Parallel Prototyping and the Engineer’s Dilemma

R&D Engineers face rapidly shrinking development cycles and rising competitive pressures. In the high-stakes practice of regulatory compliance, balancing development costs with speed, safety and performance are critical to a product’s success. This paper demonstrates how the parallel prototyping of two materials in a heating component contributes to the return on investment of a new product launch in the medical device industry. The study addresses the verification, validation, form and fit testing relative to the FDA approval process, as well as its execution within component design, product design and pilot production.

Smart Building Responds to all Climate Conditions

A grid of sensors embedded into an innovative building insulation activates specific façade components to optimize energy savings while improving aesthetics. This high-tech kind of retrofitting approach uses several types of modules that allow real-time monitoring. The multifunctional modular façade system is able to adapt to a variety of climatic conditions.

Vibration Table Promises Different Ways of Testing

Vibration machines are crucial to test the forces that make things fall apart in the bumpy real world, from small components to complete systems like airplanes or nuclear weapons. Large, high-frequency vibration machines that shake things in several directions simultaneously are relatively new. Sandia National Laboratories has developed a large, high-frequency, 6-degrees-of-freedom (6DOF) vibration machine to qualify weapons components and revolutionize the way it does mechanical testing.

Magnetics Design: Specification, Performance & Economics

An informative white paper from Datatronics Romoland, Inc., provides a discussion of the design, development and delivery of affordable magnetic components. The design development process begins once performance requirements are specified. Upon design approval, the procurement of materials for a prototype build is initiated. During this stage, specifications are not final and options remain open for cost-effective production. Specifications must be reviewed and design trade-offs evaluated to ensure that the technical requirements are economically attainable with consideration given to performance and tolerance in relation to affordable cost.
