This blog on "Design Software" is not going to be about a review of what exists, but rather in what I feel is missing in the current offerings from so...
StartUP Product's insight:

- The best chance for a product to be developed to strike the balance between obtaining the highest performance, lowest cost, and any other requirement exist at the earliest stages of development. 
The ability to consider multiple concepts and measure/simulate performance against requirements early, i.e. before any detail design activities begin, maximizes the opportunity for a product to be successful.
In other words: the best concept yields the best product.

So if the best potential for success is in the concept development phase, where are the conceptual engineering software tools?

Design News - Electronic News & Comment - To Invent Like Edison, Learn to Collaborate

Design News - Electronic News & Comment - To Invent Like Edison, Learn to Collaborate | Product Innovation | Scoop.it
A new book by Thomas Edison's great-grandniece takes on the notion that he was a lone-wolf inventor and replaces it with an image of a man who ascribed great value to the ideas of colleagues.
StartUP Product's insight:

Edison "viewed collaboration as the beating heart of his laboratories, a sustaining resource that fueled the knowledge assets of his sprawling innovation empire."


Encourage diverse viewpoints

  • In a real collaboration, there should be a focus on learning from others and leveraging their strengths


  • it's very important that they learn someone else's language and see the problem from their perspective (cross-functional)


Consider at least three options

  • consider multiple options


Always consider the customer

Startup building blocks: team and product

Startup building blocks: team and product | Product Innovation | Scoop.it
A startup idea is easy to explain - the product is much harder.
StartUP Product's insight:

People may share the same ideas and strategies, but often would not translate them into the same product.


In comparison to the idea, which can usually be explained in a sentence, a product is much harder to explain, especially if the market isn't quite ready for it.


A product has various components such as design, functionality and usability. There is considerable complexity in bringing those parts together to build a product that matches the expectations behind the idea.


While it may be possible to build a team and raise funds based on a big idea, finding great customers and being able to retain them over the longer term without having an exceptional product is impossible.


In Grimlock's words, 'it's the product, stupid'.
