MIG Webinar: Collaboration & Intellectual Property (IP) Management Print E-mail
In most cases product development in the MEMS industry is a collaborative effort of several independent companies across the value chain.  Customer-tailored functions and specifications, customer in terms of OEM, etc., require a deep involvement of the customer throughout the complete value chain.  

New and emerging application areas, short development cycles, and tight competition are challenges for collaborative product engineering in this field. Typically a product is brought to life by contracting different companies for the development of a specific product or part of a product (then using several partners to collaboratively develop the product).  Often the varying stages of the product engineering flow are carried out by diverse companies (or at least different departments) in different locations.  This collaboration is accompanied by pitfalls arising from the distribution of tasks and knowledge as well as the interdependencies between the different product parts.  In such a development setting the communication, holistic technology information management and IP management become key success factors.  To successfully commercialize a new product, business partnerships throughout the supply chain require well managed expectations, clear organizational alignment and a well-structured, clearly defined collaborative engineering process.

This webinar introduces a comprehensive methodology blueprint for customer-oriented product engineering that takes into account the challenges of concurrent device and process development as well as the challenges of distributed, networked operations between customers, designers, foundries, OSATS, etc. Topics like handling of data from different sources and data silos, exchange of research and development data and IP Protection will be covered.

The webinar will commence on February 5th, 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM ET. For more information and registration, please visit http://www.memsindustrygroup.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageid=3446.

Tagesseminar:Technical and Market-based Innovationmanagement Method
Neue oder verbesserte Produkte zu entwickeln und auf dem Markt zu platzieren ist die Basis f√ľr nachhaltige Unternehmensentwicklung. Drei Anforderungen sind entscheidend f√ľr erfolgreiche Innovationsprozesse:
  • - Technologie: Wissenschaftlich-technische M√∂glichkeiten optimal nutzen
  • - Markt- und Gesellschaftsentwicklungen: Trends erkennen, Ver√§nderungen in bestehenden M√§rkten analysieren, neue M√§rkte schaffen
  • - Regulation und Auflagen: Regulatorische Vorgaben fr√ľhzeitig in den Prozess aufnehmen und Anforderungen an Dokumentation und sonstige Compliance-Aspekte von Beginn an erf√ľllen
