    Default meaning

    Hi,

    could you please explain what "requirements of this mind" mean in the following sentence (it is a text about various demands made on products):

    "By fulfilling the requirements of this mind, the company can offer products that meet the needs of the end users even after repeated use."

    Thanks a lot!

    Hanka

    There isn't enough context. It makes no sense as it stands. What does "this mind" refer to?

    Thatīs what Iīm interested in too
    The preceding sentences only say that the products are subject to intensive wear and that specific properties must be maintained over the entire lifetime of the products, which requires specialized materials and processes. And then the above-mentioned sentence follows.

    Is it perhaps badly written, and trying to say "By keeping these requirements in mind"?

    I think you are right, because it does not make sense as it stands. Thanks a lot!
