Consumers and businesses alike demand and expect products that perform flawlessly, provide continually improving experiences, anticipate their needs, are small and light weight, and are fast, interactive, and simple to operate”, explains CIMdata.
That’s nothing new. But providing powerful, yet simple to use consumer electronic products is not a simple case anymore! Today’s electronics are so complex that no one person can hold the entire design in their mind. As a result we now have to abstract development and depend upon that abstraction to properly link underlying design detail to the overall design. Moreover, development teams are now often geographically distributed to attain lowest possible design costs. So, we trade improved outcomes for increased complexity. We then depend upon development experience software to manage the relationships for us. That’s not as simple as it sounds. It requires a vast range of experience considerations and capabilities, with many of them working against each other, thus demanding artful compromises in implementation.
Adding to this challenge, electronics and software are pervasive across many industries, requiring manufacturers in transportation, healthcare, business and other industries to act as if they were high –tech businesses. So, not only must these companies become highly competent in software and electronics development, they must do so at the cutting edge, managing all of the current complexity that many high tech manufacturers face.
CIMdata develops the challenges and solutions for electronics and High Tech products development in this whitepaper. I believe you will find key information for improving your next product development.
