Attention Engineer! Your boss wants you to model a complicated system, design a device to counteract system instabilities and reach set points, work with manufacturers and distributors to fabricate a prototype, and then test and confirm that your device works according to the desired specifications. And he wants this done pronto

So you make a plan: First you’ll measure the response of the system with a few instruments, then spend countless hours modeling the system parameters in the time domain. You’ll grapple with every element of the model to design a device capable of attenuating the system response, then fabricate and test the device, which will, of course, require extensive re-calibration. Then you’ll test and tweak your device until you’ve finally met the desired specifications and are ready to pitch the device to the customer.

Not anymore. With a simple modification, you just might be able to drastically improve your efficiency and your customers’ confidence in your work product.
