Clarizen Inc. has integrated its project management software with the Solidworks CAD tool, giving the design engineers the chance to check project status and create new tasks.

The company said it will soon incorporate design automation tools to its Web-based software suite. "Solidworks is the first CAD tool Clarizen has partnered with, and supporting its other CAD packages will be announced by the end of the year," said Avinoam Nowogrodski, CEO and cofounder, Clarizen

Clarizen's suite has Web-based management tools with engineering CAD tools needed to maintain project databases. Users are provided an option from a pull-down menu on their CAD tool to receive assignments and to report on their status.

Managers access the Clarizen data centers via a browser to see progress reports, assign new tasks and report project status to senior managers. E-mailed forms enable distributed teams to operate by time-shifting status reports relative to working hours synchronized by the data centers.

"We are examining the popular electronics design automation tools to choose which one to integrate with Clarizen first," said Nowogrodski.

Instead of buying Clarizen software, users pay a per-seat subscription fee to add their projects to Clarizen data centers.
