Design for analytics in IoT product development

Written by Steve Shoaf | December 1, 2016 | Blog, Continuous Engineering, Systems Engineering

In my last blog post, I wrote about a feedback loop in which operational data can be used to improve design—to optimize products, systems or processes, in support of improved business outcomes. The instantiation of this feedback loop is known as the digital thread. In this blog, I’d like to explore the idea of design more
