Increasingly complex digital designs require a better collaboration and decision-making platform. A sustainable platform based solution must help managers track design progress and see problems early, as well as help engineers see the big picture and get their jobs done. Without both these capabilities, designs will have a higher risk and a difficult time meeting schedules. This platform must intrinsically understand design data. Otherwise, it will fail to separate the information from the noise.

ENOVIA® Pinpoint meets these requirements and amplifies the effort of the whole team by enabling collaboration, better decision-making, and improved resource planning.

Attendees Will Learn:

  • Best in class Issue Closure platform for RTL, STA, Power Concerns and Layout
  • How to improve the effectiveness of your IC design reviews
  • How a Project Manager can gain insight to how a design is converging to closure
  • How to effectively collaborate between design disciplines for releasing design to FAB
  • A Design Services organization can use this platform as a key element in serving their customers
  • You will learn a new way of managing closure in a visual representation of your design rather then sifting through countless emails and power point status updates

Who Should Attend:

  • Layout Design Engineers
  • Executive Managers carrying the P&L for IC Design Projects
  • Program Managers
  • IC Design Services Organizations
  • IC Design Power Analysis Engineers
