Customization Drives Complexity - Why It's Hard to Design, Sell, and Produce "Simple" Products


It seems counterintuitive, but the process of selling, designing, and producing what appear to be "simple" products becomes surprisingly complex when manufacturers introduce high levels of customization.

At the same time that the visible options are being determined, other derived design decisions are often being made. For example, a window for a wide opening requires special engineering. If the width reaches a certain measurement, then reinforced glass must be used, the frame must be reinforced and an additional latch will be required. Often these changes are not visible to or specified by the customer, but make a significant Read More

Data Center Projects: Advantages of Using a Reference Design


It is no longer practical or cost-effective to completely engineer all aspects of a unique data center. Re-use of proven, documented subsystems or complete designs is a best practice for both new data centers and for upgrades to existing data centers. Adopting a well-conceived reference design can have a positive impact on both the project itself, as well as on the operation of the data center over its lifetime. Reference designs simplify and shorten the planning and implementation process and reduce downtime risks once up and running. In this paper reference designs are defined and their benefits are explained.
