There are moments when nothing is working. It is the moment of acid test. The product development is going awful right now. We produce good quality powders sometimes, but not repeatable with every run. Suddenly the powder producing reactor is down and I assume a 2-weeks downtime in this critical time. My cores are either breaking apart or having no good insulation layer. The die started to act weird. Magnetic measurement system is acting strange time to time. We promised a product delivery in two months!

My son is in NICU. It’s been neve wrecking to go through this and the uncertainty of product development, at the same time. No place to vent, no additional help in personal life. Work-wise it is chaotic and getting help from employees to move on with the product development. I know time can be harder, but it is really hard!
