    Standardize and Enhance Your Design Efficiency with Project Templates

    project templates help your team move fast example

    Are you unnecessarily repeating steps that are slowing your design workflow down? Starting to feel the pressure of a modern, fast-paced design environment that demands continuous product deliveries and rapid design cycles? Find out how Project Templates can help to speed up your project setup time by standardizing your initial setup goals.

    Today’s engineers are under constant pressure to finish projects on increasingly shorter product schedules. Oftentimes, they find themselves unnecessarily repeating the same steps that slow the design workflow down, and many feel the pressure of a modern, fast-paced design environment that demands continuous product deliveries and rapid design cycles. However, valuable time can be saved (and a lot of stress prevented) by starting a new project using project templates.

    Project Templates in Altium Designer®

    In Altium , every design starts with a project. We can leverage the use of project templates to help populate parameters, design files, libraries, output jobs, and other document types to help shorten the initial setup time for an Altium PCB project.

    project templates

    With just a little prep work invested in creating a project template, you can easily shorten the time needed to begin a new project in the future. Aside from the obvious time-saving benefits of project templates, they can also be extremely valuable in situations where you need to standardize the base foundation for all PCB project documents for a larger engineering team. As the easiest PCB design software on the market, we know we can help. 

    Download your free whitepaper today about Enhancing Your Design Efficiency with Project Templates and save time on your next project.
