Design Data Management and PLM

Native work-in-progress data management

Track components and designs

Electronic and electrical designs are based on comprehensive descriptions of multiple elements such as electrical properties and supply status (end-of-life or second source information). Since this information is typically held in separate environments (e.g. CAD libraries and ERP), there is a significant risk that engineering, sourcing and manufacturing specifications get out of sync.

We can help you with

Current, Validated Libraries and Design Data

Current, validated libraries, design data and BOM information for engineering, sourcing and production. Our powerful design data management functionality is directly integrated into the user interface of our authoring tools.

Change and Configuration Management

All project and design data, including options and variants, and related postprocessing data, exist in a controlled environment with comprehensive access control, revision management and analysis functionality.

Associative BOM Generation and Management

Accurate component lists and BOMs generated from associated schematic, PCB and wiring layout data, component information, documents and assembly drawings within a single managed environment.

Our satisfied customers

Zuken’s DS-2 (DS-CR) data management software offered everything we needed. As the Surface™ portfolio of products grew, data management for electrical design became an increasingly critical element of our process, and we were excited about the opportunity DS-2 provides to better integrate supply chain optimization directly into design decisions right at the engineer’s desktop. We are in the second phase of deployment managing our component library, and so far we are very pleased with the results,

Tech Tip: Design Compare in DS-CR

Have you ever tried to remember what changed between revisions of a design and then had to do a painstaking review of the two designs? With the comparison functions in DS-CR, even the smallest changes or unintentional deviations between different revisions of a PCB design can be quickly identified.
