Discussing The Lean Spec: Translating Hardware Engineering Language Into Product Management Process

0 page


Malcolm Knapp of The Engineer Accelerator talks with Cindy F. Solomon of SUPA Product Academy about the "lean spec", a product specfication requirements process that Malcolm has developed and implemented over many years of building hardware products.

This is the first in a series of conversations highlighting the issues involved in talking about this process, developing it as a product management tool, and solving the complexity of visualizing the product definition before development begins.

About Malcolm Knapp

I help small companies and individual people with defining the product they are trying to make and implementation of the electronics component of that product. In all, I have over ten years of project experience ever since I designed and built a low cost rechargeable lantern from The Millennium Villages project in 2004.

My education includes a combined BA in Science, Engineering, and Society from Pitzer College, a BS in Electrical Engineer from Columbia University and a MS in Electrical Engineering from Columbia. I chose this type of degree because politics, economics, and culture, effect what is built just as much as what is technically possible and I wanted to understand how.
