this is true. I've never understood why more companies don't listen to their most educated/respected sales persons on product design. These are the guys that really know what needs to be done for the business men to make money and to bring the engineers back to reality.

Engineers/mathematicians have a tendency to over-analyze just about everything, then we end up with much more than needed for a lot of things that aren't used. Add to that business men that try to cut costs on those unnecessary/superfluous/over-engineered pieces, its a wonder how more products and vehicles don't end up heaping piles of dog crap.
