The product release date is coming up quickly—is this speeding train actually accelerating, or does it just seem as if it is? Why, again, are we trading off fixing those last critical bugs in order to meet the date? Our Product Management team wants to consider delivering incremental software value under a new subscription licensing model—how can we get there from here? Why is our manufacturing line demanding additional end of line tests for the new transducer assembly?
Are these common patterns and challenges on your product development team? This workshop will explore some of the latest thinking about building quality into the development process from the beginning—in support of newer and accelerated trends and product release models in the audio industry.
The panel for this 90-minute workshop will provide a variety of product perspectives—software, hardware, integrated software and hardware, technology licensing, cloud platforms. The panel consists of Quality and Product professionals and technologists, experts in their fields, who will share their best practices around building quality products in this evolving environment. This will be an interactive session where we encourage discussion and interchange of ideas.
