Like any business you really need to prepare a business plan to outline all these things. Market research will help address a lot of these issues. In US the likes of SCORE and SBA can provide free business advice and help.

Perhaps you should consider a partnership, as you state you are an engineer, maybe you need someone more focused on business and negotiations rather than the technology.
