Breakdown of core features

Back to top ↑

Duro provides a range of features to teams looking for better ways to manage and centralize data.

Automated data validation

Duro’s built-in automated data validation engine scans parts and assemblies for the most common mistakes. It helps identify any risks of delays or added costs well before teams engage with suppliers. This feature allows mistakes to be caught early. Invalid part numbers, missing CAD files, and out of stock parts are all detected, letting users fix them quickly. Duro PLM Professional runs a full validation ruleset to help identify any errors or issues that could cause delays or mistakes in a production run.

CAD plugins

Duro PLM Professional’s CAD plugins allow part and assembly data to be normalized into a common format. The software provides consistent part numbering, part naming, and revising to ensure a much smoother production. The software has several plugin integrations for 3rd party CAD applications. Users can release data from external applications into the system using Duro plugins.

Change orders

The software allows team members to promote their changes for review and notification to relevant teams and suppliers. Duro’s simplified Change Order workflow lets teams quickly and efficiently highlight changes, review, and approve them. All users in the Approval List will automatically be sent an email notification with the final resolution once the Change Order is closed.
