The Engineering team is responsible for designing the input system specifications from the customers on the organization’s product and working within synergies with the Product delivery engineering team deployed in the field that are facing the customers.
The relationship with engineering and product delivery teams works very well because engineers are both familiar with the design and delivery of the product. Further, it minimizes the traveling requirements per engineer in the team because the teams can rotate the engineers from the office and the customer. The most important detail tasks and duties that identified for the Engineering and Product delivery engineers are as follows.
