Product Design and Development
ABOUT Product Design and Development
Technology: Product Design and Development Services constitute a suite of engineering, design, and testing services focused on bringing new products to market. Such services can include the making of models for prototypes, pilots, and production, project management, feasibility studies, etc. Testing services in this category relate to accelerated life tests, compliance testing, design verification, and so on. Product design and development firms routinely venture into other aspects of design and development, such as solid modeling, CAD, rapid prototyping, etc. but the fundamental aspect of design and development is concept creation and refinement.

Some product designers and developers specialize in a particular industry such as medical devices or in particular materials/applications such as injection molded parts. Others offer a more holistic approach, designing for any intention and in an array of materials.

Advantages: Product design and development services add technical expertise to firms that don't normally maintain a staff of experts in this process.
  • Small companies bringing their first ideas to market
  • Large companies whose routine is manufacturing their existing products with new ones coming along only every so often

    Limitations of Product Design and Development Services
  • Many such firms specialize in particular product types, requiring detailed searching to find a fit
  • Lose a chance at on-the-job learning of this key aspect of product manufacturing

    Applications: Product design and development services are appropriate to many development projects, but especially
  • Medical devices, due to the complex validating processes
  • Product redesign
  • One-off projects that must be right the first and only time
  • Help the Right Buyers Find You
