The Lean NPI Design-to-Manufacturing Flow
On-demand Web Seminar
During this webinar you will learn the most efficient way to hand-off a PCB from any design tools-flow to the manufacturing process. We will summarize the essentials of DFM and its significance for PCB product-design operations including an introduction to best practice Lean NPI, a flow-based solution for a business process that extends across design and outsourced manufacturing.
You will learn how left-shifting DFM onto the designer’s desktop enables the designer to minimize manufacturing-related revision spins without having to be a manufacturing expert.
What You Will Learn
- How to take more control over manufacturability as a concurrent process within any PCB layout environment
- The distinction between design rules and manufacturing process rules
- Efficient preparation of an intelligent and integrated product-model data-package for error-free hand-off to manufacturing process engineering.
