Transaction history

In cases where physical prototypes take months to build, engineers are very careful about deciding upon design options. These challenges may slow down the innovation process as well as the implementation of new ideas.

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 agreement and joint decisions about changes. The central point in a successful “what-if” analysis is the history of the collaboration process at any point and design changes. 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 resume collaboration and redesign from any previous design point of view.

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.

With Transaction History, projects can be reverted to their previous states and returned back to the latest state when needed.
