Use Better DFM Checks to Improve Flex PCB Manufacturing Productivity

Use Better DFM Checks to Improve Flex PCB Manufacturing Productivity

Flex designs pose unique challenges for most PCB tools because traditional object checks don’t account for Flex checks nuances. They present a new set of objects that are best accounted for during the design phase. 

This forces designers to incorporate changes after the design data is off to manufacturing for build. The manufacturer must then perform the Flex-based checks on the design and relay the issues back to the designer. This leads to a frustrating loop that delays product releases and wastes money.

It is also a powerful differentiator the investment goods industry. Bespoke products that are customized to meet a customer’s business needs are an important driver for companies that operate at the high end of their respective markets, such as automation, industrial machinery and transportation.

BOM Management Through Component EOL Cycle with Zuken's DS-2

Tech Tip: Managing BOMs Through the Component EOL Cycle with Zuken’s DS-CR

Electronic components are constantly changing, causing parts to go EOL (End-of-Life) for various reasons: companies go out of business, component product lines change hands, old technology is updated with new. Electronic product manufacturers must be agile to keep their product BOMs (bill of materials) up to date and keep their supply chain humming. Fortunately for them, Zuken’s DS-CR customers leverage component and design data relationships to tackle the problem.


What Does Success Look Like for Your Project?

More often than not, our customers are less interested in the core functionality of the software than the goals and objectives they need to achieve when using it. These are usually product development projects with deadlines, cost and performance targets, alongside project management and coordination efforts. So, success for our customers is only achieved if the tools are deployed in a way that supports the company’s product development process and its related requirements.
