Six Reasons Why Your Product Design Practices Won’t Survive in 2020
Whether product designers want to admit it or not, tectonic shifts in consumption patterns, manufacturing, and design technology are upon us. In this presentation, John Hayes of Engineering.com, an expert in design technology with over 20 years of experience working in and covering the field, will break down the 6 reasons why traditional product design practices won’t survive in 2020.
One change that will affect product teams across every industry from CPG to transportation to industrial products is the demand for products that can be purchased as services, leaving the manufacturer with responsibility for the performance of their products in the field. Another is that design teams will be under even greater pressure to shorten their design and production cycles to hit shrinking windows for product launches.
Traditional design processes and technology are a poor match for this new environment. However, new technologies promise to allow design teams to adapt and even thrive. Are they the real deal, or are they over-hyped?
