Other business or activities at the meeting:
We had the pleasure to welcome Dipl.-Ing. Ralf Baumgartner, CEO of the company Sonible for a lecture on "Product Management in Hardware Development". He explained the field of a product manager and gave deep insides on how a full development cycle of a hardware product might look like from the first idea until it is released to the marked and even further. Together we built a fictional product and went through all stages beginning with marked studies, defining all needed hardware parts, financing, testing, and finally marketing. All the way Ralf gave viable tips on what to avoid and on which topics to pay the most attention. All participants were very satisfied to get to know this part of the industry, since there might be some of our students who will end up in similar fields.
Sonible is a Graz-based company which develops Audio Hard- and Software solutions in the fields of professional- and HiFi-audio. Dipl.Ing. Ralf Baumgartner is a graduate of the study Elektrotechnik-Toningenieur in Graz.
