Our proven end to end process allows us to support our clients at every stage of the new product development cycle
Opportunity Analysis & Development Planning
We work with our clients to clearly understand and decipher the key value drivers of your new product, recognize your commercial realities and distill them into a detailed development plan options for you to review & approve
During this phase, our research team will partner with you to define the market, the need-want-problem to be solved, relative importance of each, willingness and ability to pay for solutions that solve them vs. substitutes and build market adoption models. Once understood, our team will develop detailed development plans that define time to market and investment options to scale your product for you to select from.
Requirements Definition and Development
Requirements Definition is about working with your customers to understand the features and functions needed to deliver on the value drivers critical for the products success and translate them into detailed product requirements for our team to design your product to
During this phase, our team will work with customers to define the capabilities that a system must have (functional) and properties of that system (non-functional) to meet the users’ needs within the scope of the project and business case. This includes defining quality and reliability acceptance limits.
Conceptual Design Development
Concept design is about translating the product requirements into viable product concepts to test and optimize with customers
During this phase, the focus is specifically on the overall styling and the functional detail of the product. Our industrial designers and engineers collaborate with customers to explore different ideas which are presented through creative sketches, renderings, CAD models and rapid prototypes. Prototyping enables us to understand customer preference on how a product looks, functions and performs prior to investing in costly tooling.
Detailed Engineering Design and Analysis
Our mechanical and electrical engineers utilize structured methodologies to ensure quality and reliability is designed into your product. We want to ensure your product will always meet the performance, manufacturing productivity, serviceability and cost targets defined for the product
During this phase, our engineers focus on developing and analyzing designs to meet functional, performance, and cost requirements. We utilize disciplined processes – Design for Six Sigma, Robust Design, Design for Manufacturability, Assembly and Serviceability methodologies to ensure this happens.
Design Validation and Manufacturing Scale-Up
Product testing and Manufacturing process development is a critical part of any products success. Cost, quality, reliability and a products serviceability need to be developed concurrently with the product.
During this phase, our team develops the test and assembly systems needed to ensure the robust processes and quality test methods developed during earlier phases are scaled into the production level systems needed to produce the product. We also validate the product produced from these systems meets the defined product, quality and manufacturing requirements.
