The Embedded Software Imperative
Tech-Clarity research shows that manufacturers have grown the amount of software in their products, the importance of product software, and the level of innovation driven by software over the last five years. This trend drives greater demand for embedded software development, resulting in almost three-quarters of manufacturers increasing the ratio of software engineers to other engineers. The increased prevalence, strategic importance, and resulting complexity demand that manufacturers become world-class software development and delivery companies. Tech-Clarity offers the following ten tips to help companies overcome these challenges by streamlining product development using systems engineering best practices:
- Integrate and Collaborate
- Keep Requirements in Focus
- Define and Optimize the Architecture
- Align with Agile as Applicable
- Reuse Intelligently
- Model to Understand and Collaborate
- Proactively Manage Change
- Formalize Repeatable Processes
- Enable Visibility and Traceability
- Validate and Verify Early
