Topic, “Insider’s Secret to a Successful Product”
Understanding the Product Development Process, Taking a “Hardware” idea all the way to production

Amazing depth of detail to assure new product launch success, from ‘do yoiu even have a product’  through the myriad of regulations, legal and even political requirements, 

Comparisons made with Software new products as they are the darling of entrepreneurs and investors, where all it requires is a desk, programing platform and a compiler to get started (abbreviated, of course).

The gist of the talk focused on Hardware-based new products, engine for building valuable assets and manufacturing jobs creation  often requires much larger investment to develop than software
• Team of experts
• Equipment, networks to interface and communicate with
• Costly prototype runs, printed circuit boards, cables, mechanical components, enclosures… and software/firmware
• Test, prototyping, manufacturing, fabrication equipment
• Physical space

While hardware-based new product is a more demanding a process, these same secret tips used there will assure you better results no matter what type of new product you pursue.

DroneConnect1NMTC, in cooperation with SURVICE Engineering, hosted its first TECHCONN3CT workshop on drones, 27 September at Winter’s Run Golf Course.

The Panel discussion centered around the opportunities projected to add $82 billion to our economy in the next decade, learning from sector experts in the military, industry and academia.  Drones, fly into unreachable areas to gather data, and are used in monitoring, delivery, construction, filming, agriculture, inspection, and mapping, creating an $82 billion industry in the US, alone.

The workshop showed how drones will work for you, from the experts already doing this, and afterward:

  • See military drone prototype quad-copters with payload ranges of 50-300 lbs.
  • Cheer on an abbreviated drone racing team as they navigate an obstacle course
  • Take to the skies yourself, with drone flying for those interested
