PL1855I - Take Your Blinders Off

How do good designs turn into great designs? Certainly, ingenuity plays a role, but maybe even more so by making good decisions as the design matures. Reuse is proclaimed to help control costs and time to market, both key components of great designs, but only if you choose what parts and subsystems to reuse wisely. And that requires performing due diligence on those choices. Consider the value of knowing costing, inventory, lead time, non-conformance, and MRP planning data before choosing. What if you could have that data for your selected list of comparable parts at your fingertips at any moment? How much better would your design decisions be? In this 15 min session, we’ll give some insight into a digital thread solution to this challenge using ThingWorx.
