About a week ago Mentor released Valor NPI version 9.3.  The version  is also included in the release of Expedition Enterprise version 7.9.4.


This release of Valor NPI includes continued improvements to the  existing NPI platform and completely new capabilities to satisfy a  number of new product introduction requirements, among them:


  • Introduces a new Assembly Panel Design module to lower manufacturing  costs and reduce errors by eliminating ambiguous assembly panel  documentation.
  • Implements a reliable and repeatable automated method for managing manufacturing output.
  • Provides an improved method for managing the addition of attributes to a product model.
  • During hazards review, enables Expedition users view more layer content.
  • New checklist management capabilities can be found directly within the MRA.
  • Enables the automated collection of product model related “metacontent”.
  • Delivers improvement to the ODB++ Viewer included with Valor NPI.
  • Implementation of mouse strokes similar to those as found in Expedition.
