Here’s a really good idea from “DESIGN&ELEKTRONIK”. The magazine will publish a case study special in September 2009, providing design engineers with a range of reference applications and success stories. Although – having worked for both a component manufacturer and distributor – I know the difficulty of getting case studies written and approved by customers, I know how valuable they are in the promotion of both products and support services. I really hope that the special issue convinces some more companies that it is worth putting in the effort with customers to create success stories.
