A Single Source of the Truth for the BOM Still Doesn’t Exist
It is crazy how time flies. Blink and 2015 is gone. I guess that’s what happens when you get busy. I hope that 2016 decides to pass by a little more slowly. But I don’t think I’ll have much luck with that. Regardless, I have a topic that I’ve wanted to touch upon for quite …
No More Excuses: It’s Time to Merge MCAD and ECAD
I have a confession. Something’s been bothering me. Amidst all of the talk about the Internet of Things, it doesn’t seem to get much airplay. I’ve asked providers of software for engineering about it several times, but it gets roundly put aside and ignored. Few seem to care. But for me, I just can’t reconcile …
