EMA Design Automation, Inc. Provides Supply Chain Driven Part Selection with New PLM and ERP Integrations for the OrCAD Solution

EMA Design Automation 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. 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.

EMA Design Automation Adds Bi-Directional Interface Between OrCAD and Arena's PLM

EMA Design Automation announced that Cadence® OrCAD® PCB (printed circuit board) design tools and the Arena cloud-based PLM system are now more comprehensively integrated. This new integration enables two-way communication between the two databases to ensure data integrity by eliminating manual processes. As a result, end-users can upload a BOM (bill of materials) directly into the Arena PLM system. An automatic upload directly from the OrCAD environment ensures that the BOM is correctly formatted and contains all required content, all without ever having to leave their native CAD environment or deal with any formatting or data translation issues. Conversely, the people managing the PLM system can be assured of the BOM's correct content and upload with no effort on their part. This ability not only reduces the time required to perform the task, but also reduces human error. Other new capabilities stemming from this integration streamline component management. For instance, a commonly used function in PLM is 'where-used', which performs a search to determine where a component is used across all products. This new integration provides the engineering team with the ability to find other projects or designs that use a specific part. This is particularly useful when a part becomes obsolete or fails at an abnormal rate. Another potential source of problems stems from correctly and efficiently applying part numbers to temporary or new parts. OrCAD Component Information Portal (CIP) already provides an effective new part introduction process. This new integration works in conjunction with the Arena PLM system to allow authorized users to automatically assign the next available Arena part number to new parts, eliminating a previously manual and error prone process. The prior integration brought engineering data from Arena's cloud PLM system to the OrCAD Component Information System (CIS) database and also enabled temporary part sourcing and creation within the two systems.

EMA Design Automation and Arena Solutions Form Strategic Alliance Yielding a Tighter Integration

EMA Design Automation and Arena Solutions announced that they have formed a strategic alliance combining Arena PLM with EMA's data management solution for Cadence OrCAD to improve the overall user experience. The OrCAD and Arena integration provides a number of benefits for organizations using both systems. Components from the enterprise PLM system are available directly within the OrCAD Capture CIS design environment making search, selection, and placement very simple. Parts listed as obsolete in the PLM system can be easily identified and swapped out in an OrCAD design. All parts added to a design are assured to be approved and preferred components. With a complete design containing accurate component information, OrCAD users can create zero touch BOMs because all required component information comes directly from their enterprise PLM system. Finally these BOMs are easily imported into Arena PLM for sharing with the rest of the organization.
