Z PLM includes facilities for managing personal and enterprise/supply chain data in an easy and controlled manner with My Repository and Common Repository. My Repository is usually used by users for managing data before it is ready for sharing with others in the organization or the supply chain. Common Repository on the other hand is used to share information in an easy and controller manner with others in the organization.
Each user of Z PLM gets his/her own repository for managing data. Data in this repository is only visible and accessible to the user. Users can keep documents, parts and forms in the folders of My Repository.
Common Repository can be used to share data with others in the organization. Common Repository is accessible to everyone in the organization. However, folder level security is available for Common Repository and can be used to easily define read/write/delete access to specific folders for individual users, roles and groups.
