Design for Manufacturing and NPI
The Mentor Graphics PCB Design for Manufacturing solution enables PCB designers to achieve first-time-right designs against the industry’s most complete manufacturing process rule-sets using proven Valor technology. Fablink XE allows designs to be transitioned to PCB fabrication with complete data both at board and panel levels. ECAD data collaboration is facilitated by visECAD, a visualization and mark-up solution for viewing and annotating ECAD data at any point of the PCB development and manufacturing process. Mentor Graphics provide additional functionality with the following products: Valor NPI,visECAD, BOM Explorer , FabLink XE

Valor Process Preparation
Valor Process Preparation by Mentor Graphics provides manufacturers with everything they need to accurately and efficiently run the manufacturing process, while saving costs. Valor Process Preparation promotes an error-free manufacturing process, and it gives you the flexibility to move between machine vendors and different manufacturing sites and to optimize your SMT program, which is essential in today’s manufacturing market.
The Xpedition® Data Management suite manages the data created, reused,imported, or released from the Xpedition-based design flow, providing acentralized data and information hub for PCB designs. Major benefits: Centralized data and information hub allows easy access to project data, reducing cycle times. Version management and history tracking helps prevent defects. Infrastructure simplifies user’s experience with common administration, data access control, and security. Automatically extracts design data at check-in, allowing instant status tracking, and analysis without opening authoring tools, making project management more efficient
