Approaching the topic of workplace safety around heavy equipment might feel tiring to you if you’ve spent any number of years working in the construction field or any related line of work where equipment is present. Safety reminders are many and some stories of life-altering injury seem like they could have been prevented with common sense, but many more fall outside of what any reasonable human being might be prepared to expect.

New Solution Processing Methods for Organic Electronic Devices

Article | April 7, 2020

The field of organic electronics has seen a lot of interest in recent years. On the whole, the performance and efficiency of organic electronic devices are not typically as high as inorganic-based electronics. However, their unique properties – especially their flexibility, conformability and thinness compared the more rigid inorganic materials – have seen them being used for specific applications and in areas where the properties of conventional inorganic-based electronics are not suitable.

Cybersecurity and SMEs: what construction companies can learn from military intelligence

Article | March 4, 2020

Cyber criminals don’t just target individuals and big corporations, so how do you close the chinks in your digital armour? Last year, I attended an event for SMEs hosted by HSBC and like all good seminars I left with plenty of food for thought – but the talk that stuck with me was Barry Searle’s session on cyber-crime. As a security specialist and former intelligence specialist with the RAF, Barry’s insights on cyber-crime prevention are well worth taking into account.

Ensuring the security of engineering software

Article | February 28, 2020

Commercial organizations and government agencies are common targets of cyber-attacks due to the valuable information they possess. In one dramatic example, information related to the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, P-8 Poseidon patrol plane, C-130 Hercules cargo plane, Joint Direct Attack Munition bomb, and future Australian Navy ships was ex filtrated from an Australian defense firm in November of 2016. The increased frequency and severe consequences of cyber-security breaches have alarmed large corporations around the world. As a result, companies are taking greater measures to secure their information throughout their supply chains.

3 IMPORTANT STEPS TO REVERSE ENGINEERING A PART

Article | April 8, 2021

Over the past 120 years, there has been a production of millions of machine parts and products worldwide. However, few of these products are still relevant over the years because of the technological advancement, but lots of old parts used in machines are still in use. When a part breaks down or malfunctions, it is usually replaced using a process known as reverse engineering. There are many things that can be learned from a machine or software, just from reverse engineering. This is because the concept behind the reverse engineering process is to break something down to help understand it, and the engineer can then build a copy or try to improve it. Furthermore, there is a need for a reverse engineering design process as the technology advances to ensure the existing manufacturing systems’ continuity. Reverse engineering is an important process for everybody as we will be forced to replace entire machines without it. In this article, we will break down everything you need to know about reverse engineering, from reverse engineering to reverse engineering processes.
