The product development process starts with realizing the Product Design that you have already or developed with us. Some new products require prototype manufacturing, while others are best catered to with the customization of similar existing samples. We review the physical design to a granular level testing the functionality and user experience.
We review the supply chain and manufacturing costs to see how scaling creates production bottlenecks so you have contingency plans for any unforeseen problems and quick growth. Prototype manufacturing is very different from mass production and has to be accounted for by reviewing the concrete work steps.
The final step in the pre-production phase is to find the right suppliers. We test suppliers for their ability to provide the product at the price point we estimated for the quality we defined. Once this step is completed, you’re ready to move on to the last step of our product development consulting–Mass Production.
Custom sample procurement is needed for products that are already manufactured in a somewhat similar way. This could mean that you have the idea to change the shape, functionality, or maybe even just the branding of an existing product. New product development is usually cheaper and faster when you build upon existing products, because the more elaborate prototype manufacturing from scratch can be avoided. We as your product development firm offer this principle as well, which is known as private labeling, white labeling or ODM manufacturing.
