Getting back to design: Offloading the management

Chad Jackson

Engineering efficiency

Today’s engineers are simply overworked. They have a range of responsibilities that lead them out to the shop floor, into conference rooms, and, of course, back to their desks. Furthermore, engineers must find a feasible if not the best possible product design in a short amount of time. They often have a critical design review looming, as development schedules have become even more compressed.

The technologies used to design products are incredibly powerful, but generate complex digital artifacts that must be managed. Many engineers believe that manually managing all these digital artifacts is just part of the job. Well, it’s not. It consumes a lot of their time. This eBook covers how to reclaim that time and get back to design.
