Releasing Your Design to PLM is More Complicated Than You Thought


Watch On-Demand

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. Checkpoints and design reviews may require schematic and board viewables, a current BOM, specifications, simulation results and supporting documents.  Prototype, First Article and Full Production builds have different release package content requirements. And let’s not forget about the ECO process and its data needs.

This webinar will discuss the different release profiles from WIP to a manufacturing-centric PLM system followed by the demonstration of best practices that can make the job easier and more reliable.

DS-CR, Zuken’s Design Data Management System, offers a reliable and controlled release of your WIP engineering data to PDM/Manufacturing.
