Excellent post Aaron--Very informative.  One issue I feel might be relevant to micro-molding is how you "QC" a part, specifically, what techniques are used to measure compliance with critical-to-quality dimensions.  This has to be a bear and require special techniques. 

I was happy you mentioned "additive" manufacturing as a method of initial prototyping.  I follow that technology closely. It's very useful as a tool when doing form, fit and function.

I also feel most of the micro-molded products are "gang-molded" so production occurs with multiple products being produced from one shot.

Again, excellent post.

Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
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.
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.

Researchers in Australia think new types of plastic materials instead of silicon may be the key to building more efficient solar cells.
