The Medical Device design process is highly multidiciplinary, and I want to develop software to help teams efficiently share knowledge both immediately and for future designs. Design feedback should be as simple as adding comments to a Word document, and those comments should also be automatically applied to similar documents in the future. For example, when a materials scientist adds a comment to a proposed material selection, that knowledge will be stored and highlighted every time the material is added to any other design document.
I'm passionate about technical knowledge management ("I could have sworn someone designed something like that a few years ago.... Oh well, it will be easier to just start from scratch"), and want to focus on medical device engineers.
