This white paper describes a technique for defining processes called SIPOC (Suppliers, Inputs, Process, Outputs, and Customers). SIPOC provides a structured way to define the key elements of any process. SIPOC can be used as a means of defining any of the service management processes presented in ITIL® best practices. Furthermore, SIPOC can be used as the preliminary input into the more formal documentation of a process in one of many process design tools.
Switches play a vital role in moving data from one device to another. Specifically, switches greatly improve network performance, compared to hubs, by providing dedicated bandwidth to each end device, supporting full-duplex connectivity, utilizing the MAC address table to make forwarding decisions, and utilizing ASICs and CAM tables to increase the rate at which frames can be processed.

Cisco recently announced changes to the existing voice and video certifications and detailed the new collaboration certification portfolio. This white paper provides an overview of the changes to Cisco certifications with respect to voice and video, outlining dates, and deadlines that may affect your certification process.
Security is complicated, which has led to the many misconceptions and misunderstandings. By paying attention to these 10 concerns that security experts want you to know, you can gain knowledge and understanding about security and be securer both at work and in your personal life.
We build requirements at a quantum level to connect the vital elements, which are needed to realize a requirement. As we consider the relationships between the behaviors, actions, and responses, we begin to identify and associate the characteristics and conditions, which will drive and constrain the behaviors. Realizing a requirement means joining these elements together and noting them as elements of the requirement and not individual requirements in of themselves.
Authored by the engineers or scientists who did the work, the briefs span a wide array of fields, including electronics, physical sciences, materials, computer software, mechanics, machinery/automation, manufacturing/fabrication, mathematics/information sciences, and life sciences. NASA Tech Briefs also contains feature articles on successful NASA spinoffs, profiles of NASA tech transfer resources, news briefs, and application stories. Regular columns describe new patents, industry products, software, and literature.
3D Printing is more than just prototyping. Today, 3D Printing offers transformative advantages at every phase of creation, from initial concept design to production of final products and all steps in between. Today's competitive environment makes choosing the right 3D printers more important than ever.
Learn how to choose the right 3D printer for any application:
The key performance attributes to consider
Why in some cases, acquiring multiple technologies may be the answer to satisfy your unique application needs
And much more
Your application will help you decide what color quality you require in a 3D printer. Whether you're printing conceptual models, architectural models, figurines, medical models or artistic pieces, color is clearly important for your 3D models. But to get true, life-like color, there is no alternative to the ColorJet Printing (CJP) technology from 3D Systems.
In the world of product design and manufacturing, the bill of materials (BOMs) is a critical product information record for both the engineering and manufacturing teams. Managing BOMs with the wrong tools can cause product errors, delays and compliance failures.
In this whitepaper, we outline the problems with manual BOM management tools like spreadsheets and email and compare them to a dedicated BOM management system.
As the nature of product development shifts to keep up with the pace of global innovation, manufacturers must understand that using the wrong tools can cripple a company's ability to innovate and deliver quality products on time.

The limitations and risks of managing your bill of materials (BOM) with the wrong tool
The difference between PDM and PLM systems and the benefits of using both
Efficient ways to share product data with internal team members and external partners
Today's innovative companies are built on the shoulders of the engineering teams responsible for designing products. Smart companies invest in tools that translate into better products. A modern Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution removes tedious admin responsibilities, streamlines the design environment, and empowers engineers to collaborate more efficiently with other departments.
In short, PLM enables engineers to make the organization more profitable by allowing them to spend more time focused on the task they do best: designing innovative, world-class products.
In this whitepaper, we focus on how PLM empowers engineers to spend more time on product design by optimizing their relationship with the different departments across the organization with which they must interact.
How PLM streamlines the design cycle
The keys to empowering engineers
Real world business examples of PLM success
Often small to medium-sized businesses make do with the tools they have to manage their product data. Paper, spreadsheets and email are often used throughout the product development and engineering change management processes. These tools can wreak havoc when product information is released into production.
But there’s no need to settle for inefficient, frustrating product change management. There are other options to help control product information and share changes across the organization and supply chain.
This whitepaper outlines three product change management realities which may be holding you back and five fixes to rescue your change process.

New advancements in battery technology are having a disruptive impact on product design in the dynamic consumer electronics sector.
It's a domino effect. When a change to a component occurs there's a rapid engineering effort to incorporate, source and purchase the component. Manufacturing line/tooling, cut-ins, as well as the production floor are impacted and then there's dealing with scrap and rework, marketing and servicing.
Companies without the vision and solution to respond to change and adopt new technologies quickly could lose in this competitive fast-paced high tech market.
Discover how Arena PLM helps product companies shift product direction quickly to turn today's disruptive changes into tomorrow's "Next Big Thing".
