Testing relates to both the development process and standards before going to the market. The current industry standards can be too laboratory focused ignoring environmental data and only define a binary outcome, when each niche within the industry might look for differentiation.

Hosted by Professor Geraint Florida-James MTBCOS and Ed Shoote, DMBinS
