Tue Apr 4th | 12-12:45 PM (PST) : Quantifying the Performance of a System with Several Parts

For example, winter athletes don’t stay warm, dry and protected with just one garment. Rather, they use layers that perform different functions. Data for each layer is not enough. What if the waterproofing in one layer negates the breathability of another? Join us to examine the use, the user and their situation when developing and making claims.
