Here’s the paradox – high unemployment in the world’s skilled labor market, but companies are complaining about not having the right candidates. There seems to be no shortage of engineers out there eager to learn and get involved; but finding people with the right niche skillset and experience who can hit the ground running is tough, particularly if you are at the forefront of new technology.
Managing releases and revisions can involve a lot of time consuming effort involved in tracking of all changes, ensuring data consistency, while delivering against time pressures. Mike Werder takes a management perspective and introduces the importance of revision management in the electical design process on return on investment.
After having looked at how electrical engineers can impact the product development process by working with sales, systems engineering, testing and manufacturing, now I’m going to move onto collaborating with mechanical engineers and summarize with some conclusions.
After having looked at how electrical engineers can impact the product development process by working with sales and systems engineering in the last two posts in this series, now I’m going to move onto testing and manufacturing.
This is the second in my posts which talk about how electrical engineers can make a bigger impact on the product development process. Previously I focused on getting involved in the sales bidding and specification process, in part two I’m going to focus on systems engineering.
