conver PDM powerdesigner to visio

I need to convert a powerdesigner data model to VISIO. Can anybody tell me how to do it.


RE: conver PDM powerdesigner to visio


You would have to do a manual convert. In PowerDesigner 10 you will be able to import Visio diagrams into PowerDesigner as a free model.

Thanks for the response. Jay, is there any way we can use mata data of the s-designer and conver it to VISIO data model. I hope there are some tools on the net. One tool I have seen is Model Bridge.

I am actually convering PDM from Powerdesigner 6.1 to VISIO. The best way I could find till now is VISIO reversing engineering. Do you think there is any other way of doing it better.


RE: conver PDM powerdesigner to visio

MetaIntegration can do it, from the newer versions at least. But you will pay for the privelidge $5K. Visio does not have strict models, that is they can be anything , weakly typed I guess. So the question is what sort of Visio models they would create.

To convert PowerDesigner models manually would take quite a lot of work. Especially as the 6 models were not XML. If you have a lot of metadata it might be worth paying for the conversion.

Easier to upgrade to PD 9.5 ;)
