Testing, Standards & Guidelines 2 Replies
If you can't measure it, you can't manage it! Standards in the smart textiles industry are forming. IPC, ASTM and AATCC are working hard to bring them to industry. In the meantime, companies have to come up with solutions to assess performance of partners' technologies (or their own).
How are you currently handling this with potential partners? How are you measuring progress within your own R&D efforts? How big of a deal is it to objectively measure the performance of these textiles? How far away are we from seeing published 3rd party standards?
