The design process at Waterside can be expressed as three axioms; first that successful office design for innovating organizations like BA is now impossible without the kind of visionary leadership that Colin Marshall and Robert Ayling have demonstrated; second and conversely, that the mass involvement of practically all the users in the design process is essential; and third that, in managing the project, at least as much weight must be given to the design of information technology and to organizational reinvention as to the design of the physical environment,
Using CHS to bring electrical analysis earlier in the design process will allow Bell to validate that performance requirements and constraints are met early, thereby reducing the costs associated with test lab verification.
The coordination of architectural, structural and mechanical drawings, if performed at all, frequently occurs towards the end of the design process, thereby resulting in changes that can have far reaching ramifications all the way back to the previously designed building foundations.
The temperatures of the devices and interconnect are then used in simulations run as part of the design process.
EDN magazine editors, readers, and an editorial advisory board selected FireBolt from a field of hundreds of innovations in recognition of its ability to give integrated circuit (IC) designers a highly accurate 3D temperature map of the billions of objects in an IC, throughout the design process -- from silicon virtual prototyping to final sign-off -- with realistic run times.
