8 benefits of adopting software processes for hardware

Because software and hardware are so closely connected, they are starting to cross-pollinate across teams. Hardware engineers are cherry picking what can improve their current processes. Although these principles cannot be simply copied and pasted from SW to HW development, much can be borrowed and adapted. We broke down how to do so in 8 ways.
