Premier Farnell is thinking big with a great portal of element14 for the engineers, providing innovative customer resource and breaking new ground for the industry. The site has everything an engineer needs to get their job done.

"The video can even be about what the next big innovation needs to be in the electronics industry." I think that engineers might be too shy to talk on this topic unless someone is serious. This maybe a more suitable platform for marketing and sales folks to win some prizes (some pun intended)!

Thanks Barbara for sharing element14 community. Yes, they are very active and very effective. One of the good thing they got is Eagle PCB layout software at very low price. This is very useful for begineer to proffessional. They also have very good technical panel and have very interesting discussions. They alos provide very low cost Test and Measurement equipment like OScilloscope and others.

This is a great idea and a perfect cure to overcoming one of the biggest barriers to learning or understanding - lack of mass. If purchasing managers don't have good view over what goes on beyond their area of influence, it can get in the way of product sourcing. Having the videos available - and a gamesmanship around it - can only help.

Great Post Barbara! The one obstacle to the partnership of design engineers and purchasing or reason for the gap is the difference in the thinking process of the two groups. Creative minds tend to abtract in their thinking and are willing to take risks. The procurement group tend to be concrete and stiff about the cost and benefit analysis. But you are right, the two need to find collaborative common ground to make innovations profitable.

That sounds like a very interesting project and it should help shed some light on some of the daily activities. My company has done some videos like this and posted them on you tube to aid in recruiting. These videos were aimed at giving a view into the lives of different scientists, managers, and engineers.

I'm sure they will have some very good submissions, and I'm sure it won't be easy picking a winner.

"As we’ve seen time and again, electronics innovation can happen in someone’s garage, a lab, at the office, or in a classroom" What a beautiful phrase ..... Innovation is not just a word of course. Is the word that leads us in the today world and is the word that makes all the people to challenge their creativity. And from this step, I want to give many congratulations for this excellent idea.
