How Data-Centric Tools Reduce Electrical Design Time & Cost



The increased complexity of today’s products is placing increasing pressure on all engineering processes, particularly the electrical design process. Electrical architects must strike a balance between many conflicting requirements from every stage in the product life cycle – initial planning, design, manufacture, service and maintainability. This is driving many companies to adopt electrical design tools that can manage the entire product data lifecycle rather than using discrete tools that are poorly integrated.

View this webinar to understand how these “datacentric” design tools provide a higher level of data integration that reduces design cycle time and effort, and helps reduce product cost.

What You Will Learn

  • How leading companies are using datacentric electrical design tools to integrate the design data from all stages in the process
  • How revisions of multiple designs can be quickly assembled into a new, validated product configuration/effectivity
  • How design change is managed and the various ways to rapidly compare the differences in design revisions
