Once you have a product design, the next step to validate and improve the new product concept is to make a prototype.
We can work on it faster than most factories. We procure the parts needed and assemble them in our own facility. And we give feedback about ease of manufacturing that will be quite helpful.
Reliability Engineering & Testing
We run laboratory tests on your product prototypes to test their functionality and reliability to reduce consumer risks, complaints, and recalls.
Each product, including its intended use, is somewhat specific and needs a customized plan which we devise for you based on your budget, product type, and market compliance requirements. Testing includes environmental tests, acceleration tests, life tests, and packaging reliability, too.
Design for Manufacturing (DFM) Review
Do you know how far off your design is from being ready for mass production?
Our engineering team reviews your product design to understand your design intent, objectives, and constraints you are working under. They focus on ease of manufacturing custom parts and ease of assembly and provide a list of suggestions for changes to your next iteration.
Introduction in China
In our experience, many companies find developing and producing a new product in China really tough, as they lack the experience to make it happen smoothly.
If you want your project to be among the minority of successful launches, our experienced engineers work by your side to design and implement a new product introduction process to get your new product mass produced without delay, within budget, and at the required quality level.
360 Degree Product Risk Assessment
When a company purchases a product (or component) that is already developed (or is being developed), some of the due diligence work needs to be performed on the product itself, too. We confirm that a product is safe for you to buy right now.
We check the product design for risks, compliance requirements, durability & reliability performance, draft a QA plan, including an inspection checklist, and more, to assure your products are suitable before you part with any money.
Industrial Design Support
Stuck at the product design stage and need to get to production? We find you the right solutions, for the right cost.
Our industrial designers and structural and mechanical engineers support your project from the design phase with improvement suggestions, alignment with what can actually be achieved in China, & simulations to assure that the final product reaches your requirements.
Sample Evaluation & Comparison
Many business decisions are taken on the basis of a sample received from a manufacturer.
You need to know if samples from your suppliers differ, and detecting differences quickly is important for avoiding problems in production later.
However, you may not have manpower, expertise, or equipment to evaluate those samples when it comes to aesthetics, performance, construction, etc. That’s where our engineers help you.
NPI Deliverables Review
You don’t want to give the green light for production without ensuring that all appropriate preparations have been done. Manufacturers’ project managers may be too busy or lack the experience needed to review all the usual deliverables.
Our team steps in to review all the completed NPI (product development and pre-production) work for you to assure nothing is missed that could derail the project.
Production Readiness Review
Typical Asian suppliers assure you all will be fine when you know risks are high.
The small production run(s) before mass production is a critical time when major issues need to be surfaced and addressed.
We conduct a review at the factory before you give the green light to release large amounts of materials into manufacturing so you can confirm readiness based on facts.
