This is a Wiki dedicated to SMARTEAM, a PLM (or 'product lifecycle management') tool used by engineering and manufacturing companies to manage their design information. Its a great tool, but lacks sufficient documentation, so I am hoping to start a grassroots documentation effort for it here.

Background Information Edit

SMARTEAM is a Windows-based PLM system owned by SmarTeam (a Dassault Systems subsidiary) and used with major CAD tools like CATIA, SolidWorks, AutoCAD, Inventor, SolidEdge, Pro/Engineer, and Unigraphics. Its core functionality developed from a file management tool for CAD systems, but various SMARTEAM modules extend its capabilities into areas like automated workflow, BOM management and program (project) management. SmarTeam (the company) offers other modules for SMARTEAM (the product) to extend its architecture, including integrations to MS Office, MS Project, Viso and others. There are modules to provide web interfaces into the system, to provide a portal for supply chain collaboration, and to make the system available asynchronously across multiple sites.

Its main goal is to be able to organise and maintain revision control of all the data (not just CAD) connected to a product from its inital conception through its entire life until it is obsolete.

How-To Edit

SMARTEAM is complex software requiring the interoperation of several other complex pieces of software like Oracle, SQL Server, DB2, LUM, IIS, Websphere, Microsoft Indexing Service, etc. Because there is often more to the installation or upgrade of the system than the documentation describes, it may be helpful to reference this information:
