Staged validation, tooling and mass production set up
With a fully qualified and user tested design in place and the capital required to mass produce, we can configure the roadmap and manufacturing partners to meet the budget, volume and delivery needs of your product. Through our qualified and trusted procurement, supply chain, logistics and manufacturing partners, we can get your product to market fast.
REFINE – Manufacturing details
The next step is to refine the design and engineering to meet validation criteria, so that mass produced units meet the design specifications and perform as expected. Detailed testing carried out here is about details like waterproofing features, drop-testing, emissions compliance, the durability of coatings and finishes and so on. Suitable manufacturing partners are selected and introduced to assist with meeting the specific requirements of the production processes.
TOOL – Mass production
The tooling required for mass production encompasses a significant part of the production budget and so getting the design of the tools right is a high priority. The soft tooling created in the Product Development phase should be as close as possible to the final design, but manufacturing requirements and changes to materials are key drivers.
MANUFACTURE – Making units
Even once the production process is defined and set up with high quality tooling, there is still a ramping up process to contend with to ensure high yield. In this stage of production units are carefully checked against quality and cosmetic standards. Failure rate must be reduced to an acceptable level by fine tuning the production process. We will manage the procurement and supply chain logistics and work very closely with our UK, EU and global supply chain to deliver your product on mass.
The finished products are supplied into your distribution network and shipped to end users.
