Smart Connected Product Design
An IoT platform can be utilized to collect valuable hardware field performance metrics based on real world usage and deliver the results to the product development team.
Modular design is an emerging hardware design trend that has numerous benefits including design ownership, history, where-used traceability and comprehensive problem resolution.
For the first time ever, the design team can have real data that provides field failure traceability to the functional block. Until now, the design process focused on manufacturing yields and cost. Product quality is now measurable.
