Create High Quality Documentation Saving Time and Costs with BluePrint-PCB

A best in class new product introduction process requires a predictable, repeatable and error free exchange of documentation between design and manufacturing. High quality PCB documentation leads to expedited assimilation of a design into manufacturing with fewer questions, fewer errors, and lower overall costs. Organizations that demand high quality PCB Documentation be an integral part of their process realize shortened turn-around times, improved product quality, and overall reduced costs.


The Problem

Current tools and methodologies for creating PCB Documentation are essentially workarounds that, rather than automate, become obstacles to producing detailed and accurate PCB documentation in a timely manner. The traditional approach to PCB documentation is to use drawing features of the native PCB CAD system. Those features were designed for producing graphics for PCB elements - not PCB documentation. Current tools lack the basic intelligence of a word processor or spreadsheet application necessary for the creation of notes and parts lists. The use of rudimentary graphic tools for PCB documentation tasks also leads to more time consuming and error prone ECO processing - simple unintelligent graphic objects must be individually revised and adjusted to document the changes.


The Benefits of Creating PCB Documentation with BluePrint-PCB

BluePrint-PCB is a new approach to PCB documentation - a tool built specifically as a PCB documentation authoring tool. Use it to quickly create the documentation required to drive the PCB fabrication and assembly processes. BluePrint-PCB leverages the PCB CAD data to automatically create and intelligently link PCB Views, drill charts, parts lists, detail views, fabrication and assembly notes. Change made in the PCB design are instantly propagated to drawing elements across all drawings and all sheets dramatically reducing time spent maintaining PCB documentation. BluePrint-PCB enables you to create high quality PCB documentation in less time than traditional methods and to implement a best in class NPI.
