Top of the Line Tools for
DFM, DFA and DFT Analysis
SEM constantly evaluates tools to enhance its ability for early detection of manufacturing issues, a key factor for success in new product introduction (NPI) launch. SEM currently uses Valor by Mentor Graphics, a top of the line tool, for design for manufacturing (DFM), design for assembly (DFA) and design for test (DFT) analysis. Valor gives us the ability to evaluate and detect discrepancies in manufacturing and testing processes ahead of the actual run; this is an essential capability in a quick turn NPI environment.
The use of Valor allows us to control all manufacturing activities from a single source of data generation. A single command and control system gives us the ability to reliably control changes in the dynamic NPI environment.
