PLM vs. ALM – Which to use for Electronic Board Systems?
During the development of electronic board systems, printed circuit boards, multi-board systems, and the like (for this discussion they will be called “electronic board systems” to encompass them all), using Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) seemed to be a natural progression. PLM was traditionally used to manage mechanical hardware. It easily became the process for electronic …
Altimade: Connecting PCB Designers to Suppliers to Expedite Product Development
Ordering and testing a prototype is a key milestone in the development of printed circuit boards (PCB). That prototype is necessary to validate the design and test its performance. But this step can be daunting for many engineering teams. Ordering a PCB Prototype, a Critical Step Ordering a PCB prototype isn’t as simple as it …

Let’s talk about systems development’s full potential, which only results from a comprehensive approach. What are the aspects of a digital engineering approach?
Generative Engineering: Automation for Electrical Distribution Systems
How are engineering teams addressing the challenges of complex E/E systems? In this post, we discuss how engineering teams can address the challenges of this trend by harnessing design automation for E/E systems design, why the traditional approaches to engineering fall short and how teams are turning to generative engineering solutions.
What’s New in OpenBOM?
What is the latest with the OpenBOM and how does it help procurement work with engineering information?
If you’re not familiar with OpenBOM, it’s a cloud-based application you use through your browser to work with bills of materials.
Validating Systems Architectures from the Bottom Up
Products are becoming more feature-rich and more complex. Many organizations increasingly rely on systems engineering. In this post, I’ll dive into some common issues with developing systems architectures. I will focus on how to increase collaboration between detailed design and systems engineering teams through a validation step right before detailed design starts.
