The Future of ECAD MCAD Collaboration
On-demand Web Seminar
As electronics become a more essential component of all products, it is crucial that electrical and mechanical designers communicate regularly to ensure that their design changes are coordinated with each other to eliminate design conflicts. This is often done through verbal or e-mail communications, complicated when the two organizations are not in the same location, time zone, or even country. This inefficiency results in extended schedules, increased product costs and sub-optimal product performance.
This session will explore business drivers and their impact on electro-mechanical design, as seen by the product lifecycle development experts at CIMdata. It will also introduce the industry's most advanced solution for ECAD/MCAD collaboration, jointly developed by PTC and Mentor Graphics.
What You Will Learn
- How to link the disconnected ECAD-MCAD domains, enabling real-time collaboration
- How to easily track incremental updates instead of reviewing large databases with unknown changes
- How to eliminate design re-spins and missed schedules
- How to reduce product development costs while optimizing performance
Who Should View
- PCB layout designers
- Mechanical engineers developing electronics products
- Engineering management responsible for electronics product development
