- Most challenging projects are the ones where the customer/client doesn't listen.
- Current and future states of wearable industry and future
- Remote monitoring of patients is here to stay (thanks to COVID) and wearables are going to play a big role.
- Advances in low power communication direct to the internet
- Phases of product development
- Risk management in prototype development
- How to respond to an investor when she/he asks an entrepreneur about the price of a product
- Not having complete requirements is a huge problem in designing a product
- Why both large companies like Philips, Siemens, etc., as well as startups are using a design firm like Voler
- Project management requirements while working with a contract design firm
- Communication equally important to the engineering knowledge
- How to keep costs under control and stay on budget
- Changes will happen, but a lot of changes/ Incremental periodic changes are detrimental after starting a project. Good to build-in changes in phases
- Why working with partners is better than working with a vendor during the design/product development phase. Try to avoid outsourcing to overseas teams
- Wearables are more about the data than the hardware
- Requirements, requirements, requirements
