Can Data Help Us Build Better Hardware Products ?

  1. 1. Can Data Help Us Build Better Hardware Products? CTO, Supplyframe abradic@supplyframe.com Aleksandar Bradic
  2. 2. Moving from prototype to production... How can we tell if we have crafted a perfect BOM ? Can we do better on price ? Did we make the best possible choices ? How do we assess our risks ? How do we learn all the things we don’t know just in time for that deadline ? While having a startup-size team...
