Vice President, Rational Complex & Embedded Systems
This graphic is a really clever way of seeing the effects of product evolution in a highly regulated market. F1 cars are constrained by very strict rules, subject to inspection and penalties, and those rules change every year. F1 teams work hard to be agile and to adapt to these changing rules, and they are innovative in trying to find designs which maximize performance within the regulatory constraints. I believe all our clients are going through this, at different rates and with different complexity. But, this is the nature of competing in today's markets.
