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.

In this new Design News feature, "How it Works," we’re starting off by examining the inner workings of the electronic cigarette. While e-cigarettes seemed like a gimmick just two or three years ago, they’re catching fire -- so to speak. Sales topped $1 billion last year and are set to hit $10 billion by 2017. Cigarette companies are fighting back by buying up e-cigarette manufacturers.
Microchip recently released the 3D TouchPad, the first USB PC Peripheral device that couples 2D multi-touch input with 3D air gesture technology. The company seeks the help of developers to further enhance the capabilities of the technology.
Made by Monkeys highlights products that somehow slipped by the QC cops.
To give engineers a better idea of the range of resins and polymers available as alternatives to other materials, this Technology Roundup presents several articles on engineering plastics that can do the job.
Mac Cameron of Stratasys describes the company’s Connex3 technology, which allows users to 3D-print complex parts in one build with no assembly required.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
