Couldn't agree more. I've rarely seen an instance where you try to set price first on a piece of hardware (especially a ground breaking design) and then back the BOM into that price work out well.

You pretty much have to have deep expertise on the piece of hardware you are building for this work well, and on a "complex" device like this, I don't think it can ever be done properly.
