Six best practices for optical product design teams - eGuide for engineering management


In their groundbreaking study Six Myths of Product Development, Stefan Thomke and Donald Reinersten (Harvard Business Review, May 2012) exposed common fallacies of product development and presented 12 best practices for overcoming them. This eGuide, authored by Zemax CEO Mark Nicholson, highlights how Zemax Virtual Prototyping applies six of these best practices – and what it means for the optical products you design. Learn the value of:

  • Remaining open to an evolving development plan
  • Using iterative – not linear – design processes
  • Experimenting with smaller batches for faster feedback
  • Quantifying the cost of delays and factoring it into your decisions
  • Making information flows visible
