Where We Find Failure
When we talk about finding failure, let’s not overlook one of the most valuable spaces where we discover all the ways something can fail—in the test lab.
Our customers find value in failure, just like we do. Regardless of the size of the company, the people who we partner with aren’t afraid to fail fast and often. But don’t take our word for it, listen to what failure means to a few of our partners in test and measurement. For these engineers, failure is not an obstacle when it comes to realizing their ambitions.
“Failure is always an option. To say that it’s not an option would be delusional.”
-Jeff Olsen, president of Hiller Measurements
“Sometimes we develop a product, bring it to a customer, and then learn that it needs to be changed. So, it’s not necessarily a product failure, but a product-definition failure.”
-Tom Magruder, general manager of NOFFZ US Branch
“With a surprise failure though, you have an opportunity to learn something new.”
-Eric Newman, CEO of Viviota
“While it’s great to be able to test something and have it pass, what you ultimately want to look for are the failures and insights you’re able to gain.”
-Clint Biggs, president of Solubit, Inc.
