CAD Data Management

The primary focus of a mechanical engineer or industrial designer is on creating cool and innovative products – not spending endless hours managing their design files. Yet, CAD Data Management is a vital component to an organization’s success. Unfortunately, many organizations and design teams alike say they suffer from data management challenges – controlling, accessing or sharing design data.

Far too often design teams struggle to find the CAD files they need to do their job. Or, they encounter file conflicts, uncontrolled revisions, file duplication and data loss. Additionally, many companies have problems collaborating because of difficulties sharing files with others. All of these affect your design team’s productivity.

Not only can CAD data management be frustrating, but it also places your organization’s most valuable asset, your Intellectual Property (IP), at risk.

What if there was a way to implement CAD data management simply and cost efficiently, at the same time reducing your risk?

Well you’re in luck because SPK and Associates has been implementing and optimizing CAD Design tools and PDM/PLM solutions for over 20 years — tools such as SOLIDWORKS, PTC CREO/Windchill and AutoCAD. In fact, having SPK implement CAD Data Management solutions may be easier than you think.

Our Approach to Product Lifecycle Management

Innovation

Real innovation is strategic, and potentially very small but it requires many stages to support it.  It’s obviously the most strategic piece to the puzzle.

Intelligence

Customizing applications to do the right thing at the right time and provide you with the right information needed is a foundational step for true innovation to happen.

Integration

No company works in 1 tool only.  Multiple tools and platforms are integrated to make a ‘system’ for which an organization can perform it’s business.

Infrastructure

The foundational element of technology is the infrastructure used to build the entire base of this stack and this is why we treat it as critical to our approach.
