From Concept to Commercialization

Our highly skilled teams guide your project from ideation to commercialization using our proprietary IDWorks® innovation, design, development, and project management process. Through the process, our industrial designers work in collaboration with our experienced tooling and process engineers to provide a unique and effective approach to problem-solving. The design elements focused on form and function are balanced in real-time with the practical concerns of manufacture. This reduces the number and frequency of design revisions, accelerates your speed-to-market, and lowers your overall commercialization costs.

PHASE 0

DEFINE THE NEED

Define the Need

We begin by obtaining an in-depth understanding of your needs and the needs of your end users to set the foundation for our mutual success.

PHASE 1

Ideation

Ideation

We combine a thorough understanding of your success criteria with our technical expertise and innovation capabilities to deliver creative design options by optimizing the manufacturing process with the success of the end product in mind.

PHASE 2

Design & Development

Design and Development

We live and breathe Design for Excellence (DFX) principles, including Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DFMA) and Design for Six Sigma (DFSS). Our in-house modeling, simulation, and additive manufacturing capabilities help rapidly move your project from concept to 3D design to a physical prototype.

PHASE 3

Design & Process Optimization

Design and Process Optimization

Our Innovation & Design Centers and our quantitative and qualitative testing enable us to deliver prototype tools and benchtop assembly equipment that drive accelerated design and process optimization, verification, and validation.

PHASE 4

Manufacturing

Manufacturing

Our manufacturing team works alongside our design team to seamlessly transfer product and process knowledge. This enables us to scale up quickly, efficiently, and robustly and reduces your time to market.

PHASE 5

Continuous Improvement

Continuous Improvement

Throughout the life of your product, we diligently and tirelessly pursue product, process, and supply chain improvements to create greater value for our customers.
