Keynote Address: Customizing PDMWorks 2004 to Adapt to Your Workflow, by Michael LaFleche - Technical Account Manager - SolidVision
PDMWorks is well known within the CAD community to be the easiest to use Document Management system that the industry has witnessed. However, implementing it properly to match your needs is critical for the success of your Document Management system. It requires some forethought about the way information flows throughout your organization. PDMWorks includes tools to help you attain success and that is what will be covered in this session.
Attendees to this session will gain knowledge of the tools that come with PDMWorks 2004 out of the box that make a successful implementation of PDMWorks realistic. You will also gain a clear understanding of Lifecycle tools and applications of the "Advanced Server" application from PDMWorks.

VBA - Behind the Curtain, Guy Edkins, The Delta Group View creative tools to take a SW assembly structure and create a cost- Excel BOM with hyperlinks to the actual SW files. Since Excel now can create HTML directly one can then create a intranet/internet webpage that is useable by anyone with a browser that links directly to the SW objects (no matter where the files are are on the network) and the SW files appear directly in the browser to boot! It's slick and has real world advantages for people.
