Mensagem:  In other words, the product is user-friendly, so easy that you have only to do little to use it. You set it, and then you can focus your attention to other goals, etc.


"Setting and forgetting" is something that you can program and forget for a long time, in a way switching on a ceiling fan is a "setting and forgetting' operation, you could switch on and it would go on automatic for the rest of the day, or night.

To use a drone to take photos of a building site, or operate a self-driven car wouldn´t be a "setting and forgetting" stuff, you would be required to do adjustments and/or sending inputs all the time.  The same thing to a laser surgery.

In short, the more complex a system or the more variables or factors in play, the more you have to monitor his activity.  In this the system is a bit mechanical or one that requires interventions or inputs, not a "setting and forgetting" one.
