How product engineering approaches for electronics can serve insights for the entire organization
Experts on this topic For much of the history of electronics products, data has been valuable but not central to the design process. Data has offered validation, been an output of usage or input into products. But now, data capture is a vital design consideration that exists alongside mechanical, electrical, electronic and software engineering. Thinking machines will leverage data across a machine’s lifecycle to help deliver more relevant and educated interactions. Captured data will help answer questions across the organization. As design becomes more data-centric, the potential for new opportunities and new businesses will cause data to be viewed more like intellectual property.
