Legacy Data Management and Migration with CR-8000


In today’s global value chains, data exchange and re-reuse are vital to support collaboration and productivity. But most data formats are proprietary. Whether you need to streamline your design process across different locations, upgrade and standardize your system environment, or re-use existing legacy data – for any organization with an extensive database of ECAD legacy data, the need for data migration will eventually arise.

Converting ECAD data from different platforms such as PADS by Mentor Graphics or Altium Designer to make it compatible with the CR-8000 design environment is now faster and easier than ever.

The legacy data migration process

Data migration can be done in several different ways, via a graphic user interface or on command-level, all in one go or in individual steps, depending on the user. Essentially, the process is best described as a secure, adaptive, and integrated process without the risk of data loss. CR-8000 can not only migrate your data but also adjust it so that outdated designs are updated automatically. With our engineering support you have a team of experts by your side, every step of the way.

Ready for an upgrade?

CR-8000 checks your PCB designs for manufacturing requirements like no other software on the market. One process can cover more than 900 individual checks, which are all fully integrated into the Zuken layout tools.

Zuken’s data management solution DS-CR completes the CR-8000 engineering environment and supports the “where used functionality” for any technical object that needs to be updated. And the best thing: it doesn’t stop on part-level, it is able to locate any object with related active and archived design data. This accelerates the whole design process and makes it more reliable.

Komplexität mit einem modularen Produktansatz beherrschen

Modular aufgebaute Produktportfolios sollen die Kalkulation und Realisierung von Investitionsgütern besser planbar machen – dennoch scheitern sie häufig an der klassischen Trennung der Disziplinen. Um das Versprechen einer modularen Produktarchitektur einlösen zu können, müssen Unternehmen jedoch einige wichtige Voraussetzungen in Organisation, Abläufen und Infrastruktur schaffen.
