Changing the SOLIDWORKS PDM State Through a Process Output

  1. In the Process Management wizard, navigate to the Properties page.
  2. In the diagram area, select a stage, and then an output node.
  3. Click New and select Change PDM status from the list.
  4. In the Change State Output dialog box, click , and select PDM Object, Workflow, From State, and Transition from the lists.
  5. Click Save and Close.
  6. Optional: Add any additional state changes as required for this stage output and click Close in the Change State Output dialog box.
