Using PDM to Maintain PDF Revisions of Drawings

When you look at most organizations who design using CAD tools, almost all use the .PDF format to share files with others. The .PDF file format is easy to share, works consistently and most everyone has access to software to open them.

The problem that most companies face with this process is that someone has to manage these files. Doing this requires someone to know where it needs to be placed, whether to overwrite and old version of the .PDF or, move it.
