Tracy P. Jong, Esq. and Cheng–Ning Jong, PE
A multidisciplinary product team often involves both software engineers and traditional engineers. How do they effectively communicate and work together to design and implement reliable products free of system errors? How do they design a system that is easily modified or upgraded without going back to the drawing board? In this course, you will be introduced to basic concepts that will enhance your understanding of the interrelationship between hardware and software, enabling you to write better requirements and be an active participant in a product design and implementation process. Co-author, Cheng-Ning Jong, P.E. received formal training in Engineering with Mechanical Specialty and Engineering Systems and worked extensively in embedded systems and machine control software disciplines in Caterpillar Inc., Xerox Corporation and Rotork Controls, Inc. During his tenure at these firms, he witnessed first-hand various challenges faced by both software and hardware teams in communicating and verifying requirements as there lacks cross-training opportunities between these two distinctive fields of study.
This course includes a multiple choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
