Systems engineering and product analytics get my vote

Thanks, Beth, great slideshow. The convergence of 3D printing and content tools gets my vote for the most interesting ones. Cloud and social networking stuff get a lot of buzz, but I guess I'm still as skeptical as many of those veteran engineers. The ones I think will be most important are the less flashy, less buzzy ones: systems engineering--it's a long time coming--and product analytics. Both are far-reaching in both implementation and implications, and they're interrelated, as well.

Social media and design

Nice slide show, Beth. The one that will be fun to watch is the development of social media in the design process. In a story you did recently, you talked about design engineers taking cues from a group outside the actual design process. Now that idea was new.
