In this on-demand webinar, Lockitron CEO Paul Gerhardt shares his lessons in bringing three versions of the keyless-entry smart lock to mass production and the strategies used to minimize delays and failures.

During the webinar Paul offers insights on:

  • Design for Simplicity: Learn how to balance consumer demand with factory capability and avoid over-complicating your product with too many features and requirements.
  • Design for Domain Authority: Learn how to separate your product into subsystems that can be debugged by domain experts in isolation, using tools to determine part breaks, subsystem boundaries, material selection, and vendor sourcing.
  • Design for Communication: Learn how to mitigate risk in production by opening up multiple communication channels through the use of language, photos, samples, and test procedures.
