The Release to Manufacturing (R2M) Process is Far from Perfect

Today’s engineering documentation requires specialized interpretation, leading to errors that cost real money. Additional clarification of that documentation is required along the way, distracting engineers from design work. Confusion is frequent in terms of CAD applications and formats. Ensuring downstream consumers even have the right version of the engineering deliverable is an issue that persists. The problems related to R2M are far from solved.
