  4. 4. CAD Data ManagementBusiness Drivers CAD data is a key component of product design  It drives a large percentage of enterprise product development However it tends not to be leveraged well across the organization because:  Data is isolated in local workgroup managers  Designers are wary of sharing data early  Lack of effective workflow processes for co-design with multiple sites  Competing ownership between Engineering and IT Unlocking CAD data for the enterprise is a key part of any PLM initiative CAM View & Virtual Analysis Markup Prototyping CAD Design Tech Pubs EBOM Digital Mockup Work Instructions Copyright © 2012 Aras.
