A lean process reduces risk and yields better results.
Our process has been refined over hundreds of projects. It is based on rapid iterations that produce concrete ideas and tangible prototypes that can be viewed, assessed, tested, and refined.
Using our proven step-by-step process, we work with you to create the product, packaging, and materials you need to confidently pursue your business goals, knowing you have access to engineering, design and commercialization support at all times.
Research your category and lay solid project plans.
Our cost-effective up-front analysis and user value testing provides a clearer picture of your competition, price/cost options, patent strategy, customer valued features, market specific requirements, and more.
Armed with these insights, we can work with you to set your overall innovation strategy, confidently refine product feature priorities, set cost targets, identify the most promising creative and technical directions, and establish a solid project plan.
Transform your vision into a useful engaging product.
Our lean process is a proven method for harnessing our creative and technical capabilities to turn ideas into simple to use products that deliver conspicuous customers value.
Whether in the same room or collaborating from a distance with our state-of-the-art conferencing tools, we work closely with you and your team to brainstorm, develop concepts, and iteratively refine these ideas into a business-oriented product solution.
Your new product must exceed user expectations about performance, quality, and cost. It may also need to meet stringent regulatory requirements.
Our expert engineering team has the analysis tools and technical expertise to help you reduce risk and solve tough problems. Tricky assembly; sophisticated materials selection; novel manufacturing processes; complex stress, thermal, or vibration concerns – whatever your technical hurdles, we can help.
Add intelligence and connectivity to your product.
From industrial instruments and medical devices to Internet-connected consumer products and everything between, we have the electronics design experience to reliably deliver the whole market-ready product.
Our engineering team has proven methodologies, intimate knowledge of the latest standards and frameworks, and years of experience designing, testing, and certifying hardware, firmware, and software applications.
Show and validate your design early, reduce your risk.
Prototypes are essential when developing physical products. With our in-house modeling and fabrication capabilities, and our established network of reliable prototype suppliers, we build thousands of models and prototypes each year for all kinds of physical products and demonstration units.
For low cost predictable development, we create virtual renderings, physical bench models and fully functional prototypes to evaluate and assess your products utility to customers prior to manufacturing.
To design a great product, you must know the process. 70% of a product's cost is locked-in during the early design stage, so we apply our extensive knowledge of manufacturing right at the start of your project.
We engage component suppliers and potential contract manufacturers early in the design or work closely with your in-house production team. This removes surprises during the new product introduction process to minimize the development cost and reduce time required to complete manufacturing set-up for full production
