Summary

Savings on time and materials are certainly enough to justify a look at Centric's Innovation products for functional prototyping, but what really matters is the number of iterations made possible early in the design window, when design parameters are not frozen yet. The vendor's new Innovation Center promises still more depth to the critical process of capturing customer needs in designing a concept BOM.
