Fixing the Change Management Nightmare



Configuration and change management of design data is a big challenge in aerospace electrical design. Creating, tracking and checking the many variants of individual features is a challenge both from the standpoint of electrical integrity -“does this configuration operate correctly?”; and from the standpoint of data management – “how to manage multiple effectivities without massive data duplication?”

Join Mentor Graphics for this session to learn how leading companies are addressing the challenges of configuration and change management using the Capital electrical design system to design and manage their data and simplify the process of electrical configuration control and validation.

What You Will Learn

  • How leading companies are using effectivity management at the design level to assist the engineer during the product design process
  • How various revisions of designs can be quickly assembled into a new product configuration
  • How design change is managed and the various ways to determine the “was/is” differences in the design data
