Issues Managing in a Multi-CAD Environment

Issues typically found using a PDM as a document management solution in a multi-CAD environment: many PDM systems require the full CAD application be loaded on the client (e.g., Inventor) for viewing, consuming expensive licenses, PDMs from OEMs different than the CAD program (e.g., EPDM handling AutoCAD), typically provide minimal support for those files and often cannot manage reference file relationships well and most PDM plug-ins for CAD allow file management but without automatic meta-data or reference support.
