Evolving Design Reuse Considerations

For many electronics companies, their new products are actually variations of existing products. Products often have design circuits that can be leveraged from product to product. The ability to reuse board-to-board printed circuit board (PCB) circuits enables design teams to build new products quickly, accelerating time to market. These reusable “golden circuits” can vary from …

Smart inventory management: A $14M opportunity for manufacturers

Digital transformation (DX) initiatives are a fundamental way for many organizations to improve both product assembly and manufacturing throughput. It’s important for manufacturers to understand that investments in DX initiatives can minimize inventory costs, releasing short-term capital and boosting stock turnover rates.

The Small Business Owner, 3DEXPERIENCE Works, and Broad Lifecycle Support

Let’s take a quick look at how the small business owner can incorporate and use 3DEXPERIENCE Works for broad lifecycle support in the cloud computing era. A traditional small business structure may include separate departments that may need access to the same data while others do not. Pre-cloud computing meant that internally a company would …

Boosting Mechanical Design Team Productivity with CAD Solutions 

Executives are focused on boosting the productivity of mechanical design engineers, and rightfully so.  Engineers persevere through a challenging workload in the face of shrinking timelines and increasingly complex products. As a result, morale and work quality can suffer.

Overcoming Design Complexity with Increased Productivity from your CAD Solutions

Manufacturers are under more pressure than ever to design innovative products. These products incorporate more electronic and software components. In a modern world, this means they are subject to increasingly stringent, requirements. The result? Added complexity for the design process; more complexity means more difficulty. The aim of Lifecycle Insights’ CAD Usability Study was to …

The Evolution of the PCB Librarian Role

Is the traditional PCB librarian’s role becoming obsolete? Printed circuit board (PCB) engineers and specialists like signal integrity (SI) and electromagnetic interference (EMI) engineers have traditionally had very different responsibilities, but the lines between these roles are now becoming blurred. Over the past few years, engineers performing the layout tasks within the PCB design flow …

Granular Changes and Onshape: Powering Critical Use Cases

Onshape, a computer-aided design (CAD) is built on a SAAS (software as a service) model. It allows granular changes to be tracked and merged into projects. This is significant for teams working remotely on the same project. The power of Onshape is its compute-intensive processing enhanced by its use of cloud computing and internet servers. …
