OrCAD® Engineering Data Management (EDM) is a comprehensive WIP (work in progress) data management environment for the OrCAD PCB design solution. Fully integrated within the OrCAD environment, OrCAD EDM lets your engineering design team take advantage of the time-to-market benefits gained from effective design data management. OrCAD EDM eliminates the challenges associated with managing files across multiple users, locations, and disciplines.
Managing PCB design data is a complex process. Designing a PCB generates a host of files and associated data that must be kept in sync and tracked. Often these files are being accessed and edited by multiple users and changes to the contents of these files need to be communicated across groups and disciplines sometimes spaced around the globe.
