The IDS team often found itself needing to create and/ or manage part libraries for their customers. Creating and managing these client libraries was a very manual process that could take up a significant amount of time during a project.
The average time to create a part without using OrCAD Library builder can exceed an hour per part. IDS engineers would need to manually build symbols and footprints from component datasheet specs and then manually verify the footprint and symbols match. With so many manual steps not only was a lot of time being used but the opportunity for error was greatly increased. Furthermore the effort spent on these tasks was not usually accounted for in the overall project timeline.
