While all industries struggle with time-to-market pressures, this pressure is even more intense in the electronics industry. The speed at which technologies evolve and competitors either introduce new products that outdate others, or fast followers undercut profit margins, means the window for capturing market share for optimal revenue opportunities continues to decrease. Engineers need to be able to efficiently collaborate across the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) development team as well as other engineering disciplines. This paper offers guidance to help companies better manage their PCB design data so that they can improve engineering efficiency while maintaining data integrity to meet cost and quality targets.
