How Connected Products and Modular Design Can Improve Your Product Quality

How Connected Products and Modular Design Can Improve Your Product Quality


Note: The following article appeared on September 24, 2018 in EETimes Internet of Things Design Line.

Using feedback from products in the field to continuously improve design modules used as the basis for product development can increase product performance and reliability and reduce development time.

OEMs have made enormous strides in feeding back information from the manufacturing process into design to increase process yields. Metrics important to customers such as performance, reliability and usability would be much more useful inputs to the design process, but traditionally they have been much more difficult to obtain. Now Internet of Things platforms can collect and analyze this information and modular design systems can present it to designers in context.

Modular Board Design: A Platform Approach to Increase Product Variants and Decrease Components

It sounds like a paradox: electronics manufacturers can increase variation within a product line while using fewer electronic components. Reuse keeps product costs low, increases product flexibility and customization. Far from paradoxical, the approach is quite doable today through a process called modular board design coupled with predictive analysis numbers returned by the Internet of Things.
