We are all constantly challenged by the market on coming up with solutions quicker. Nowadays we have powerful CAD software, additive manufacturing and some other technologies that have enabled engineers to bring their creations faster into the production floor. However, we still face the process of going through datasheets, checking device compatibility, among other usual tasks. How are ultra-fast companies selecting solutions in less than 10 minutes? How do they harmonize the activities from functions such as Pre-Sales, Design Engineering, Purchasing, Controls Engineering and After Sales? How can we eliminate the constant concern of “will it work”?
