Event description
Calling all entrepreneurs who have a desire to or interest in designing, building and mass manufacturing a hardware product

About this Event

Product development is a constant trade-off between quality cost and time. In the early stages, it's about failing fast so the focus is on low-quality production at high speed. At the later stages, reputation and revenue risk require a focus on high quality at the cost of speed. Balancing quality, cost and speed is a difficult task.

By the end of the masterclass you will have a better understanding of:

  • How to balance of quality, cost and speed shifts at different stages of the product development cycle
  • How to reduce risk and cost by focusing on the right things at the right time
  • How to maximise outcomes from your product development effort
  • How to apply lean startup principles to hardware product development
  • How to improve product quality and reduce manufacturing time

There'll also be opportunities to network with other hardware innovators over refreshments.

Speakers:

Vela Georgiev - HardworX

Matthew Redding - LIFX

  • Hardware innovators at any stage in their journey, but especially those who are entering into the “Design It”, “Produce It” phase
