Value engineering has been impacting and improving the cost-effectiveness of IoT and embedded systems in specific industries:
Healthcare: Value engineering has been used to develop cost-effective and reliable medical devices, such as patient monitoring systems, insulin pumps, and implantable devices. By optimizing the design of these devices, reducing the number of components, and simplifying the manufacturing process, manufacturers have been able to reduce the cost of these devices without compromising their performance or reliability.
Agriculture: IoT and embedded systems have been used in the agriculture industry to help farmers monitor soil moisture, temperature, and other environmental factors that affect crop growth. Through value engineering, these systems have been optimized to reduce power consumption, extend battery life, and improve the accuracy of the data collected. This has led to increased crop yields and reduced costs for farmers.
Transportation: Value engineering has been used to optimize the design of embedded systems used in transportation, such as vehicle tracking systems, traffic control systems, and automated toll systems. By reducing the complexity of these systems, simplifying their user interface, and improving their connectivity features, manufacturers have been able to reduce the cost of these systems while improving their performance and reliability.
Energy: IoT and embedded systems have been used in the energy industry to improve the efficiency of power generation and distribution systems. Through value engineering, these systems have been optimized to reduce energy consumption, improve system reliability, and reduce maintenance costs. For example, smart grid systems have been developed that use sensors and analytics to optimize energy usage, reduce outages, and improve energy efficiency.
In summary, value engineering has been used to optimize the design and performance of IoT and embedded systems in various industries, resulting in more cost-effective and reliable devices that have improved productivity, efficiency, and profitability.
