New tools constantly pop up on the market, yet some are better than others at tackling business processes. As the market and demand speed up, sometimes so do product and design. Consider this simple example of how a car gets designed and built.
In the old days of product design, roles were generally linear and production costs were much higher as a result. These days, thanks to simulation tools and technology, teams can not only build virtual prototypes and run virtual tests, but teams can collaborate from the start and cut down on costs.
