Many companies are going through the transition from developing mechanically oriented products to smart, connected ones. Overall, that transition includes a sea of changes, many of them challenging. This includes adding the organizational capability to develop embedded code, electrical systems, or rigid-flex electronics. One of the easier adjustments, however, is implementing an Internet of Things …
Building the Digital Thread for Harness Design
What is a Digital Thread when it comes to harness design? This post details that definition and why it is so important to the development of smart, connected products.
The Rising Demand for Routed Electrical Collaboration
The design of harnesses isn’t always the highest priority in the development of smart, connected products. Yet, errors in their design can have a longstanding detrimental effect. In this post, we look at designing them concurrently and collaboratively instead.
Harness Design: On the Critical Path
In this post, we’re going to look at the timing of the development of harnesses, the needs of modern engineers to support concurrent harness design, and the technology capabilities needed to enable that change.
It Takes Two: Modern Circuit Board Design
