ECAD-MCAD collaboration enables sustainable competitive advantage

Did you know that design re-spins due to poor ECAD-MCAD integration result in delayed time-to-market and unplanned costs?
Companies that implement ECAD/MCAD data exchange are more likely to meet their cost and time-to-market goals and deliver higher-quality products than companies that don't.

Impact of poor ECAD-MCAD collaboration

  1. No consistent, continuous communication to keep the ECAD and MCAD data synchronized

  2. No what-if evaluations to avoid costly and time-consuming design iterations

  3. No process for negotiating proposed changes between the ECAD-MCAD domains

  4. No methodology for validating design intent early and often

Advantages of ECAD-MCAD colloboration

  • Increase productivity

  • Improve design robustness

  • Increase collaboration and efficiency

  • Achieve first-pass success
