There is a gorilla in the room. This gorilla, also known as library management, is big and at times pretty nasty. Luckily, Altium’s marketing push for Concord Pro as a component management system has shed light onto library management which has motivated design groups to have a much needed and long delayed conversation about organizing their libraries. As a result, the team at Nine Dot Connects have been fielding an increased number of questions regarding library management. Everyone at Nine Dot Connects is elated that this critical topic is finally being seriously addressed by a number of companies.
However, there is a misconception that a component management tool will create an organized library by importing existent data. Like any software process, garbage-in equals garbage-out. Regardless of the management system, the components must be prepared and formatted for the new system. More importantly, design team members must agree about how the components will be maintained moving forward. In short, a good component management system relies on a definitive setup procedure and continued consistent maintenance that follows that procedure.
