I think the main goal of ICDB flow is enhancing design process by working on the same database.
I don’t think fulfill this goal.
I am looking for a solution for these 2 scenarios .
2 EE ‘s working on the same design ( a design consist of 2 sheets)
EE-1 editing sheet 1 and opening sheet 2 view
EE-2 should edit sheet 2 and read sheet 1
Both engineers will lock each other.
Conclusion. No Read/write capabilities on sheet level.
2 engineers cannot share same design.
Scenario 2 :
1 EE and 1 PCB designer .
1 EE working on a project editing design .
1 PCB design opened the same design to check certain area .
PCB design cannot open project for read only .
PCB design may lock the schematic if he opened for viewing
Conclusion : No read/Write capabilities on Project level.
The flow was established under the assumption that designer will open one sheet for edit only and never open other sheets which is incorrect.
Am I correct?
Are there solutions for both scenarios other than archive /backup ?
