Webinar: Capability vs Complexity: Building Smarter Products

by @ 11:37 am. Filed under ALL, Communications, Computers/Software, Electronics Design, Engineering Mgmt

THURSDAY December 9, 2010
Speakers: Dominic Tavassoli, Program Director, IBM; Dave West, Principal Analyst, Forrester Research
Time: 8:00 AM – 9:00 AM
Cost: none
Place: on the Web
RSVP: through the website

Delivering the right products at the right time can provide a powerful boost to a manufacturerâ??s bottom line.? However, this is easier said than done, due to the ever increasing complexity associated with todayâ??s products.? Systems of systems, an unprecedented amount of software, and global development are just some of the key characteristics we face today that contribute to the development challenge.
In this conversation, Dave West, principle analyst at Forrester Research and Dominic Tavassoli of IBM will discuss the benefits and pitfalls associated with developing smarter products.? They will explore the tradeoffs associated with capability (i.e. function, time to market) versus the complexity introduced by additional product features and ecosystem interoperability that actually make a product “smarter”.
