We propose that design-build-test projects are changed into test-design-build projects, in line with the philosophy in lean product development. More focus is put on the early stages of the PD process, with knowledge discovery and testing to find out which of several/many possible solutions to a problem should be developed into a product. This fits very well with CDIO ideas. We want to discuss the problems associated with such a change in a round table session.
