ECAD data is a key component of product design and supports a variety of downstream processes. This also includes virtual prototyping, work instructions and technical publications. An accurate and direct exchange of information with the PLM system during development and manufacture is therefore crucial for the quality and timing of the launch of a product.
With the ECAD integration platform integrate2 from XPLM, Mentor Xpedition Enterprise users and their extended supply chain can manage the design process and collaborate from the central CIM Database application.
integrate2 manages all ECAD-relevant system and process data in the PLM system with standardized functionalities:
