Product data management (PDM) tools are software systems that help businesses manage large volumes of product data and documentation. PDM tools typically provide a central repository for storing and managing product data, as well as tools for collaborating on that data and for automating some of the processes associated with managing product data.
There are a number of different PDM tools on the market, each with its own unique features and capabilities. Some of the more popular PDM tools include:
- Aras PLM
- Autodesk Vault
- Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS PDM
- PTC Windchill PDMLink

PDM tools can be used to manage data for any type of product, from simple mechanical parts to complex electronics.
