ervin0072002:  You seem very defensive.

Yes, I have had several hotshot young bosses - what upsets them most is when I show them up.  It is okay to disagree with your boss, UNLESS it turns out your boss is wrong, and you are right.  I have fixed machines that engineers and technicians with several years more education, several years more experience, and several years more seniority couldn't fix.  But now I am being immodest.

Sure, the world could survive without my skills.  Are you suggesting that the world could not survive without you ?  One day, many years from now, you will look back on this and wonder why it seemed so important at the time.

I have found that getting angry and tense doesn't help, so now I just try to find the humor in watching young hotshots flail and founder.  And if they do eventually ask for my help, I do try to help them.

What should be the perception of a product’s real-world performance with regard to the published spec sheet? While it is easy to assume that the product will operate according to spec, what variables should be considered, and is that a designer obligation or a customer responsibility? Or both?
Procurement actually means well. There is no question that procurement can do a better job of phrasing their questions or making connections between engineering’s goals and the processes underway. And if you are using the right deciphering code, the result can live up to -- or surpass -- your expectations.
Internal combustion engines are ruling power generation applications even today, and improvising them to churn out every slice of power is still an area of research for the engineering community.
If you are interested in adding FPGA technology to you engineering toolkit, grab some free tools and an evaluation kit and get started on your own FPGA project. It never hurts to expand your engineering toolbox, and FPGAs are only going to become more popular over the next few years.
With the growing demand for new-age applications, corrosion has become an inherent problem. Not only do epoxies confer excellent corrosion resistance, they are also easy to handle and process. However, one must be mindful of selecting the right epoxy system along with the appropriate application techniques for best results.
