You've heard the stories. Most CAM departments report than anywhere from 80−100% of designs from new customers are inaccurate or incomplete, often necessitating a Friday afternoon call to the designer. What can be done to optimize the data package and make the handoff to the fabricator as smooth as possible?

The October 2018 issue of Design007 Magazine looks at the design data challenges of today, and offers a variety of solutions that may help stop those calls from your CAM guy.

In this interview, Pat McGoff, market development manager for Mentor, a Siemens Business, speaks frankly about fab notes and what EDA tool companies like Mentor can do to automate this process.

This Month in Design007 Magazine: Dear Designers—Please Include a Sanity Check

08/11/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
We recently asked Rick Almeida, DownStream co-founder, and Technical Sales Manager Ray Fugitt to discuss why so many fabricators are still receiving (and correcting) inaccurate and incomplete data from their customers.
