Thorough PCB design data management is essential to minimizing the amount of risk associated with introducing a new product into the market and ensuring that this process is successful. Based on the experiences of over 175 executives responsible for PCB design, Best-in-Class practices provide insight on how other companies may incorporate these systems into their own processes as well.

Key findings include:

  1. There are many consequences that result from poor design data management, but by far the top pressure is the impact on time to market goals.

  2. Best-in-Class companies are 43% more likely than their peers to put each data element on the PCB under version control.

  3. Where the Best-in-Class differentiate themselves is in their combination of software (PLM, PDM, PCB tailored tools) to manage their design data.

  4. The Best-in-Class automate multiple functions (component management, front/back annotations, and DFM) to support the management of PCB design data.
