Active Sensing (ASI) has released the PDXpert PLM 2010 Edition product lifecycle management software, which includes a bill-of-materials Markup Wizard, file-content indexing and other enhancements.

The Markup Wizard easily modifies multiple bills of materials (BOMs) in one simple workflow.

It can automatically add, replace and remove components on assemblies and will create new BOM revisions as needed to support these changes.

It discovers and displays all component ‘where-used’ instances to ensure that each affected bill of materials is correctly updated as intended.

The new 2010 edition of PDXpert PLM software also introduces file-content searches.

PDXpert has always provided free-form text searches of parts, documents and change forms contained in the PLM database.

PDXpert PLM 2010 Edition uses Microsoft Windows Search 4.0 components to index common file formats (text, HTML, RTF and ZIP).

Plug-ins for other file formats – such as Adobe PDF and Office 2007 – as well as for more specialised engineering file formats for CAD files, can be installed as needed.

PDXpert software’s search syntax includes Booleans and wildcards.

PDXpert PLM 2010 Edition can now convert one document or part type into another and has user-defined rules that prevent assigning duplicate part or document numbers.

System WAN performance has improved with more local caching.

Other improvements include 64-bit SQL Server and Windows support.

PDXpert has been tested with the upcoming releases of Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2.

The system-help files, which are now also available on-line, detail step-by-step procedures for operational and administrative functions.

ASI’s product website continues to offer a simple PLM software experience.

It provides free, fully functional trial software via download; helpful on-line training materials; attractive published pricing; and flexible perpetual- and subscription-based licensing alternatives.
