Engineers work in offices in one part of the city. Designers work in different offices. People who make parts and products work in factories in other cities or other countries. Not surprisingly the tools one discipline makes don’t match the requirements or fit the tooling for the parts another discipline makes.
Teams should include members of multiple disciplines, located together in the same room and near the manufacturing facility or testing lab. Ideally in the middle of the desert with nothing but a bar for miles around so your team will be forced to talk to each other!
Talking, seeing, listening. These are good medicine for better and more agile product development.
