How Much Time Are You Wasting Managing Data?

Back to Blog

On average, engineers spend 15% of their time reviewing and managing data. Some even waste up to the equivalent of one day a week or more.

With many engineering and manufacturing tools on the Windows platform, engineers feel that Windows should be plenty when it comes to managing data. The reality is, Windows Explorer wasn’t made for engineers. 

Do you spend a large portion of your time dealing with following?

  • Sifting through thousands of files – Finding specific files is a challenge for you. You spend time tracking down the person who used the file last, making sure this is even the file you need in your project.
  • You dread copying or renaming files – Renaming and copying files can lead to huge headaches in the future if not done correctly. Even further, you end up needing to repair broken references.
  • Overwritten files – You worry that collaboration with other engineers will lead to issues such as the team overwriting various files, extending the length of time to complete a simpler project task.
  • Manually maintaining spreadsheets – You spend time managing a spreadsheet to document every instance parts and sub-assemblies are used.

If any of the above situations applies to you and your team, you need to consider a file manager made just for engineers. Product Data Management (PDM) exists as this tool – built by engineers for engineers.
