Big-Picture Systems Engineering for Successful Product Design
Date / Time: Wednesday, June 27, 2012, 02:00 p.m. New York
Overview: Each new generation of products is far more sophisticated than the previous generation, and the escalating use of software-driven electronics is only compounding the complexity. This, coupled with the increasing weight of regulatory and compliance requirements, demands big-picture, systems-level thinking across the product lifecycle.
Leading-edge companies are now getting serious about systems engineering concepts, embracing tools and approaches to create a systems-level view of the product that ensures that all mechanical, electrical, controls, and software designs are kept in sync. Mark Sampson, product manager, Requirements and Systems Engineering, at Siemens PLM Software, joins Design News CAD Editor Beth Stackpole in this radio program to explore how an integrated systems engineering approach puts the big picture into focus and helps manage complex interactions between many interacting subsystems.

Unlike industrial robots, which suffered a slight overall slump in 2012, service robots continue to be increasingly in demand. The majority are used for defense, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs); and agriculture, such as milking robots.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
