Background The destination matrix enables convenient viewing and editing of a component list that has part variants. Variants were discussed in a previous Tech Tip: “Variation Management in Component Lists”. This brief video...
DS-CR integrates directly into Zuken’s CR-8000 suite for 2D/3D multi-board PCB design, so engineers do not need to leave their CAD application to carry out everyday tasks. Engineers can increase their productivity by reducing the number of individual applications and user interfaces they use.
Variation Management provides the means for the user to define the part numbers and mounting status of parts to be mounted based on the product variation: delivery destination and model. Furthermore, Variant Management applications allow the user to easily switch views and export parts lists based on the destination.
Design engineers must have the ability to make intelligent component selections involving critical supply chain information without having to leave their design environment. In today’s world, end-of-life status, lead time, part preference and trusted/consistent parametric data are as important to your company’s design process as is the standard CAD content.
Please join us for our Fall/Winter Webinar Series that will run from September through March 2019. Over the following months, we’ll be covering a wide range of topics, from Silicon Expert to E3.series MCAD co-design. During each webinar, we’ll cover a common design challenge and present/demonstrate a solution. You’ll leave with takeaways that you can immediately apply to your daily activities.
DS-CR maintains electronics design data in a Vault with controlled access and revision control. That data needs to be distributed outside the vault to support various business activities such as fabrication, assembly, and supply chain management.
