This paper describes a general methodology of how electrical circuit design data are mapped into an intermediate analyzable representation that supports the information requirement of several thermomechanical analyses, including product optimization/idealization. This paper describes other issues encountered, such as how to integrate product data that spans more than one tool, how to modify and add analysis data necessary during analysis, and how to use data stored in the analysis module from different programing environments. The advantage this process offers is also described by considering a PWBA (Printed Wiring Board Assembly) design, such as layout and layup in an electrical design system.
