Translating ideas into real-time products is a step by step process. Winning ideas must pass three key points for development consideration.
If all indicators point to success, the design process begins.
Further Design STEPs
Depending on a projects complexity, diverse resources may be pooled to create the best finished product. Multiple review stages help ensure that finished designs meet or beat all expectations. When drawings are complete, prototyping begins: holding a prototype in hand is much different that looking at a drawing on paper. Prototypes are a key step to identifying and resolving final design issues. Sometimes, multiple prototypes are created before the final design is approved.
T1 or first shot samples lead to tooling modification and polishing. T2 and T3 samples are produced if required. A limited-edition ’pilot run’ helps identify any remaining issues and becomes the first actual production. Samples from the pilot run are used for all necessary certifications. Once market testing is approved, full production is ready to commence. Throughout the development process, supply chains are analyzed, QA monitoring points are identified, and a complete QA protocol is established.
