Variosystems Purchases Valor's Automated DFM Verification Software

Jun 04, 2009

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, CA � May 2009 � Valor Computerized Systems, Inc., global provider of productivity improvement software across the printed circuit board design and manufacturing supply chain, announces Variosystems Inc.'s purchase of their Trilogy 5000 design-for-manufacturing (DFM) analysis software.

Variosystems, headquartered in Southlake, Texas, purchased the Trilogy 5000 DFM from Dee Claybrook, President of Southwest Systems, Valor's representative in Texas. Valor's DFM (Design for Manufacturing) software brings designers and the manufacturing supply chain together. It rationalizes the requirements of the design engineer and manufacturers who need to build products at a rapid pace and with the highest quality. Valor DFM is comprised of more than 700 design checks, covering all stages of the design process.

�Variosystems chose the Valor DFM tool because it is the standard for DFM. The Valor Parts Library (VPL), with its more than 35 million parts, is a key feature that will allow us to be productive immediately. It also provides an independent 3-D shape to validate the PCB design. Valor provides an excellent visual report that can be shared with customers to ensure clear communication as to the problem encountered,� said Alfred Langguth, Director of Operations & Development, Variosystems, Inc.

�Valor is pleased to welcome Variosystems as our newest customer. Valor's manufacturing software solutions are increasingly adding value to Tier 3 EMS companies with high-end solutions at market driven prices. Valor's software continues to delivers significant competitive advantages to EMS companies both large and small,� said Dan Weitzman, President of the Americas.

A unique benefit of the Trilogy solution is the Valor Parts Library (VPL), containing over 35 million commercial electronic component part numbers and their dimensioned package models containing accurate graphical contour, pin contact areas and positions, and dimensional tolerances. The VPL also supports the full virtual �prototyping� of products. This provides for fast off-line simulations to validate physical design characteristics against assembly and test constraints even before a first article or pilot run. With the �as-built� dimensionally accurate package data, Valor users can validate critical manufacturing processes in advance, such as solder-joint formation, test-point accessibility, pick-and-place constraints, rework accessibility, and much more.

The Valor software also features a �sharelist� that allows precise feedback to the design engineer. The sharelist captures selected DFM analysis results and packages them in an open document format for effective engineering collaboration. Combining graphical, text, and numerical data records, the sharelist also includes user comments and suggestions. Output formats include HTML, XML and formatted ASCII.

Variosystems is among the largest privately owned contract electronic manufacturing companies worldwide. It offers complete turnkey solutions from engineering to systems integration and order fulfillment. With more than 500 employees and state-of-the-art facilities around the world, Variosystems offers customized supply chain solutions, regardless of the size of customer projects.
