CAD file storage ?.

Post by jackyjoy123 »

Hello,


I am looking for a CAD data management system and it looks like OpenKM may do the trick, but I wanted to ask a few questions before I try to set it up...

1. I will be storing CAD files in several different formats. Can OpenKM handle binary files that it does not recognize?
2. I need the ability to access the files in the repository (as read only) without the use of OpenKM. In other words, does OpenKM store files on the file system or in a database?
3. I need the ability to lock files so that multiple users don\'t check out the same files and work on them.

Can OpenKM do all of these things?


thanks
jackyjoy

1- Can store any file type ( any binary data ), there's no kind of restriction on it
2- Files are stored in the file system ( if you decide on another application, never use the database to store binary data, forget this kind of idea -> because bad performance sure and the purpose of the database is not to store binary data -> the detailed explanation in deep will be large).
3- Can be implemented bulk edition if you need. It comes with standard bulk, but can be implemented one based on CAD referenced links ( currently is not implemented but some customer asked for it )
