@MWagner

A successful product begins with the team working out a through set of requirements and specifications (as you mentioned on the "arm").  This includes taking into acount a full understanding of the environment where its used, what can go wrong and how will the product handle that.  It's sounds so simple, but assumptions and the rush to deadlines and cost pressures frequently bring other designs up short.

You are so right.

Aubrey, you have had quite the resume! After working in a few industries, I keep coming back to the observation - commercial or military/aerospace: A successful product begins with the team working out a through set of requirements and specifications (as you mentioned on the "arm").  This includes taking into acount a full understanding of the environment where its used, what can go wrong and how will the product handle that.  It's sounds so simple, but assumptions and the rush to deadlines and cost pressures frequently bring other designs up short.
