Global Collaboration
Global Collaboration and TeamworkIt is certainly a buzzword (or buzz-phrase), but that doesn’t make “global collaboration” any less relevant.  Even Razorleaf’s smallest clients have plans for designing, building, or supporting their products globally.  With that in mind, we felt it made sense to devote one of our newsletters to this topic.  This month, look for articles on how PDM and PLM systems are extending to manage multi-site data, and how tools like 3DVIA Composer are changing the game for global communication.  Dig deeper to see all the ways in which engineering and manufacturing software tools are supporting companies’ needs to operate in distributed, multi-site environments.
