A sound constraint management design process helps to foster a correct-by-design approach, reduces time-to-market, and ultimately optimizes the design process—eliminating the undefined, error-prone methods of the past. Here are five questions to ask yourself when assessing a constraint management system.

Our most recent webinar, Constraint-driven design with OrCAD Capture, provided attendees with an overview of Constraint Manager for OrCAD. It is a new option available directly within the OrCAD Capture interface and can help define and embed constraints at the beginning of the design process—ensuring they will be communicated clearly. In addition to the overview on constraint-driven design, Janine Flagg, one of our senior field applications engineers, provided an in-depth demo on the product and answered any questions attendees may have had.

Setting up and implementing a constraint-driven design flow may seem like a daunting planning task, however spending the time upfront can save you hours (or even days) by preventing design mistakes. Proper constraint definition gives design teams a blueprint to work with making the PCB design process easier while eliminating the opportunity for errors, especially when passing designs to other members of your team. After all, Benjamin Franklin did say “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
