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

Through the standardization of design data and libraries we have created the foundation for the systematic reuse of existing designs.

Releasing Your Design to PLM is more Complicated than You Thought

There is one thing that all design engineers will agree on. Creating and gathering all the required data for a release to the PLM system is error-prone and can be a “messy”. We all understand the value of releasing our design data to the corporate PLM system, but a best practice design process dictates multiple release profiles with different purposes and different data requirements.

Improve Design Data Security Across Your Enterprise

As companies face tougher and tougher competition, the secrets behind their product’s competitive edge resides in the design IP. But most companies have little or no design data security. And as product design operations become global, IP protection becomes more challenging. Companies with ITAR design content face national security concerns. Enabling design or IP access on an individual or team basis is simply not available in many design environments today.
