Software Streamlines Flow Of D2B Information

Nov. 1, 2001

By streamlining the flow of information from design through manufacturing, GR Force/Design-to-Build (D2B) software helps OEMs decrease time-to-market for new products. The modular, interconnected D2B software is designed to facilitate the free flow of product information throughout the design-to-manufacturing progression by eliminating unnecessary data transfers and manipulations during this complex process.Said to be the industryÕs first GenCAM-certified framework, GR Force/D2B includes modules for acquiring data from more than 30 CAD design formats, for importing board schematic information inlabeled HPGL format, for modifying design data and managing parts libraries, and for viewing GenCAM v1.5 design data files in a graphical manner.
