The technical debt in software: a present issue with future implications

The overriding aim when launching the software design stage is the provision of solutions to the issues of concern to the product’s users. Yet the way in which the software is developed will have an impact upon its ability to adapt to fresh requirements and, accordingly, the generation of future versions. The key to the creation of sustainable software over the long term calls on developers to understand how the system is coded and be capable of expanding, modifying or updating it. This gives rise to two concepts: the legacy code and the technical debt.

Does digital manufacturing need standards?

What does “standardize” mean? Does the sheet-metal industry need standards in its digitization process, or are these simply a series of norms for obtaining a seal of quality? Do we actually gain any real benefits from standardization? Can it really help to transform a sector? These are just some of the questions we might ask when analyzing the need for standardizing the digital factory in the metal-forming sector.

Recalling software’s women pioneers

Many of humanity’s major advances in research and technology have come during times of warfare. Such is the case of discoveries in medicine and reconstructive surgery, aeronautics' growth, and radar systems and information technology (IT), prompted by the Second World War. Wars are historical events in which women’s role in the public arena acquired greater weight, as they fill the positions in the labor force that men, called up to fight, have left vacant. This precisely happened during the early years of IT development when women became the pioneers of computer science.

How containerization can contribute to sheet metal digitization

The use of a complete run-time environment, known as a container in digitisation processes, is becoming increasingly more commonplace in industrial sectors, being especially useful for implementing IoT and process automation systems. This is because of its portability and scalability features and its deployment and orchestration options.
