Nujira Creates Closed-Loop and Error-Free Engineering Processes Using Mentor Graphics PCB Tools

Omnify Software, a leading provider of web-based Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software for discrete manufacturers, today announces its latest Empower PLM implementation customer case study featuring Nujira, Ltd., the world leader in Envelope Tracking (ET) technology and solutions for powering energy efficient 4G cellular terminals, base stations and digital broadcast transmitters.

Nujira implemented the Empower PLM solution from Omnify Software to gain better control over their engineering data and processes for PCB designs. The company was using a component management database that was initially sufficient for their needs, but as Nujira grew, it became inadequate to control information such as Engineering Change Orders (ECOs) and product documentation. The company also had to address concerns associated with various sources and versions of data that were a consequence of their manual processes.

“We had silos of information that were the result of people creating and saving documents locally and we continuously ran the risk of someone using outdated information,” stated Richard Sharples, CAD Engineering Manager for Nujira, Ltd. “An error from sending the wrong data to a Contract Manufacturer could potentially cost tens of thousands of pounds.”

By implementing the Omnify Empower PLM solution, Nujira created a central location to access and manage product information such as ECOs, BOMs (Bills of Materials) and documents. The company also took advantage of Empower PLM’s tight integration with Mentor Graphics Expedition® PCB in order to develop a closed-loop, error-free process that eliminates the need for any manual editing. Design engineers are able to utilize the power of the Omnify database by selecting components directly from Empower PLM and placing them onto schematics. A BOM is then generated from the final schematic and loaded directly into Empower PLM.

“Our previous process to import a Parts List from a schematic took well over an hour to complete (for every Parts List) and now it takes only a few minutes,” said Mr. Sharples. “Checking an ECO has also been reduced from a full day to only a matter of seconds due to the redlining capability of Empower PLM.”

“Because our customers’ products are typically complex with a mixture of electrical and mechanical components, it is important for them to have efficient product development processes in place,” stated David Solimini, Vice President of Sales for Omnify Software. “As paper-based methods become too cumbersome to effectively manage data such as changes, revisions and documents, customers like Nujira adopt Empower PLM as an ideal solution to help obtain control over their information through automated processes and centralized information.”
