How to develop connected Products for Manufacture
In his keynote from the Internet of Things Conference, Josh Valman will run through the process of developing connected products, from concept to production and logistics, and how, as an important part of this process, steps and components can be removed from a product rather than added. It will highlight key disasters he has had (many!) so you don’t have to make them again.
At 10-years-old, Josh began his engineering career because of his fascination with robotics. By age 15, he was consulting some of the world’s largest manufacturing companies on supply chain and engineering. Now, age 20, Josh is the Managing Director at RPD International. RPD designs and manufactures connected products for airlines, hotels, brands and startups with over 100 factories and presence in 46 countries. As connected products become more intertwined with human life and behaviour, Josh is pioneering new processes for prototyping and developing these products.
