ockham's razor

"Less is more " is perhaps the suitable saying that springs to mind when we talk about this design principle, Ockham's Razor. When two products that perform the same functions but one is designed in a complicated way and the other one is less it , people tend to choose the simplest one . The statement of Ockham’s you Razor implies that unnecessary elements in a design or formulation decrease it’s efficiency (and increase the probability of unanticipated consequences).  The key is to keep the design simple, but no simpler, without compromising on the performance.
