What are we trying to solve, what is the aim, why is it important? Does the product have any contradictions that must be worked with or solved?
What systems and functions are needed to make it work? We help you to explore the full scope of your product.
We look at existing and similar products, and study available online reviews, to find out what people like and dislike.
Our research is evaluated carefully. If we have identified design contradictions, we consider all aspects and employ various techniques and useTRIZ to propose solutions – e.g. the product must be big but small, which is the most important, can we achieve both?
The output from this process is a specification for the functions of the product that can be updated as required via the live project tool
This is where we rapidly evolve the design bringing it closer to the specification with iteration cycles. Each cycle consists of planning, doing, studying and reviewing.
Using Sketches, 3D CAD and building prototypes, we are able to identify further issues and understand all aspects of user interactions with the product.
If we realise through this process that a product has to alter, we promptly apply the changes and update our client with reasoning for our decisions and suggestions. When the agreed targets are met, we can step out of the cycles and move forward.
Drawings and files are released to the client, or into our managed manufacturing operations. Consisting of detailed technical drawings 3D files circuit diagrams and PCB gerber files,together with listing materials and components required to produce.
We use the output from our design process as the starting block of our manufacturing services. Throughout our design process we ensure the product is designed correctly for its proposed manufacturing method.
We can, provide support for product marketing and sales distribution, and assist with trade shows and product launches.
Research & Explore
We use an iterative design process consisting of 5 key steps, and at the heart of this is our unique iterign live projectsonline tool. Our process helps our team of designers and engineers to focus their creativity and share this with our clients.
We research and define the functional specifications of the product. Next we iterate, rapidly improving the design into a functional product. When we have achieved the agreed specification, we deliver our output ready to start our managed manufacturing service.
iterative design = iterign
iterign live projects
We tackle project management from an entirely different angle, like our innovative designs, we focus on communication and collaboration, updating our progress with real time information securely online.
This allows our clients to see and to get involved in the design throughout the project.
Our clients and staff can: Assign to-dos and tasks. Set milestones. Collaboratively write documents. Share files. Discuss ideas. Make decisions.
Recent developments in social media have impacted the way we communicate and interact with each other. We have harnessed this, and placed it at the heart of our product design process.
