PDXpert PLM Feature Reviews

Simon Harrison

Engineering Data Organised - At Last!

2011-12-22

Computer assisted design and drafting systems (CAD) are nice to have, but in my experience a good Product Lifecycle Management System (PLM) is essential.

Pros

Logical layout of windows makes finding and using data easy. Excellent search function.

Cons

Therefore we are looking for a replacement Business / Accounting system that can synchronize part data with PDXpert either using PDXpert's standardized database system (preferably) or via a custom data integration program.

PDXpert - Functionality We Needed with the Best Value Available

2020-02-27

Our previous system was very outdated with a DOS-like interface and the need to manipulate data in multiple data modules.

Pros

Data migration was simple using the built-in data import tools.

Cons

About the only thing is that some of the built-in functionality such as most of the information on the Attributes tab is hard coded and cannot be hidden if it is not used. However, we have just instructed our users to disregard this information and it hasn't caused any confusion.

The user interface could use some modernization.

Mike Vega

Very impressed with the functionality and value!

2018-05-08

Not only am I very satisfied with the software, it has been very easy to show others who have not been exposed to a PLM system how to use it.

Pros

There are some real time-savers built in like Snapshot and Convert...good stuff.

Cons

I am a new user and still learning a lot. I would like to see more drag and drop from open records instead of pulling them from the Item Explorer. That's it.

A work in progress

2012-01-09

I consider PDXpert a work in progress and Active Sensing a company that is very in-tune with their customers. Over the three years I worked with the program, I saw great improvements and no doubt better ones on the way. The level of support I received over those three years has been world class. Any small issue I had was quickly addressed and suggestions I made were not only taken seriously but actually put in subsequent releases of the program. From what I've seen, the program runs well on "lesser" computers (assuming you have a decent network) which would make the program perfect for small and medium sized companies.

Pros

1.Quick Searches using Internet type search techniques 2. 5 Star Support ; the level of support I received was like having a direct line to the engineering dept. Questions were handled quickly directly or through our IT dept. 3. Customer feedback was solicited, taken and often incorporated into future releases. 4. Short learning curve got me up and running quickly.

Cons

No method of creating specialized reports internally at this time.

Initial assessment of software for clients new division

2012-04-12

Given this the investment in time to enter the data will pay significant dividends as the number of product lines increase and I would certainly recommend PDXpert for anyone running just such a business.

Pros

The ability to hold information within one database and produce quick reports giving key financial and material data is something that is just not possible easily with spreadsheets often used by smaller enterprises.

Cons

This could pose a problem if it occurred when fully installed as it gave concern about the integrity of the data entered the first time it occurred.

Excellent software for document and part revision control

2018-08-03

Pros

We use PDXpert only for part and document revision control, although it has some inventory/cost capabilities, we don't use them so I can't speak on that.

Cons

Nothing, PDXpert is perfect for our needs

Very easy to use and deploy, customer support is fast and extremely knowledgeable

2018-05-10

Pros

Excellent features for PLM and change control with optional workflows pre-configured. 21CFR11 Compliance for GMP operations.

Cons

Maximum PDX output package is 2GB, we have files for products exceeding this limit. We are currently investigating options to compress files. Not the most intuitive for customization.

PDXpert is the greatest

2019-03-01

It is full featured PLM. I came from the medical device world and this product would have easily fit there too.

Pros

This software was easy to implement.

Cons

Tool is windows based so occasionally the UI is clunky but it does what it needs to do.

Absolutely the most feature packed PLM I've used

2018-05-14

Enables us to properly control all facets of product configuration of a rapidly expanding number of products.

Pros

Very well organized SQL Database structure which eases integration with Engineering and MRP/ERP systems.

Cons

Would like to see the user interface available as a Web App permitting retrieval and viewing of information in a browser.

Review Title

2010-07-09

We are using this product more and more. So far working very well for us.

Pros

Ed Alwein is the best. I think the licensing scheme is very fair and non-intrusive.

Cons

I don't think the application does not play very well with multiple monitors. Would really like to have the record windows float outside the main application area.

PDX Software did exactly what I needed it to

2018-08-09

I have worked closely who has been spectacular. customer service was prompt in responding and helping me with understanding the system and figuring out how to do certain things I needed to do. I could not ask for better customer service.

Pros

I did not use the full functionality of the software since I was using it to develop Bills of Material for a company that had never implemented an ERP system.

Cons

There are a few features I needed that were very specific to what I was trying to accomplish. I would not really expect the software to do those things so it took some custom programming which was done at a very reasonable cost and was completed on a timely basis.

Best Bang for the Buck

2020-07-08

Fantastic !! The most impressive thing was the lack of issues we experienced during our migration. The support and direction from the folks at PDXpert made an extremely daunting task seem simple. The entire process was complete in less then 3 months and we have never looked back. Life is good with PDXpert PLM.

Pros

The system is extremely intuitive with a well developed with a friendly user interface. Product support is fantastic and knowledgeable.

Cons

It's difficult to find any faults with the system.

Full featured PLM, with a fairly easy interface system

2018-05-08

Allowed us to move away from a simple and very limited in-house system. It was easy and quick to roll out across the company.

Pros

The flexibility of the database to incorporate customer fields and other items needed to tailor the systems. Ease of installation.

Cons

We use the system globally and sometimes the speed of operation is slow, even over fairly fast network connections.
