and remove unnecessary costs.
Key benefits derived by ABCO from SolidWorks PDM software:
- Shortened design cycles by 30 percent
- Accelerated time-to-market by 20 percent
- Reduced development costs by 20 percent
- Cut scrap and rework costs by 50 percent
