Going from hot and cold testing of engines to a robust end-of-line testing system for electrified vehicles

Article | February 21, 2020

The current trend of electrification in the automotive industry challenges not only the development teams, but also the production lines and quality testing. While the ICE (internal combustion engine) production rely on the well-established hot and cold testing of engines applying vibration and sound measurements; assembly of electrified vehicles requires new advanced end-of-line (EoL) testing methods and standards.

How To Use Chaos Engineering for Observability

Article | February 21, 2020

There’s an old truth in software development that your backup is only as good as your last restore. Something similar can be said for your observability platform: You don’t really know how good it is until your system hits a snag, and you can correlate spikes on your dashboards with real system activity. New Relic Solution Architects work with customers to build out best practices for using our platform.

Utility Engineering works behind the scenes to keep highway projects on schedule

Article | February 21, 2020

While the most visible aspect of engineering at ADOT is building, maintaining and operating state highways, there’s a lot of prep work that goes into projects. One area of ADOT that does a lot of preparation work to help keep important highway projects moving on schedule is the Utility and Railroad Engineering section. The Utility and Railroad Engineering’s mission is supporting ADOT’s construction program by making sure utilities don't conflict with the design of a project before it goes to construction.

3 IMPORTANT STEPS TO REVERSE ENGINEERING A PART

Article | February 21, 2020

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.
