Modular board design coupled with predictive analysis results gathered from the Internet of Things keeps product costs low and increases flexibility and customization options.
The most powerful way to use this data is to reorganize the design process by basing it on modules that are continuously improved based on performance feedback. These optimized modules can then be shared and managed across the organization and used as the basis of the product development process.
Using feedback from products in the field to continuously improve design modules used as the basis for product development can increase product performance and reliability and reduce development time.
We all know that manufacturing yields and costs are the driving force behind product development, rather than product quality.
There is a concept connecting Robert Pirsig and Zuken, as wrenching on my Speed Triple and talking to customers made me understand.
In the electronics and electrical engineering design communities there is plenty of talk about IoT, particularly in relation to the opportunities, but arguably the more pressing issue right now is the need to design for security in the connected world.
