Tech-Tip: Design Data Management with Zuken’s DS-CR Engineer’s Desktop
Often, it’s challenging to organize and track product design data used by many people throughout the design cycle. This tech tip will help you manage design data in a secure, access-controlled data vault with check-out, revision control, and approval workflows.
The DS-CR Engineer’s Desktop (EDT) provides a well-organized, enterprise-wide, project structure for all the electronic product data in a given project. Data resides in a secure, access-controlled file vault with check-out and lifecycle tracking features.
DS-CR organizes design data management in a convenient tree structure grouping related design objects such as the circuit, layout, and parts list. It provides features to easily visualize the current status and track the history of each object.
The video shows you how to use DS-CR EDT for product data management.
To summarize, DS-CR’s EDT provides a secure, access-controlled environment with a consistent project structure for design data. Design objects are under revision control with review and approval workflows to manage the transition through each stage of the design process. Furthermore, the status and change history is visible within a few mouse clicks.
