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.
Industry 4.0, a.k.a. the Fourth Industrial Revolution (IR), is a hot topic because most of us are either taking our first steps in this world, or we’re preparing to.
Clearly, earlier industrial revolutions were all about making better use of resources (e.g. burning coal to make steam), people (e.g. workers in factories) and, latterly, electricity and computer-controlled automation. For each revolution, the companies that did well were early adopters of the technology and practices of the day, and they recognised waste when they saw it.
There is one thing that all design engineers will agree on: creating and gathering all the required data for PLM is error-prone and can be a royal pain. We all understand the value of releasing our design data to the corporate PLM system but our design process dictates multiple release points, and each one has a different purpose and data requirements.
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.
