At best, it can be detected with a script error on the board, usually the same – only a critical site to be further control. In the case of the comparison of projects – it's interesting or distinctive design a common symptom of PCP. C based on what opportunities does the PADS-script after an error detection or indication of a critical place in design can be divided by the tools for adjusting design (automatically or semi-automatically) or by suggesting changes until just a designer (the third feature of the proposed classification). It should also be noted that the scripting capabilities are not unlimited, since you can control only those objects and their characteristics, which provides for the use of PADS (ActiveX Automation Members). There is, unfortunately, also large number of objects and their properties that can be accessed through OLE and Basic Scripts Editor is impossible. For example, the contours of the components (Keepout) in the number of objects are missing. The same applies to the possibilities of changing the characteristics of objects, most of the They can only be read but can not be changed (to be precise, the change in performance still possible, but it is quite difficult and by Mentor Graphics from some considerations, strictly speaking, is not provided). Analyzing documents with specific requirements for projects PP (the so-called Designe Rules), it is easy to identify reserves efficiency PADS-developed tools. The mere mention of names of components or circuits in the Designe Rules allows you to quickly find the object on the board or in the scheme.
