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".

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.

Topics include:

  • How PLM streamlines the design cycle
  • The keys to empowering engineers
  • Real world business examples of PLM success

More than half of total maintenance costs are directly related to lubrication related failures.

In operations that combine harsh temperature and pressure environments as well as chemical exposure, traditional petroleum-based lubricants break down and require more frequent machine maintenance.

Traditional synthetics are often only marginally better. One class of nontraditional synthetic lubricants, perfluoropolyether or PFPE, has superior performance to petroleum-based synthetics, reducing failure, maintenance cost and production downtime.

This white paper shows how PFPE industrial lubrication offer superior equipment protection and reduced production downtime compared to conventional lubricants.

Debugging is the most time-consuming and costly phase of the software development lifecycle. The hardest step in solving software bugs is working backward from a software failure to the original program error. Conventional debugging techniques allow users to control program execution only in the forward direction, forcing developers to apply time-consuming methods to attempt to identify the problem. Reverse debugging technologies have the potential to greatly reduce the time required to identify and solve many of the most difficult bugs by adding the ability to replay parallel program execution. This white paper explains the challenges presented by parallel debugging and the value of a reverse capability to achieve significant productivity gains.

Security weaknesses today occur most often in software that is accessible from a user’s desktop, tablet, or mobile device. Web-based applications, network-enabled or controlled devices, and widely-used mobile software are the applications most targeted. This is followed by infrastructure applications such as operating systems, web servers, and browser-based software including plug-ins and extensions. The cause of these weaknesses typically stems from the developer not anticipating how the software could be misused and made to perform actions it wasn’t designed to do. The root problem is often a lack of secure input handling to block any application input or content that has not first been scanned for and had any harmful aspects filtered out.

It is not unheard of for some construction lawsuits to rise into the multiple hundreds of thousands of dollars, and, in some cases, for damages to reach into the millions. Even small firms performing routine, limited work should not assume they are safe from such large claims. No matter how small your company’s role on a construction project, you can still be sued for any amount of damages. One geotechnical engineer we defended, who performed only 5 site sample borings, was later sued for over $200,000 on a $1,000 contract. No one who works in the construction field is immune from large claims.

The combination of tough markets, reduced headcount, tight budgets, and aggressive new product development targets means that manufacturers need to be able to design and develop products extremely efficiently to get the most out of their engineering efforts.

"Product data management is the fundamental building block of any engineering software strategy and helps companies get the most out of their precious engineering resources," argues analyst Jim Brown in this 11 page white paper.

In this white paper by Tech-Clarity you will learn:

  • How companies adapt their PDM strategy to match their corporate strategy
  • How to control product data
  • The keys to collaborating on product data
  • How to use PDM to automate product-related processes

A "practical PLM" solution delivers efficiencies right out of the gate, while easily scaling to meet evolving needs. To do that, the solution has to allow product development teams to focus on the big 4 problems that plague so many engineering departments:

  1. Finding files
  2. Making revisions without errors
  3. Controlling change orders
  4. Dropped balls due to poor collaboration

In this 8 page white paper, the editors at Desktop Engineering explore how three companies addressed those challenges by implementing practical PLM solutions.

Today, engineering must balance the needs of manufacturing, procurement, customers and more, alongside those of the product's form, fit and function.

According to analyst Chad Jackson of Lifecycle Insights, executive leadership is calling for more visibility into engineering processes than ever before. Many companies deploy Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) or Product Data Management (PDM) solutions to enable these changes.

In this well researched eBook from Lifecycle Insights, you will learn the facts about four major engineering product development challenges and the steps successful organizations take to address them:

  • Get it right with less than ever
  • Managing and mitigating regulatory and legal risk
  • Global development across the enterprise
  • Accelerating responsiveness

Product Change Management

w_aren83c.gif

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.

w_gloc181c.gifThis 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.

Switching Operations

w_gloc182c.gifSwitches 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.
