The current economy has driven many companies to look for ways to take cost out of their products and make their products even more appealing with more feature rich, intelligent products. This is driving manufacturers to improve their system engineering processes to enable them to develop products consisting of mechanical components, electronics and embedded software. These products offer tremendous opportunities in terms of greater profitability when system engineering is done well, but when executed poorly, excessive cost is a significant risk.
This report offers guidance and steps to success to implement successful system engineering practices that will lead to greater profitability and avoid the risks of excessive costs.
