When designing systems with sensors and electronics, engineers have a diabolical set of requirements with respect to functionality, cost, power, connectivity, and physical dimensions—to name just a few! It’s enough to make anyone’s head explode. In this panel discussion, engineers with practical experience will share their insights and advice on how to manage the myriad decisions and trade-offs in systems design, best practices for taking their designs from concept to commercialization faster and more effectively and managing the insanity of what at times can seem like a completely  unconstrained design space.
  • What role do requirements play in system design and is there some secret to writing them in such a way to help manage the whole complexity of systems design?
  • How can an engineer get a handle on all of the options and winnow them down to a manageable few?
  • What are some strategies for conducting a trade-off analysis among all the different choices to come up with the optimal design?
