What is Product Data Management?

Product Data Management is a software package that allows organizations to securely and efficiently store and recall key product information at all times. The toolset allows multiple users to access and manage master data, as well as new and updated versions of product information.

In engineering and design teams, the use of PDM tools is crucial because users are constantly involved in tweaking the parameters of a product to ensure that accuracy and efficiency are maintained throughout the development of new features.


Studies indicate that engineers who don’t work with Product Data Management systems are forced to dedicate as much as 25% more time and effort to data management tasks that take away from their productivity. This means that organizations can make themselves far more efficient by simply implementing a PDM system into their workflow. These tools make saving and finding essential files far simpler. Moreover, teams that don’t work in the same physical location won’t be hamstrung by local storage solutions and collaboration issues.

Working within the native PDM environment also ensures that your data quality will improve. Saving and storing all of your files within a central repository ensures that team members across the organization are utilizing best practices for data creation and alteration, further improving organizational efficiency as a byproduct.
