The market need that BD had identified was clear: the ability to rapidly administer and track vaccinations or drugs delivered to many patients at a time in a mobile setting. BD recognized that a Lean Startup approach to rapidly develop a functional prototype would allow them to immediately test the injector concept viability. Enter Key Tech.
We were given three months to develop a one-handed electromechanical injector for use in marketing demonstrations. The injector loads a pre-filled syringe, identifies the vaccine automatically, injects, and discards upon completion.
What are some key principles for developing a functional prototype in a short period of time?
