Alan’s Engineering Philosophy:
When working with clients, it’s important to favor practicality and business-sense. Besides just looking at the requirements, engineers should ask why those are the requirements. What does the market demand for price, schedule, and quality? We should strive to minimize complexity, maximize value to the end-customer, and simplify the design while improving manufacturability, testability, reliability, repairability and all the other characteristics that differentiate a good product from a great solution.
