CoVent-19 Challenge: Innovate2Ventilate
As part of our role to play in the pandemic, we were proud sponsors of the CoVent-19 challenge alongside companies such as Ximedica, Stratasys, Onshape and GrabCAD. The aim of the challenge was to create life-saving equipment in an open-source, crowdsourced, highly affordable, and royalty-free manner, challenging the normal status quo innovation of medical devices.
Efficient Engineering 101 (I): Requirement-Driven vs. Test-Driven
Mini Series: Efficient Engineering 101 Developing complex hardware in a fast-growing engineering team is not an easy task. While a small team will grow initially quite organically, all teams hit the point where they for the first time have to get serious about defining processes and tools.
How To Set Up a “Single Source of Truth” for Your Project
If you’re starting a new project to build a complex piece of hardware, you might be looking for a more ‘agile’ way of doing things. One of the most important ways to streamline the engineering process is a data repository tool, a “single source of truth” where all latest design data and decisions are stored, linked to requirements and key performance indicators, tracked, summarized and documented.
Valispace 2.0 is here
We’re feeling refreshed! As the team grows we start asking ourselves tough questions to make sure we’re moving in the right direction. This is why our team has spent the last few months figuring out the pillars in which we sustain our values and ambitions by answering three important questions: why, how and what.
Why data matters for hardware engineering companies
As a hardware engineering company, you are maybe not focused on ‘big data’ and artificial intelligence in itself, still being able to work with sizable amounts of data and extracting knowledge out of them is quickly becoming an important competitive advantage.
Why you need more than a spreadsheet for your engineering data
When explaining the basic concepts of Valispace – collaboration, technical data exchange, connecting data with formulas – a question that often comes up is how Valispace compares with spreadsheets, and especially with cloud-based spreadsheet such as Excel Online and Google Sheets.
