Valor Computerized Systems has successfully implemented its DFM solution at Siemens Bocholt, improving costs management and time to market.
The Valor DFM software, based on Enterprise 3000, is a virtual manufacturing system that enables OEMs to simulate the entire production process, from design through manufacture to assembly, concurrently with the design process, resulting in faster times to market and in most cases, improved product quality.
According to Mr Elshorst, project manager at Siemens Bocholt, there were many reasons for selecting the Valor DFM solution. Valor provided us with extensive DFM analysis and checking capabilities that were not possible within the constraints of the PCB CAD systems.
He added. We also wanted to improve data management and bi-directional communication with our bare board manufacturer. By reducing set-up time and with better handling of manufacturing change orders we have achieved shorter delivery times, and reduced our manufacturing costs.
