Keep no Secrets, Inflict no Surprises.

Posted by Paul Johnston

Paul Johnston Out with the old, in with the new. In my last blog I made some serious points in a lighthearted way about the importance of communication. Quite often when you get to lay your hands on some new features of the Capital software, you do it without some lead-in steps. Especially if 1) you have been anticipating new functionality, and 2) you are by nature an enthusiastic early adopter it is hard for me … Read More

Blunt talking happens at the sharp end.

Posted by Paul Johnston

Paul Johnston Developing global platform cars is not easy. The workload of engineers designing electrical interconnect and delivering a manufacturing BOM for suppliers is considerable. The reality of electrical and electronic feature proliferation in a vehicle platform is somewhere between harsh and vicious for electrical design and wiring engineers. Not that I’ve personally tried to knock together a car … Read More

In praise of the trainers.

Paul Johnston I highlighted the powerful influence of customer lbrarians in delivering automation in the design of electrical systems’ interconnects using the capital suite of programs. Librarians get proficient initially through the ministrations of a trainer to guide them through the concepts of the software and how these apply to their working lives. I’ve also singled out the product management staff … Read More

Paul Johnston Let’s look briefly at cause and effect. In previous notes on this subject, I remarked choices between in-sourced or outsourced information technology solutions in an electrical design processes yield consequences .  What’s in it for you? Knowing more about these issues will inform your choices.  A common way of referring to a tangle of human-factor issues is to say decisions are “political.” Radical … Read More

Build or buy

Posted by Paul Johnston

Paul Johnston Coming from Great Britain to live and work in the USA it still strikes me as curious that people would describe how they had “built their house.” In the UK - where people would say “bought a house.”  When you are getting a new house, in both locales home buyers would pay someone to build it. The contractor would offer choices of kitchen and bathroom fittings, floor plan, interior … Read More

Paul Johnston Since I began working in the realm of software systems for electrical interconnect design I have seen increased user choice in on-and off-road vehicles. I have read the technical papers and marvelled at the memorable phrase “combinatorial explosion” used to refer to the options a buyer of a high-end new passenger car is able to order. Choice is good right? If you are fortunate enough to be able to … Read More
