Expanded development as well as rapid growth in wearable consumer electronics and production is the reason behind its growth.

This service is filling the gap of lower productivity, lack of modern innovation and similar issues. It has all the scope to expand further and further in this competitive scenario. Some of the recent trends are luring stakeholders from different domains to look at it more seriously. Here are those trends which is spearheading the Embedded Software Development.

Use of AI

In the recent decade, a lot of changes happened in the tech space. One such is the advent of speech recognition in search engines. A decade before, speech recognition had an accuracy of only 70 percent. But over a period, it has improved multifold and online search engine voice recognition is much more sophisticated and simple.

Embedded Software Development

Almost all are drifting towards voice search than typing keywords. Speech recognition is not the only service which grew rapidly. We have also seen, biometrics, AI powered hardware and robotic automation as well as virtual assistants. So much investments are done on AI powered innovations be it product or service. Hence we will soon come across a lot of AI powered technologies be it product or service.

Wearable Smart Devices

Like AI powered, we also come across a lot of wearable smart devices. Be it smart watch or a smart clock, we have seen a lot of them making rounds in the recent past. Amazon’s Alexa especially is something to reckon with. Now with IoT, an integration of all these devices with home controls is also soon on the cards. Hence we can say, you can connect all your devices to your home appliances to operate them. For example, even if you forget to turn off your geyser switch, you’ll be reminded.

Ecommerce

In the recent decade, Ecommerce has also grown multifold like other industries. Now we have an ecommerce portal for every single equipment and product that we see. Both B2B and B2C ecommerce portals exist as on date and there are thousands of them serving millions. In the coming days, we can expect to see a lot of B2B healthcare ecommerce portals emerging. Also, ecommerce portals in the healthcare space were so far didn’t reach several people despite its high usage. But now the awareness is spreading beyond limits and we can soon see a lot of people buying medicines online.

Smart Home Services

Consumer demands are changing from generation to generation. While baby boomers had a simple requirement with limited features, millennials are expecting something with unlimited features. This growing consumer demands is driving the smart home exodus. Already we see real estate projects coming with smart service enablement.

Embedded Software Development has a big role to play here as well. Right from integrating devices to managing home automations, it has a larger role to play. Therefore in the near future a lot of development is expected in this space.

Embedded Software Development is an emerging field and it finds a lot of scope in smart home services alone. Technosoft Engineering offers this service to a range of smart home service providers. Its state-of-the-art facility and cutting edge innovation drives results with positive synergies.

Applications of Computational Fluid Dynamics

April 2, 2019

From the external view, we all see industrial equipment as just a sheer assembly of all components. But what goes into manufacturing one is enormous. Assembling components alone are not involved in manufacturing of industrial equipment. Validation is an important part of the process and under validation comes the testing of Computational Fluid Dynamics. Perfect and stunning outer look alone won’t say equipment is fit to be launched in the market. Rather how it reacts to different conditions and is it resistant to untoward incidents. So many tests like finite element method, spectral element method, coherent vortex simulation, direct numerical simulation to name a few are done to ensure each equipment manufactured is in the best of all conditions to make the end user’s ride comfortable. Here are some of the applications of Computational Fluid Dynamics.

CFD Services

Thermal Management

For any product controlling temperature is quite critical. If you’re operating a chemical reactor less than the required temperature the yield turns out to be less. At the same time, too high temperature will make it toxic for the workforce. Hence thermal management test is a must for any industry application. CFD involves a combination of unique simulations and analysis that generates unique results. Several cases are solved based on assumptions and general rules, but for critical cases like thermal management CFD turns out to be more viable.

Cavitation

Pumps, valves, compressors and fuel injectors are often prone to formation of vapour bubbles. It is quite a common challenge and in many cases can pull down the overall performance of the equipment. Excessive noise and vibration is one among the biggest challenges posed by cavitation. Hence to fix this issue, wide of range of CFD analysis and simulations can be utilized. Cavitation is a problem which can be avoided if the design is right. Hence engineers can utilize an array of CFD analysis methods to see the design doesn’t produce a model which is prone to cavitation in any of the relevant components.

