FEATURE Support for large team development

Large-scale systems are usually developed in a distributed manner across companies, departments and sites.

Next Design includes a variety of support functions, such as the division of the scope of work for development by multiple teams, and integration with configuration management systems.

  • Multiview of differences before and after changes

    You can compare the differences with previous projects and revisions to identify changes.

    The difference view also supports multiple views, so you can intuitively see from different perspectives that you are updating the intended areas as intended.

  • Dividing the design into multiple files

    The design information can be split by the user into arbitrary file units. This allows multiple teams to develop in parallel, or to use files from other projects as a basis for development. These files can later be merged into one or split into smaller files, giving you the flexibility to manage files according to your organisation's structure. Only the necessary files can be provided to each design team member, allowing for flexible operation even when development is carried out across multiple companies, such as commissioned development.

  • Works with configuration management systems

    Next Design works closely with Git and Subversion, so operations such as committing and checking history can be completed on Next Design.

  • Partial loading makes light work of even large projects

    Partial loading of any model file in a project file can now be specified.
    This allows designers to read design data by focusing on the area they wish to view and edit, so that Next Design can operate quickly and proceed with design lightly, even in large-scale projects.

  • 64-bit version of Next Design for large projects

    The 64-bit version of Next Design can handle large projects that cannot be handled with the 32-bit version because it can take advantage of the large memory capacity of the PC.
    You can accumulate design assets and handle large model files without worry.
