In today’s competitive Electronics and High Tech market, ECAD and MCAD teams must work together seamlessly in order to get winning products to market faster. Traditional collaboration methods are no longer suitable. When design changes impact both ECAD and MCAD designs, more efficient tools are required to improve communication of design changes and proposals within each discipline’s established comfort zone. The PTC Creo ECADMCAD Collaboration Extension (ECX) gives you the industry’s most advanced capabilities to help you optimize your electromechanical detailed design process.
PTC Creo ECX gives you a fully integrated package that offers interaction with the ECAD view, fostering ECADMCAD design collaboration. By leveraging the capabilities in PTC® Creo® View ECAD™, PTC Creo View ECAD Compare and PTC Creo View ECAD Validate, you can collaborate more efficiently by electronically proposing, identifying, managing and retracing the history of changes across mechanical and electrical disciplines.
Streamlines electromechanical design collaboration processes, reducing time-to-market and decreasing cost
Gives mechanical engineers better insight into the potential impact of changes on electrical designs – before the changes are proposed
Incremental data exchange enables mechanical and electrical engineers to communicate more frequently and efficiently
Provides a consistent way to communicate changes across disciplines
Enables you to quickly and easily identify, resolve and manage unanticipated consequences of a design change
Improves design quality; seamless integration reduces errors and improves data integrity
Enhances traceability of the design IP, for knowledge capture and design reuse
PTC Creo ECX derives its cutting-edge capabilities from the EDMD (also referred to as IDX) standard driven and maintained by the ProSTEP iViP Association’s ECAD/MCAD Collaboration Project Group. The EDMD standard includes a data model and protocol developed with some of the leading ECAD software providers and global manufacturers confronting the challenges of cross-discipline collaboration. This innovative approach has been validated by leading companies in the industry and is designed to interact with other design tools used in your product development process.
