SharePoint

March 11, 2008 18 Comments »

The company I work for has recently implemented Microsoft SharePoint 2007 for our internal intranet.  I am pretty new to the software but have found it very interesting to say the least.  I’ll report more here as I learn more about the software and its collaboration capabilities.  One of the things I am most excited about is a SharePoint site that I will soon have access to that will allow better collaboration in sharing data and communicating with our customers.

If any of your “Power Users” out there with SharePoint have any recommendations or comments on your experiences with it, I would love to hear it.

Stay tuned….more to come!

  • Ricky,
    I used SharePoint at my last company and found it to be a great tool, assuming everyone, who was supposed to, used it. It's easy to set up and manage, and a great way to store documents that need to be revision managed or just controlled.
    I'm sure you'll have no problems figuring it out.

    Ricky,

    We are looking to install WSS and possbily MOSS 2007 on our intranet. Our engineers use SolidWorks and are looking for a document management solution. Have you had any experience using the two applications together? If so, I would be interested in your feedback.

    Thank you,

  • Pam,

    The only package I have found that supports SharePoint with SolidWorks is Brava! from Informative Graphics. I know nothing about the capabilities or features of this software at this point so explore at your own risk. :-)

    Please e-mail me using the link at the top left hand corner of the page when you get a chance and we can discuss it more.

    Best Regards,

    Do any of you have further experience now with Sharepoint and SolidWorks?

  • Chris,

    Do you mean using Sharepoint as a PDM tool for SolidWorks? If so, I would highly recommend against that, as Sharepoint knows nothing of SolidWorks file relationships.

    Talk to Rich Hall, his company was trying to force them to use Sharepoint instead of a SolidWorks/CAD-centric PDM solution.

  • Hi Chris,

    We are headed towards using Enterprise PDM for managing our SolidWorks data. We are currently using Workgroup PDM.

    Sharepoint has proven to be a good tool for sharing office type documents in our design groups but as Brian mentioned, it doesn't understand the SolidWorks file relationships at all. Brava! (The product I mentioned in a comment above) at one time had something posted to their site about SolidWorks integration with Sharepoint but now it only appears to be a viewer.

    I have also found that Sharepoint's user interface doesn't seem to match up with most CAD based PDM packages I have seen.

    That's all the information I have for now. If I see anything else on it, I'll let you know.
