Changing Lanes Quickly and Safely with Automotive ALM

There are few things more ubiquitous today than your car, especially within the fast-paced confines of our commuter culture. Now, as of 2016, no living generation can claim the automobile as anything less than the quintessential means of transportation.

As such, consumers expect new vehicles to provide expedient travel from place to place, better fuel economy year-over-year, and an assurance that the roads are growing more secure with added safety features.

Manufacturers are perpetually striking a balance between providing cost-effective hardware improvements that will simultaneously satisfy the evolving requirements of style, safety, and compliance. That’s more or less been the auto industry goal for 30+ years. (more…)

Comprehensive Medical Device Risk Management

One of the more difficult system development tasks in the context of a new medical device is how to organize and develop the product risk management strategy. When contemplating how to construct a system to manage this task, it’s necessary to consult not only company work flows and processes, but standards adopted by the competent authorities meant to standardize how medical device products are developed and approved.

Standards

At the time of this writing, the two standards used in definition and implementation of medical device risk management are ISO 14971:2009 and TIR 24971:2013. Europe has added to the mix by approving an EN ISO version of 14971, which is EN ISO 14971:2012. The EN version is different in several important aspects, and is required if the company is selling into Europe. (more…)

Guest Post: Software and Security of Connected Products, Part One

Part 1: Role of software in product development
by Oleg Shilovitsky @ Beyond PLM

We live in the era of smart products. The last decade of mobile device technology created a new platform – smartphones. Originally designed as a communication device, smartphones transformed into a ubiquitous platform of elements – chip, WiFi, memory, display, Bluetooth, storage, and similar products that can be reused in every product.

The cost of these components has declined significantly in the last few years. The average person today travels with a mobile device that has the computational capability equal – or even more powerful – than computers that the aerospace industry uses for navigation. If you think about the cost and availability of Raspberry Pi and Arduino, computers built on single circuit boards, you can understand why and how it revolutionizes many products in the modern era. However, widespread use of these devices has drawbacks that must be properly addressed. (more…)
