Fewer manual controls are easier to use. Easy-to-use products limit or eliminate the need for time consuming training, plus simpe designs involve fewer parts, limiting the need for repairs and ongoing maintenance for the organization.
Minimal parts designs require far less raw materials and fewer manufacturing process-and that means less extraction, energy use, shipping, waste and disposal associated with product's lifecycle.
Good Design achieves MORE with LESS.
Best Designs are based on Purpose and Function.
Good Technology is hot, waste is not!
