Common pitfalls of fast-paced electrical systems design from prototyping to production

Sanu Warrier, Zuken USA

Sanu Warrier, Zuken USAIndustry best practices and design principles have been established after trial and error done through multiple iterations by various established industries. The door for innovation is always open and blazing a new trail is the most often the best way to be part of the next evolutionary leap in technology. The road to success though has a lot of wrecks along the side, some due to not so great ideas and some due to the most common syndrome of all – not learning from others’ mistakes.

When it comes to design and documentation, the major points of failure for electrical R&D and production designs teams alike can be summarized as follows into the following when it comes to design and documentation:

  • Narrow focus on short term gains without keeping the intermediate goals in sight.
    • Prototypes unviable for even short production runs
    • Costly errors erode competitive edge
    • Unplanned delays increase opportunity costs
  • Disconnected design tools within the electrical discipline
    • Increased errors and development time.
    • Direct impact on cost of development.
  • Out of sync Schematicsschematics, Harness harness and enclosure documentations causing manual data entry which that is extremely susceptible to human error.
    • System components not in sync with logical schematics lead to waste ofage both capital and time.
    • Multitude of small errors stack quickly to erode confidence in products and threaten project viability.

Attendees will learn the steps and processes involved with ensuring:

  • Rapid development without with minimal errors.
  • Avoiding rework to meet tight deadlines.
  • Maintaining consistency and accuracy of data across the design and driving documentation from real design data.
  • Capturing design intent that can be shared across the design teams and with stake holders to increase technical visibility.

Zuken USA believes in innovation and partnering with companies driving innovation towards success. We are proud partners of major automotive, defense, aerospace, transportation and many other industries helping the engineering teams put their best foot forward. We are happy to share the knowledge and expertise we have gained from our 40 years of industry experience.

ECTC: 2018 IEEE 68th Electronic Components and Technology Conference @ Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina
May 29 @ 8:19 pm – Jun 1 @ 9:19 pm

ECTC logoThe Electronic Components and Technology Conference (ECTC) is the premier international event that brings together the best in packaging, components and microelectronic systems science, technology and education in an environment of cooperation and technical exchange. ECTC is sponsored by the IEEE Electronics Packaging Society.

PCB West 2018
Sep 13 all-day

For 26 years PCB West has trained designers, fabricators and, lately, assemblers on making printed circuit boards for every product or use imaginable. The September 2017 event attracted nearly 2,000 designers and engineers and more than 100 exhibitors for the three-day technical conference and one-day sold-out exhibition. From high reliability military/aerospace to cutting-edge IoT and wearables, there’s something for everyone involved in the electronics supply chain. This is one show you cannot afford to miss.
