Engineering Integration Between PCB Design and Manufacturing
On-demand Web Seminar
The interface between design and manufacturing is a critical step in new product introduction (NPI). Inefficiencies in design/manufacturing collaboration such as extra preparation phases and design scrap/rework are common, resulting in increased development cost and time. Efficiency can only be achieved through effective communication of manufacturing constraints (mfg IP) into the design process, and design intent (design IP) into manufacturing. This session will address the complete design through manufacturing flow, covering best practices for design IP management, a digital manufacturing process, feedback of DFM constraints to the design team, and efficient engineering change collaboration between design and manufacturing.
What You Will Learn
- Best practices in an efficient design-through-manufacturing flow
- The role of ODB++ to effectively communicate design intent and convey protected IP, saving time and money, and reducing the quality risk
- Mentor Graphic's vision for a unified DFM environment enabling seamless bidirectional collaboration between design and manufacturing.
