Transformative PCB Systems Development within the Product Lifecycle
Track: Partner Sessions
For too long, printed circuit board (PCB) development has been limited to incremental improvements around design cycle-times, cost-control initiatives, and quality improvement drivers. Transformative product development enables the creation of real business opportunities throughout the product development lifecycle, from concept creation to after-market servicing. This session will review Mentor’s initiatives to deliver transformative PCB systems development through greater integration of the mechanical and electrical domains: ECAD-MCAD co-design; 3D physical layout and simulation; reliability analysis; integrated requirements for capture and tracking; and the incorporation of manufacturability feedback into design. This session includes the methodologies of integrating native PCB systems data into Siemens Teamcenter, and the resulting opportunities this presents for driving organizational smart innovation initiatives.
