White Paper: Six best practices for optical product design teams
In their groundbreaking study Six Myths of Product Development, * Stefan Thomke and Donald Reinertsen (Harvard Business Review, May 2012) exposed common fallacies of product development and presented 12 best practices for overcoming them. This paper highlights how Zemax Virtual Prototyping applies six of these best practices—and what it means for the optical products you design. In this white paper you will learn the six best practices for product design teams:
  • Remain open to an evolving development plan
  • Use iterative—not linear-design processes
  • Experiment with smaller batches for faster feedback
  • Quantify the cost of delays and factor it into your decisions
  • Experiment early, rapidly, and frequently
  • Make information flows visible