Turbomachinery

Improving efficiency of turbochargers and turbopumps is a big challenge for any manufacturer. Experts say improving this performance can actually save billions of money spent on air transport and gas powered electrical industry. Also, performance improvements with regard to safety, operating range, reliability, operating costs and time to market are other set of challenges involved. Accurate simulation is the optimal solution to overcome this issue and CFD applications are the right ones to do so. With CFD, not only your efficiency and reliability increases, but also you can lower your emissions.

Structure Interactions

An important challenge involved in fluid flow management is structural interactions. Interaction of fluid with structures will actually cause damage to some parts and cause deformations. This in turn might change the course of fluid flow. To overcome this, you need to fix this issue in the design stage itself. To predict possible fluid and structural interactions, Computational Fluid Dynamics comes as a problem solver with its optimal simulations and analysis. Hence with CFD, you can better understand the behavior of your product and avoid challenges.

Digital Twin Technologies

If you understand cloning, then grasping digital twin will not at all be difficult for you. For example, you have one machine which does a particular process and replicating the same process with one machine will not be possible. In that case, you can create virtual equipment like the original one and assign the same to perform operations in tandem. This way, your production increases and so does your efficiency. Several reports were surfacing saying how digital twin is disrupting Product Lifecycle Management (PLM). Moreover, this has been widely used in healthcare and automotive industry as well quite widely.

Converging IT and OT

Integration is the new word in the tech world. For years, IT and OT has been two different domains. But there is a need to bridge both together. Under OT, one does monitoring and controlling equipment. On the other hand, under IT a lot of support management activities take place. But efficiency and productivity is said to increase only when both the operations are interconnected. A lot of research has been going on to converge both of these. By the end of 2019, we can possibly get to see manufacturing facilities with the convergence of both these operations.

Cobot Usage

Cobot or Collaborative Robots as they’re called is now emerging. In 2018, its worth stood at US$710 million and same is said to surge to a whopping market worth of US$12.3 billion. These collaborative robots are said to increase production lines, increase productivity and improve employee safety. It is considered to be more affordable that even SMEs can afford having one and keep improving their efficiency from time to time. Europe, APAC and North American regions are heavily investing in this technology and soon we can see a lot of upsurge in investments and usage.

Augmented Reality

Augmented reality is not an alien term, but the advancements it offers for your manufacturing facility is something new. In the manufacturing space, augmented Reality is considered to have impacted product lifecycle management. Right from monitoring process improvements to inventory management and new product introduction, AR does everything to make your manufacturing process simple and efficient. Experts even say AR could allow one to look into the product pointing to the problem area. This is said to actually improve your efficiency and let you go ahead. Also, AR is widely used in different industries for different processes.

Trends in Electrical Engineering Services

March 8, 2019

The world around us is developing quite rapidly. Several countries are seeing a lot of development like never before. New super powers are emerging; existing super powers are dependent on developing nations for services. Rapid urbanisation and development is pushing for a complete makeover in Transportation and commercial infrastructure sectors to name a few. This makeover calls for new technologies, which is actually increasing the demand for electrical Engineering services. The emerging trends in this sector are making the world a better place to live with easy access to everything. Even Cloud and 3D imaging has a role to play here. Let us take a look at some of them.

Sustainable Design

The need to preserve environment is high allover. Off late, people realized the high performance machines are releasing toxic gases that are harmful to our environment and even to human life. In terms of electricity as well people looking to lower consumption by minimizing unwanted usage. In short, they’re looking for the perfect balance between consumption and utility. Several organizations are using IoT to get an optimal solution for this issue. Hence focus on sustainable electrical design is already taken seriously.

