DRAPER FEA (finite element analysis) model predictive design tool has been tested and validated to show it can predict material failure rates and help determine design requirements for printed circuit boards and similar products. Product enables engineers to hone manufacturing performance and reconfigure operations to be more efficient and reduce waste. Predictive design is about analyzing current and historical data and generating a model to help predict future outcomes. In tests, the tool accurately predicted methods to reduce and eliminate laminate crack initiation and propagation on a printed circuit board.
