Changes in the design of an integrated electromechanical product should not happen without sophisticated collaboration and cooperation of all design members involved across the domains and design disciplines. Essential for an effective collaboration is a shared vision of how to achieve the required product properties and product performance. The complexity of new innovative products enforced by miniaturization and limited space without mechanical housings need agreed and jointly decisions about changes The central point in a successful “what-if” analysis is the history of the collaboration process at any point and design change. MECODES ensures that the engineers have access to the design history with the capabilities of the version and revision control and management at any moment of time. MECODES provides all historical versions and revisions of the PCB and mechanical design in context to restart collaboration and redesign from any previous design point of view. Stored history information including all updates in the electromechanical model variations enables the restart of the design at any point in the history.
This transaction history capability is critical for a product designer to check and correct any mistake during the collaboration steps or develop the product from a certain design point with new functionalities and behaviors without starting from the beginning.