Sustainable Design

Project Design Time

Complex designs are the reason why implementation of certain concepts takes a lot of time. For example, let us say you have a huge construction project. The number of electrical lines required is quite high. Also, you have to complete this in a short time span. In this scenario, if you have a complex design in hand, you might not deliver what you had promised. This is pushing for simplification of complex designs and lower the project design time. Already leading players are implementing unique methodologies in designing processes which are said to increase the project design time.

3D Laser Scanning

In general, 3D Laser Scanning is quite widely utilized for studying dimensional information on any object or surface. For example, let us say you’re all set to design electrical lines for an existing building. Here you’re not raising a new one. Hence you need to understand what already exists and see how you can take advantage of the existing lines. Moreover, this helps you achieve the priority goals of obtaining a design with high accuracy.

BIM 4D/5D

Building information modelling is now going to the next level. Under BIM 4D you will set a construction sequence that adds extra information in the form of scheduling data. That extra information will also be on electrical designs. This extra detailing is going to help you build accurately on each and every level. Also, with BIM 5D you get to calculate the cost of every single thing i.e. not only the basic raw material cost. You also get the cost spent on the minute particles bought to make a good electrical design.

Cloud Sharing

Let us say you make a design and you need to deliver it to a client who stays far away from your location. You can easily save it in a cloud and share it with a client. This cloud sharing will be much secured as unlike emails, they are free from security breaches unlike other mediums.

Essential Factors in Steel Processing Equipment Manufacturing

February 11, 2019

Steel Processing Equipment manufacturing is among the niche large scale industries. It is required in every single place. We need steel to produce vehicles, vessels, equipment for building construction and what not. Hence the importance of processing it is far more than what one could think of. That’s the reason why steel processing equipment manufacturing is considered very important. It has to follow some essential practices to ensure you deliver quality products.

Schedules

Whenever you begin with a project, you set a timeline. For example, let us say you’re asked to deliver a set of large steel processing equipment to one of your biggest clients. You’re given with a deadline as well. How do you go ahead with the process? Setting targets both short term and long term, followed by continuous monitoring and proper delivery. Unlikely, the project is going to be in mess if you don’t follow schedules. If you monitor the work completion on time and ensure you atleast made 50 percent of the work by the second week, you are on track. If not you need to recheck and set new schedules.

Cost of Installation

A big manufacturing unit means big money and there is no doubt in it. If you’re manufacturing 100 vehicles, you will probably have a small unit. But to manufacture in thousands and millions, you need bigger space and money. Reportedly, some manufacturers do not count certain factors when they begin to manufacture at large. For example, you might actually need 100 tons of steel, but you will only have 50 tons in hand. This is a case wherein you cannot deliver enough quantity of what you promised. This is more evident in the case of steel processing equipment. A value engineering service provider will strategize and limit your costs and still ensure you don’t compromise on quality.

Capabilities & Capacities

This is yet another factor similar to cost of installation. You need to define what you’re capable of delivering. For example, your manufacturing capability might be 1000 a day, but you would’ve promised double or triple of the same. Unlikely this is a possibility only if you manage to maintain your machineries well. As when it runs beyond capacity, it can hold only up to a level. For further manufacturing you need to understand the threshold of the machineries you have. So based on your capabilities and capacities, your manufacturing output is defined. Hence you either need to define your capabilities or you need to increase your capacity. By doing so, you deliver exactly what your customer wants. An engineering services company that offers reengineering services will be of great assistance in this case. With reengineering, you build capabilities and capacities that are not available in your products/services currently.

Quality Management

You can do thousand things, but if you don’t deliver quality, you will lose your sheen. Generally people say when quantity increases, quality goes down. But this is not the case with successful brands. There are brands which are dominating the market for decades just for their promise to quality. Hence you need to give more persistence on quality and keep improving your capacity steadily. A value engineering service provider will be of great assistance in this case. Not only cost reduction, also quality assurance comes under value engineering. Hence you add more value to your products or services.

Steel is of utmost importance for every single industry. Construction needs it in the form of bars and others in different forms. Hence as steel processing equipment manufacturer, you need to follow these essential factors and deliver the best to your clients.
