Mentor Graphics Integration for Xpedition, Xpedition EDM and PADS Delivers Optimized Co-design


The integrity and security of PCB design data and procedures are guaranteed by Teamcenter integrations for Mentor Graphics Xpedition, Xpedition EDM, and PADS. Greater productivity and team efficiency may be attained, which simplifies design timelines. Greater reuse of intellectual property from tested designs is encouraged by Xpedition EDM in order to raise product performance and quality. For quicker and better decision-making, all stakeholders have total insight into the design status, data, and KPIs.

You may manage and archive PCB data efficiently to improve the whole design through manufacturing process thanks to the Teamcenter connections, which offer simple access to a wide range of product lifecycle management (PLM) functions from the Mentor Graphics design environment. Designers can quickly load and save native design files, interact inside and between engineering domains, build visualisation and markup files, exchange fabrication and assembly information with suppliers, and produce full product bills of materials. You can easily recognise, access, and manage the production, modification, and release of your most important electronics data with Teamcenter PCB design because processes are integrated into organised workflows and efficient change management procedures.

Access up-to-date product information quickly and easily

You may work in a collaborative design environment thanks to Teamcenter integration, which offers easy access to product and process data. To further improve your design-through-manufacturing processes, Teamcenter software’s Active Workspace, secure access controls, and single source of data and process information provide you quick access to a comprehensive range of product lifecycle management (PLM) features.

Automated Workflow Processes, Including Design Release and Change

Structured workflows and change procedures must be implemented throughout the whole organisation if product delivery and quality goals are to be consistently met. You may establish workflows to start, carry out, evaluate, and approve product modifications or new part requests using Siemens PLM Software’s best practises and AdvantEdge methodology. As part of these organised procedures, you can automatically route the required alerts. You may fulfil delivery objectives and guarantee complete product quality by using organised workflows, problem tracking, and coordinated change management procedures.

ECAD-MCAD Co-design Collaboration as Products Evolve

Cross-domain cooperation is made possible by Teamcenter’s support for an ECAD/MCAD co-design environment with Mentor Graphics connectors. Your designers may communicate and exchange design information as a design develops using the Incremental Data eXchange format (IDX or EDMD) maintained in Teamcenter. You may exchange incremental data, accept or reject modifications, and add change notes or comments to the material being shared as part of the co-design process. Design cycles are shortened and potential mistakes caused by missed or ignored changes are avoided thanks to the notice of pending modifications and the status of change processing.

Manufacturing Validation and Release to Manufacturing

Teamcenter includes visualisation and Bill-of-Materials (BOM) management tools that enable you to see, cross-probe, and analyse PCB data for fabrication, assembly, and test-related concerns in order to make sure designs are prepared for a seamless transition into production. The mark-up features produce a useful history of the design’s development. When verifying and conveying modifications to production, the BOM comparison and grading capabilities help to assure the accuracy and completeness of the data given.

Preconfigured Pdm to Get Into Production Quickly, and Cost-Effectively, Then Grow To Plm

To meet a variety of corporate demands, Teamcenter offers multiple deployment choices. By utilising a wide range of apps, you may increase the value of your Teamcenter solution thanks to its demonstrated scalability. For small and medium-sized businesses looking for a growth route to PLM, Teamcenter Rapid Start offers a preconfigured PDM deployment option that handles design data as well as regular activities and procedures. This makes it a great entry point into the Teamcenter product family.
