EMA Enterprise Integrate Links PLM and ERP Systems With OrCAD

Reading time ( words)

EMA Design Automation, a full-service provider and innovator of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) solutions, has just announced EMA Enterprise Integrate to enable OrCAD customers to bring products to market faster with a direct integration between OrCAD data and corporate PLM and ERP/MRP systems. 

“A fully integrated design environment that includes bidirectional integration between the ECAD toolset and widely used corporate PLM systems is critical to rapidly produce innovative and quality-driven products,” said Manny Marcano, president of EMA Design Automation. “Having PLM enterprise connectivity available inside OrCAD encourages end users to leverage supply chain preferred part selection as well as final BOM and file management for released data, and all saving time by reducing a duplication of effort. 

The bidirectional integration of EMA Enterprise Integrate enables OrCAD to automatically upload information from corporate systems seamlessly while working within the OrCAD solution. OrCAD users do not have to leave their native OrCAD interface to access various PLM functions. Engineering teams now have a direct link between their PCB design tools and their corporate system, maintaining data integrity between the engineering work-in-process data and corporate product lifecycle data.  The integration enables two-way communication between the two databases to ensure data integrity by eliminating manual processes reducing wasted time and error.  With embedded menus and PLM capabilities within the native OrCAD tool, engineering is empowered to make intelligent design decisions upfront with access to critical data such as lifecycle, stock, and pricing directly inside OrCAD. 

EMA Enterprise Integrate, along with Enterprise Link and Advanced Arena Integration, is part of the EMA Enterprise Connect family of products.  Like most EMA solutions, Enterprise Integrate is scalable.  Teams can start by purchasing the component library and meta data synchronization, and later scale into bidirectional vaulting of the OrCAD Capture schematic and eventually the PCB Editor board file.  The other option is to integrate the entire design environment from the beginning.  EMA currently supports the following systems: ARAS Innovator, Arena, Infor, Oracle Agile, SAP, SolidWorks Enterprise PDM, and Windchill PTC.   EMA’s Enterprise Connect solutions scale with the needs of the user, based on their particular requirements and budget.

“We strive to continuously observe the market and listen to our customers’ needs in order to deliver comprehensive solutions to help insure their success by reducing their time to market while increasing their profitability,” added Marcano.

What Does Intelligent Routing Look Like?

11/27/2019 | Brent Klingforth, Mentor, a Siemens business
Many PCB design projects miss schedule commitments by 70% due to delayed routing and lack of automation. Moreover, due to late-stage design changes, schedules are not met, and the addition of those new items takes 10 times longer or more to incorporate than if changes were added from the beginning. Fortunately, over the past several years, powerful routing capabilities have been added that allow designers to address a number of specific, critical tasks.
