    Just more engineers, marketing trying to justify their salaries.  KIS!

      I don't buy a lot of things simply because they take too long to learn to operate because there is so much useless garbage in them.

       A really good designer/engineer makes things more simple, not more complicated.

     On my EV I won't have much of anything which I think will be a great selling point not to mention cuts much expense.  I'll leave a nice space so if one wants to add aftermarket things they can.  And my EV drive won't be the expensive  mess most EV's use but Forlift EV drives instead for lower costs, more reliability.

  Facts are most electronics are obsolate in 5 yrs so building them in isn't bright.

     It'll also be made for the owner to fix by designing it so anything can be repaired or replaced in under 30 minutes, most in under 10.

    Now we have cheap inputs of materials but those costs are going up with a bullet so better made, more simple products that last decades and can be upgraded will be the smart choices.

Software silos don't help

All you have to do is read through some of the Made by Monkeys posts to see that Kristin is definitely on to something. Today, there is so much focus on hitting a checklist of new and improved and so-called "cool" features that engineering teams often lose sight of the basics and the core mission of the product. It doesn't help that requirements are often handled by one system and the actual design by another system (CAD), and the two tend to exist in silos without much interfaction and data sharing between the two.
