Working for a major SDO, part of my job is helping others to make a query for parts in a design as efficient as possible. That is, I often hear "I'd like to be able to query against a lot of part attributes and get a table of part numbers that satisfy my constraints." Then the request I get is to do additional queries to further narrow the list. I've heard this from a handful of design engineers, and I'm curious as to how representative this is. Is this truly an issue when creating a design? Is a lot of time wasted looking for parts specs? From what I understand, the desire to look for parts listed in a spec is due to the belief that a part associated with a spec will cost less than one created without one.

A lot has changed since the 90s. You don't surf the Web using dial-up anymore, so why are you still using a legacy PLM solution that's blocking your ability to innovate? To develop and launch products today, you need a flexible, cloud-based PLM, not a solution that's stuck in the past. Download Now
Current approaches used to tackle the complexities of a vehicleâ€™s electrical and electronics (E/E) architecture are both cost prohibitive and lacking in performance. Utilizing virtualization in automotive software architecture provides a better approach. This can be achieved by encapsulating different heterogeneous automotive platforms inside virtual machines running on the same hardware. Download Now
