INDUSTRIAL research, RAPID prototyping, NEW product development, COMPUTER software industry, INNOVATION management, and KNOWLEDGE management
Living labs are innovation infrastructures within which software companies and research organizations collaborate with lead users and early adopters in creating participative strategies to define, design, develop, and validate new products and services that maximize the socioeconomic conditions of the partnership. For this kind of innovation cluster to succeed, it must implement effective practices to manage the collaboration. However, there is currently no process reference model for efficient practices to manage a living lab. A case study involving six living labs was carried out to create and validate a process reference model for living labs. INSET: Living Labs in the Study. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]

The article reports on the introduction of the 2D and 3D design and engineering software products for manufacturers for 2010 by Autodesk Inc. of San Rafael, California. The software releases are designed to help manufacturers develop better products, that range from mobile phones to bulldozers, in a short period of time. The product lineup which constitutes the firm's solution for Digital Prototyping includes AutoCAD Mechanical, AutoCAD Electrical, Autodesk Showcase, and Autodesk 3ds Max Design. Furthermore, the releases are indicated to provide greater range of design, visualization, and simulation capabilities.
The article informs that Best Software Inc. has a new name and a slew of products and programs for the channel. After a futile attempt to pull together under the Best Software umbrella various products acquired during a multiyear buying spree, Best gave up and renamed the company Sage Software. The decision to change the company's name starting this month was announced in March. Partners have until March 2006 to come into compliance with the new branding schemes. Ron Verni, president and CEO of Irvine, California-based Sage Software, said that while the company's efforts to create a single brand around a range of business applications continues to be "a journey," the North American unit of Sage experienced a 30 percent increase in revenue and a commensurate increase in net income through acquisitions and organic growth.
