Many claim to bridge the gap between design and manufacturing, but Mentor Graphics’ new product may have them all beaten. They recently announced their Lean NPI solution. This new software will allow for a seamless collaboration between the design and marketing PCB fields, shortening turntime, and lessening production errors. Specialists no longer need expertise in both the design and manufacturing worlds, something that has long a problem of contention in the PCB industry.
The official Mentor Graphics press release reads:
“As the market share leader in PCB computer-aided manufacturing, Mentor Graphics closes the gap between the designer and manufacturer. Now, the manufacturer can create and adjust the rules to meet manufacturing requirements that the designer can follow for a truly bi-directional, consistent, one-rule flow.”
