As smart technologies proliferate in the modern world, the industry is experiencing a widening gap between coming up with ideas and having the ability to execute them.
"If we look at product innovation across the electronics industry and across all markets, we see trend where complexity of product design goes through the roof," Dr. Erik H. Volkerink, chief technology officer of Flextronics, told EBN in an interview. "The tools are not keeping pace. That growing gap is causing a lot of challenges, while time to market pressures is paramount. Fundamentally, a different paradigm is required for product innovation."
Volkerink presented a keynote on this topic at the Silicon Valley Open Innovation Summit, being held in conjunction with EE Live!, being held in San Jose. The talk, titled Accelerating Product Innovation: Solving Complexity and Productivity Gap, hopes to propose a new approach to product innovation.
