Developing Sofware-Intensive Products

Perspective: Developing Software-Intensive Products: Addressing the Innovation-Complexity Conundrum presents survey data and analysis to help manufacturers understand the benefits and challenges of developing products that derive a significant amount of their capabilities from software. The terms “embedded software” and “mechatronics” really don’t describe the varied uses of software in today’s products from automobiles to appliances.

Design West – Embedded Software Conference

Jim Brown shares the results of a recent survey in a presentation with Matt Klassen of PTC at Design West, 2012 in San Jose, California. The presentation reveals the “Innovation-Complexity Conundrum.” Manufacturers are increasing the amount, importance, and innovation derived from product software resulting in important business benefits – but driving increased product development complexity.
