The Systems Engineering 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. Products that combine mechanical, electrical, and software are compelling, but add tremendous product development complexity leading to quality issues, poor productivity, and delayed time to market. Tech-Clarity offers the following ten tips to help companies overcome these challenges by streamlining product development using systems engineering best practices:

  • Start with Requirements
  • Take Time for Conceptual Design
  • Optimize the Architecture
  • Reuse at all Levels of Design
  • Simulate the System
  • Manage Change
  • True Transparency
  • Track and Trace it All
  • Validate and Verify with the V
  • Manage Configurations Continuously
