Engineering Feasibility: A Useful Question

Posted on Sep 20, 2021

Typically, at some stage in the process of product engineering the design team approach the engineering team and ask for some input on the feasibility of their ideas. I find this question to be a useful prompt for those conversations.

What is the solution we could put together in a day? A month? A year? What are the tradeoffs between them?

I find it useful as, fundamentally, a lot of engineering decisions come down to tradeoffs and this puts that question right at the forefront.
