Engineering Data Management Webinars

Combine multi-site electronics and electrical engineering data with related manufacturing data into a unified engineering environment, accessing a single source data pool. DS-2 has been created for the specific demands of electronic and electrical product design and manufacturing. It supports site-specific components, BOM handling and design data in one global environment. With DS-2, you can integrate into corporate PLM environments, uniting the design processes with the entire engineering product lifecycle.

The Essentials for Successful Multi-Site Design

Multi-site or enterprise-level design has become a fact of life in today’s electronics industry. More companies are opening design centers across the globe and collaborating with 3rd party design and manufacturing houses than ever before, introducing challenges and sometimes unintended consequences to the design engineering process.

This webinar explores the tools and processes necessary to implement a successful multi-site or enterprise electronic design engineering flow. Factors to consider include IP management, library synchronization, design data sharing, and configuration control during work-in-process. Attendees will learn some of the common pitfalls of a multi-site operation and how to overcome them.

Intellectual property is a valuable asset – protect it from unauthorized usage

Protect Your PCB Design Intellectual Property from Contract Manufactures

Intellectual property is a valuable asset that needs to be protected. If it falls into unauthorized hands, substantial investments can be jeopardized and competitive advantage is at risk. The extent and detail of the design data shared to sub-contracts is sufficient to be utilized for items beyond the intended use. This data should be protected and carefully shared to external partners.

Some companies address this issue by manually filtering, partitioning and deleting information to protect their IP, which can take enormous amounts of time. A new generation of electronic computer aided design (ECAD) software helps guard IP by enabling users to control what type of information is shared with various members of the extended enterprise. By automatically enforcing best practices in IP control, companies can be confident that each supplier only has the information they absolutely need to do their job. This approach makes it much more difficult to reverse engineer a product while not complicating the legitimate manufacturing process. Once implemented, IP management best practices can significantly slow down, if not stop the counterfeit process.

This webinar will demonstrate how next generation ECAD software is being used to address the IP theft challenge with permission controls that enable users to define with a high level of granularity the design information that will be included and excluded from the published data set. Permission controls and reusable templates make this process quick and straightforward, allowing for secure and controlled data exchanges during the design process.
