@Max: Good to learn that one integrated platform of tools will take care of the PCB design-to-manufacturing process flow. One question I had is would it also do the job of component lifecycle management? When ever a component is declared to be moved to EOL by its manufacturer, does Valor tool have a feature that would notify the engineering team about EOL status? Sometimes an NPI cycle of a complex board takes 12-16 months. By the time the design is completed and moved to manufacturing, it is found that there are some EOL notices for some components from the manufacturer (especially memory parts).
