Smaller enterprises are not impervious to the design challenges intrinsic to the growing intricacy of electrical and electronic (E/E) systems. In reality, owing to their inherent qualities, small-scale production and design companies may be even more affected by these changes than their larger counterparts.

In this brief, explore the new era of complexity and specific challenges and recommendations for small and medium-sized businesses from Chad Jackson, lead Chief Analyst at Lifecycle Insights.

Rising E/E Systems Complexity in Small Scale Manufacturing Can Be Helped by Collaborative Engineering

A recent study mentioned in the brief reveals that engineering respondents are observing a widespread increase in complexity. This article provides guidance to smaller engineering and manufacturing companies to address this challenge in product development. It delves deeply into the factors driving the escalating E/E complexity, evaluates the necessity for greater collaboration and coordination among suppliers and engineering teams, and analyzes the impact of cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions from a scientific perspective.

In This Paper, You Will Find:

  • discussion of what is causing rising E/E complexity and some unique challenges faced by small companies
  • how and why it is necessary to effectively enable collaboration tools
  • how to embrace a less manual approach
  • the importance of utilizing best practices and how today’s engineering tools can enable this
  • ways to free up engineers (who may already be taking on several different roles in small companies) by reducing the load on IT resources
  • recommendations to meet rising complexity head-on
