Woo-hoo! The first three chapters of my book, From Prototype to Product: A Practical Guide for Getting to Market, have been released by O’Reilly as an early release edition.
Focusing on products that contain software and electronics, Prototype to Product answers the question “What will it take to turn this cool idea into a shipping product?”. It’s roll-up-our-sleeves approach to the processes, strategies and tactics that lead to successful product development and manufacturing efforts. Topics include project planning, requirements generation, quality and regulatory issues, risk management, reliability, project management, cross-discipline systems integration, prototyping, testing, and manufacturing.
The book is mostly content-complete, the most significant content to be added will be coverage of the OpenPed product development project which is well under way. Chapters will be added to the online early release over the next few months as they’re polished up, thereupon the print version will start to roll out.
I’m very excited to have reached this milestone!
