I would like to field questions that relate to the process of designing and developing new manufactured products. I have strong experience in product design, product development, product engineering, manufacturing, project management of product development projects, and feasibility analysis of concepts.
I have worked for fortune 500 business in new product development (NPD) roles, and also am co-founder of a business that is focused on helping businesses develop new products. This means I understand the business context of product development as well as the technical resources required to get a concept through design, prototyping, design for manufacture, and cost optimization.
