Altium Designer Integration With PLM Maximizes PCB Design

pcb altium

A strategic challenge is the intelligent handling of PCB design data. The Teamcenter® connection for Altium Designer boosts productivity and reduces waiting time by gathering, organising, locating, and reusing the appropriate design data from anywhere. You can view, manage, and archive PCB data in a single safe location with its straightforward access to a full range of product lifecycle management (PLM) capability, which helps you optimise your design through production processes.

The Teamcenter integration for Altium Designer enables the creation of full product bill-of-materials, collaboration inside and beyond engineering domains, visualisation file generation, sharing of fabrication and assembly data with suppliers, and the opening and saving of native design files. You can easily identify, access, and manage the development, modification, and release of your most crucial electronics data when your PCB design processes are placed under Teamcenter supervision and integrated into organised workflows and efficient change management procedures.

Find, re-use, and collaborate on PCB design data with the Teamcenter PLM integration for Altium. Read more below.

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

Teamcenter provides an ECAD/MCAD co-design environment that facilitates cross-domain collaboration in order to maintain design data synchronised across domains. 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, approve or reject modifications, and add change notes or comments to the material being shared as part of the co-design process.

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.
