For 14th Distinguished Lecture in #IISc, the title of my talk was ‘Dimensions of #Product #Designeering’. It was organized by Centre for Product Design and Manufacturing (#CPDM).
The value of Product #Design from aesthetics-and-ergonomics is well recognized. So is the value of Product #Engineering from features-and-functionalities perspective.
As the functionality set grows for a compact physical product and product design cycle reduces, the conflict starts to grow between design-and-engineering space. Introduced my concepts with examples: how trade-off is achieved in practice with additional dimensions of new interfaces, innovativeness and customer-centricity.
