Tekoship agreed, sometimes we even dont know who is the right person to ask about the product and marketors must have proper knowledge about the product and they should know what to ask , how to ask and when to ask .

For medical devices the right person to talk to might not be the doctor.  Very often the surgeon is not the person controlling the product.  The doctor may have a strong opinion about menu navigation or some other aspect of the product, but then you find out that the doctor may never even see the product.

Giving the customers what they ask for is also an interesting idea and according to this you are satisfying the customer but giving an alternative , modified version of their requirement or giving something more than what they asked for or ecpected is not only just satisfying the customer but it comes in delighting the customers and in this era majority of the marketors are working on delighting the customers in order to create them loyal to their brand or organisation.

Thanks Tom for such an informative topic no doubt without proper probing we cant get to know what actually customers want basically customer are very sensitive and emotional at one moment they want something and the very next moment they need something else . So understanding the need of the customer properly and asking appropriate questions can solve this problem to a great extent .

Being your own customer helps too. Use the product you design. Or even want the product you are designing.

A decade from now, firmware development may be nothing more than software integration, grabbing vendor and third-party components, and meshing their APIs together to form a final system.
Design, simulation, manufacturability, and prototyping: All of these phases are being pushed forward and progressively by underlying technologies.
From design feasibility, to development, to production, having the right information to make good decisions can ultimately keep a product from failing validation. The key is highly focused information that doesn’t come from conventional, statistics-based tests but from accelerated stress testing.
There’s a good chance that a few of the things mentioned here won't fully come to fruition in 2015 but rather much later down the line. However, as Malcolm X once said, "The future belongs to those who prepare for it today."
Pressure vessels are part of common equipment utilized in plants to store liquids and gases under high pressure. It is certain that pressurized fluids will develop stresses in the vessel, which when exceeds failure limits, will lead to hazardous incidents and fatalities.
