Manually routing systems in CAD can present several challenges for engineers, such as the time-consuming nature of the process, the potential for errors, lack of standardization, inefficiency and difficulty in adapting to design changes. This can lead to costly rework and design delays, making the process less efficient for engineers and organizations.
Automated routing algorithms can increase speed and accuracy, provide more efficient and standardized way of working, allow for error checking, adapt to design changes and follow specific design standards. This can help to streamline the routing process, reduce errors and inconsistencies, and ensure designs are completed on time and within budget. Additionally, many CAD software providers have developed automated routing algorithms that can be integrated into their software.
