Estimates manual, automatic, printed circuit board production
This updated software suite includes DFA Version 9.3 and DFM Concurrent Costing® Version 2.2, new versions of previous bundled DFMA modules. The suite is designed to simplify product design, then estimate assembly, labor and part manufacturing costs. The new version offers new tools for comparing costs of automatic versus manual product assembly. The new software also has new tools for estimating costs to manufacture printed circuit boards. These tools include costs for internal and external circuit generation, lamination, AOI testing, hole drilling, solder masking, legend printing, and final circuit testing. It is compatible with Windows 98, 2000 and XP.
