Overall Satisfaction with Arena

Arena is used exclusively by my department and our suppliers. The main reason we use Arena is to share our PCB fabrication files with suppliers but it has also been very helpful in revision control on PCB designs. We have used Arena for 10+ years and it has done a great job of recording the history and timeline of our various products. We have more recently started to also keep track of BOMs in Arena. We also use Arena to control part number creation and inventory.
  • Revision Control
  • BOM Management
  • Part Number Creation
  • Mass file upload fails often
  • Updating files on products is tedious
  • Would be nice to have automatic ECO creation on revision changes
  • New Product Development
  • Quality
  • Prior Experience with the Product
Continuity in a program is specifically important to my company because turnover can be high, so it is very helpful to have an accurate history of a product lifecycle.
Arena is great for keeping track of revisions on products.
