Analysis and verification
Keeping track of incoming daily change notifications and the related update process is often difficult to manage when information sources are scattered across independent systems.
DS-2 provides an in-depth impact analysis and checking environment, where the change is being started and what kind of secondary data is impacted. This analysis environment also provides information about impacted divisions, projects or project levels.
DS-2 provides analysis of where components are used and what second sources are defined. The engineer also has access to criteria available to rate second source components for their order of usage.
DS-2 provides in-depth analysis to maintain the best possible quality of library information before reusing libraries or its individual objects.
For a bill of material (BOM) or manufacturing BOM, traditional searches (where-used) typically operate on one level of hierarchical data values. Additionally, traditional searches make inquiries on a target in its unchanged state, but this is not effective when searching for a target that has multiple revisions.
DS-2 offers a flexible way to rank components based on customers matrix to ensure valid methods for engineers to bridge the gap between engineering technology decisions versus sourcing decisions.
During the component selection process, supplier details are very important. The component reliability of different suppliers is important for deciding whether to use a component in a particular project.
With the many manufacturers of equivalent electronic parts, it is often difficult to know which parts and suppliers are best for your business. To get the correct product at the right price, many companies spend enormous effort managing their parts list and alternatives.
Variant management is multi-dimensional. DS-2 is ideally suited to help you with variant and destination management, while ensuring high levels of quality and reliability.
During the generation of component lists and related activities, many changes have to be implemented in multiple documents including the component list itself, material master and/or other related design files.
The importance of reliability testing, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing, and failure mode effect and analysis (FMEA) make electronic parts and test/measurement tools fundamental to the building your electronic product.
Preferred Pasts Lists (PPL) allow you to search for specifications, price and availability before selecting parts to use.
Whether your needs are as simple as sharing a document with another employee or as complex as sharing data with thousands of people, the key to streamlining the process is to define a data management analysis and design reuse plan.
