This is a very good question!

We would create more than 30.000 Projects per Year, is that a Problem for the PDM?

I hope someone have Information about that...

what we do is have an overall folder by customer

then we have a folder for each job

and in that folder is one project for the job with all the components/assemblies for that job.

in the project we can break down and separate as we see fit.

Our jobs have from one to 40 or 50 individual parts and 1 or 2 assemblies ( we are a Tool & Die shop )

but we can't filter by customer.
Which is the recommended procedure , in CAM for ca.20000 articles (parts)
In NC-manufactoring are 30 different cnc's

Then filter by major product line.

and you can also make projects in different vaults that could be on different harddisks.
