/Kalender/EDM Forum: Electronic Product Development

EDM Forum: Electronic Product Development

March 26, 2020 | imec, Leuven

This event is postponed to a later date. More information to follow soon.

About the course

The course discusses the New Product Exploration (NPE), Planning (NPP) and Introduction (NPI) development stages that bring an electronic product from idea to the end user. The relationship with the product life cycle stages and life cycle processes defined per ISO/IEC/IEEE System and Software Engineering standards is explained.  The specific characteristics of the electronic supply chain and the associated smart product development challenges are presented. A development methodology capable to cope with these challenges is explained as well as the important role of Design-for-eXcellence.
A short introduction to Printed Circuit Board technology, manufacturing and assembly closes the session.
