Conjoint Innovation

Heterogeneous teams offer the best solutions for a given problem. This is true not only for the heads of huge internet concerns, but also for small and medium-sized companies. Newest research results show that looking at a problem from a maximum number of different perspectives leads towards innovative solutions. Consequently, the most important aspect to consider is the team composition. Read more on this issue in the latest column by Dr. Christoph Budelmann.

26th FED Conference

During the 26th FED Conference 2018 in Bamberg managing director Jeannine Budelmann gives a speech on “Optimized manual mounting of circuit boards using data glasses - Practical experience report research project OptED”. The event hosted by the Association of Design, Circuit Boards and Electronics Manufacturing this year focusses on design and manufacturing processes for smart electronics. Key points are multifunctional circuit boards as well as three-dimensional integrated circuit packaging.

Innovation for Slackers

To bring about change that might be unpleasant at first but helps surviving on the market in the long run can especially be difficult for small and medium sized companies. However, innovation actually pays off. Even if the current product range promises high turnover and profits in the present economic climate companies should consider innovations concerning their products and production. Innovation does not always mean product modification. In vending it can also aim at development strategies, up-to-date platforms and professionalized production processes.

Internet of Things Congress

At the congress “Internet of Things – From Sensor to Cloud” taking place in Munich October 25th, Jeannine Budelmann will discuss “Augmented reality glasses connected to ERP systems to optimize manual mounting of circuit boards”. As the managing director of Budelmann Elektronik (specialized in customized hard and software solutions), she is aware of difficulties during manual assembly. “Manual assembly of circuit boards is prone to mistakes on several levels. Sometimes it can be difficult to place the last component between two already mounted ones.

Small Quantities - High Price?

Mass customization is not only a trend in consumer markets but also become more relevant in business-to-business contexts. But how can manufacturers offer small quantities at attractive prices?

Key to success is the modularization of the most important components. This can mean realizing different basic functionalities with one standardized board. Utilization of cross-vendor standards can also help offering small quantities at attractive prices since single components can easily be replaced by compatible other ones.
