Communication with experts from different fields

Effective communication is an essential skill that is used daily and is related
to success in all facets of life.
Communication with experts from different fields of sciences – in design
teams represents a big challenge for each member involved in the team. It is
recognized as a interdisciplinary approach of research and the solution for
an effective communication is that each specialist to know and understand
the basic knowledge from the others. So, a common knowledge pool is
established and this will create the basic for understating one each other.

Communication process monitoring, by elements:
1. Monitoring the information source – clear and understandable message,
information presentation public/target oriented;
2. Transmitter – monitor the whole message transmition through the
channel. The transmiter has to be design to accept all kind of messages
used by the design actors (drawing, text, presentations, results simulation
files etc.).
3. Channel – monitor the process communication through the channel is
linked with: monitor the message sending process and the noise sources

How to prepare a presentation?

When prepare a presentation you have to focus on the audiance interests:
Designers – focus on engineering solutions, product functions realization
Manufacturing engineers – focus on product manufacturability
Logistics engineers – focus on suppliers selection, product distribution
Marketing people – focus on the product benefits, satisfaction for clients,
customers (product, price, placement and publicity policies). The product
functions have to be linked with a customer need satisfaction
End-of-life specialist – focus on the EOF product behavior.
The product impact on the environment has to be a subject that is a general
focus of all actors!

When the screen lights up with a slide filled with dense text and highly
detailed tables, charts, and graphs, the focus of the audience immediately,
and involuntarily, goes to the graphics, and they start to read. When they
start reading, they stop listening. The graphics then become the center of
attention and the presenter becomes subordinate to the slide show. This
problem is compounded as the presenter becomes a reader, too. The results
are a failure to connect, a failure to communicate, and most likely, a failure
to persuade.
To make all of the above happen, we need the guiding principles. These
principles are:
Presenter Focus and Less Is More – In addition, there is a third vital element
in the equation: Perception Psychology, the audience and how they take in
what they see.
Finally, you can turn to graphics to help communicate your flow.Welldesigned
graphics not only convey information clearly and attractively, they
also help establish the connections among ideas by Graphic Continuity.
Again, the panoramic view offers an excellent perspective on the flow of
your innovation presentation.
