My students are moaning at me for docking up to 5% for poor file management in their projects, I'm trying to emphasise to them that in a commercial environmentthey can have the most fantastic assemblies in the world but if it all falls over and no one can access them thenit was all for nothing, agreed?
BTW, my students are more likely to go on tobe project managers rather than the front line part designers,
One more point to impress on them. With many PLM systems it is not just design access now. Their poor data management will affect configuration management, sales, supplier management, partners in joint ventures, EBOMs, MBOM, and the list goes on. PLM is a business system not just an engineering system.
