This announcement of design software that proposes alternative ways of designing modules looks pretty revolutionary to me. 40 years ago I was going to the IBM European computer centre near Brussels where my boss would hire computer time to do finite element analysis on piping structure design for refineries and power plants. It seemed totally revolutionary compared to slide rules and log tables and even the first HP calculators.
This looks like a big step.
I wonder if our friends at the PBI in Turku/Abo whose expertise lies in modular organisational design and modular industrial ecosystem design are going to come up with something similar? Maybe not « if » but « when? »!
