11 Agenda The Need for NPI Solutions Valor NPI Integration in the Mentor Flow Valor NPI Process Flow Value Proposition Valor NPI Resolving manufacturability issues during design so they don t cost you time and money

12 Klik om de modelstijlen te bewerken Tweede niveau Derde niveau Vierde niveau Vijfde niveau The need for NPI solutions

13 The Need for NPI Solutions What pains are you feeling today? High levels of scrap during the manufacturing process Low yields during the manufacturing process Not meeting product delivery schedules Product reliability problems Too many revision spins per design Insufficient DFM feedback from manufacturing suppliers

14 The Need for NPI Solutions PCB Design Data Output NPI Process verifies the design output data is suitable for the manufacturing processes and constraints Manufacturing Data Release NPI Solution DFM Validation Data Output Automation Assembly Panel Design & Verification NPI Process prepares the design output data for streamlined hand-off to manufacture

15 The Need for NPI Solutions DFM Top Business Pressures Driving Improvements in PCB Design Need to launch products quickly Demand for lower cost products Demand for higher quality products Demand for more feature-rich products DFM addresses four of these pressures Reduced development budgets 0% 5% 10% 15% 20% 25% 30% 35% 40% 45% Aberdeen Group, Why Printed Circuit Boards Matter to the Executive, February, 2010

16 The Need for NPI Solutions DFM Using prototyping and production to uncover DFM issues is time consuming and expensive At each step, it costs 10 times more to fix a problem than the previous step The most expensive failures are the ones that you find in the field $ $ $ $ $ $ $ PCB Design Prototype Fabrication Prototype Assembly Small Lot Fabrication Small Lot Assembly Production Fabrication Production Assembly Product Release Time Measured in Months

17 The Need for NPI Solutions Causes for Fabrication Hold 20,0% 18,0% 16,0% 14,0% 12,0% 10,0% 8,0% 6,0% 4,0% 2,0% 0,0% Percent of Total Issues 26% of jobs put on hold DFM could have prevented 66.7% of the holds Courtesy of P. D. Circuits, Hampstead, NH Data collected over six months, 2008

18 The Need for In-House DFM DFM Interests Subject Design Organization External Manufacturer Product costs Minimize costs Maximize profit DFM trade-offs Wants control of decisions Wants control of decisions Form factor Miniaturization Maximum manufacturing yield Design revision spins Wants to minimize/eliminate Makes money off of each spin PCB design integrity Wants PCB built as designed Wants/needs to edit PCB design for manufacturing processes Communication Expects full disclosure of all edits Will communicate as required Component sourcing Wants control for quality reasons Wants control for costs/profit reasons Product reliability Of utmost concern Of little concern
