This is a general question that applies to Expedition and PADS. How does your organization handle layout and schematic revisions? If you change a resistor value/part number in the schematic which does not effect the package size, do you revise the revision on the schematic. Why or why not? How does your company handle the documentation for this situation. We have always had the schematic revision and layout revision matching. My boss wants to rev the schematic but not the board revision. We don't want to order a new board revision if it is just a value change. We use netlist flow but with integrated flow this is even more of an issues. We use netlist flow but with integrated flow this is even more of an issues.The schematic is the vehicle to drive the layout first but later now what?
We avoid this problem by releasing a BOM as its own document. So there will be a schematic, layout, and BOM release.
