Duration:53 minutes


Everything that moves from automobiles to trucks to heavy equipment such as cranes, tunnel boring and mining equipment have one thing in common: Embedded technologies and software is present in almost every component making them smarter, more complex and riskier to incorporate into the design, manufacturing and quality process. This webinar will focus on understanding and managing the risks of incorporating embedded technologies into your organizations’ products and processes prudently.

• Onboard computing systems in the average vehicle today are more sophisticated than the computers on the retired Space Shuttle fleet.

• Hackers are targeting keyless ignition systems and self-driving cars. Tunnel boring and mining equipment depend on data from geo-stationary satellite systems, RFID tags and smart warehouse equipment have revolutionized loading cargo ships, railroad cars and trucks.

• Using yesterday’s tools to design, verify and validate this new generation of technology squanders the critical time to market advantage you selected the embedded technology for in the first place. We will examine a new generation of flexible tools to replace spreadsheets and orchestrate all your processes and data from concept through design , hand-off to manufacturing to quality, supply chain and warranty management. We will focus on practical concrete examples that promote agility for change management while assuring fidelity to quality in a global 24/7 working environment.

Join us to gain an insight into strategies for adopting new technologies  while protecting customers and brand reputation.
