What is Zero Wait-State? Wait-state: a time-out period during which a CPU or bus lies idle. Wait states are sometimes required because different components function at different clock speeds. Zero Wait-state: an environment in which a CPU can process information at its optimal speed without having to wait for other components to catch up.
What is Zero Wait-State in Product Development? Wait-state: Unnecessary delays in the product development cycle. Zero Wait-state: An environment that is fully optimized to eliminate unnecessary delays in the product development cycle.
Wait-States in Product Development Executing a change when necessary files live in multiple systems… Creating new parts from scratch when you know they already exist (but are WAY too hard to find)… Everyone asking engineering to do something for them (e.g. create a photo rendering or a “simple” view of a design for making a technical illustration)… Tracking the impact of one change across a full product platform… Figuring out who has the latest version of “xyz”… Managing the work of many partners simultaneously and making sure they are working on the right data… These are just a few examples, do you have any others?
