New Model Management capabilities are now available in the SPB 16.6 Allegro Design Workbench (ADW) release.
The new model management capability involves creating an environment that manages new model types for the PCB Librarian and other model editors. The benefits:
Librarians create new models using copy or copy as from disk. The Library Flow supports a generic model browser for a new model to support this use model. This allows the librarian to create a model from either a copy or do a Copy As, at the time of entering the metadata of the model in DBEditor . This capability has been added generically to all existing and new models in ADW. This feature eliminates the need of copying the model to the librarian’s work area after entering the metadata.

I look forward to your feedback.
