nice to hear from you!
About your questions:
- Management of net constraints in the Expedition Flow have historically been handled by Net Classes/ Net Properties or via CES. We do not have any plans in our roadmaps to modify this behaviour and the assignment or otherwise of test points would fit with the general constraints model. It would probably be a good point to raise on the Expedition Insider blog to get more general feedback on this kind of requirement.
- Currently we do not have any checking mechanisms for fractured symbols for the kinds of properties you mention, please raise an Enhancement Request or post this as an idea on the Bright Ideas site:
I hope to see you soon.
From 2007 to now, I have issued enhancements about CES in the supportnet. idea site and face-to-face meetings with Mentor mangers. I wish Mentor can support to define testpoint type and quantity for individual net in the CES, But I never received any feedback from Mentor.
in general CSD is managing ER and DR requests via ClearQuest, I apologize if you did not get an answer but that is usually the proper path. In any case I will verify with CSD.
As far as your request, this is not currently in our roadmap, however this could be done using ExpPCB and automation which has interfaces to load the number of testpoints by net into our system. In a similar way you can use CES automation to read what done by ExpPCB.
Script or automation isn't an efficenet way. As Frequence get more increasing, User need to get control thier testpoint assignment in layout phase. I hope this enhancement can be added in the roadmap in a not-far release.
