Product Development

Industries across the globe rely on the robustness of product designs to create high-value and high-quality products for consumers. We work with companies to optimize and improve product designs in every aspect, from functional performance, to reliability and durability, to lifecycle environmental impacts.

We use advanced modeling and simulation tools to expand the understanding of product performance, including the impacts of parameter variation. This capability helps our clients improve product robustness and reduce development time. It also can reduce the number of back and forth iterations between product engineering and manufacturing process developers/managers. We can create a functional prototype in days, adjusting and iterating just as quickly, and often achieving this benefit at a lower cost than traditional methods.

We can help you with:

  • Design for manufacturing, recycling, remanufacturing, and the environment
  • Material selection/substitution
  • Performance evaluation, testing, and product validation (including test system development)
  • Product failure analysis including materials and metallurgical analysis, and Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
  • Model-based design creation, with capabilities such as: static and dynamic structural analysis, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), and Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
  • Adding intelligence to your product: sensing, communications, internet of things
  • Integration of electrical, mechanical, and software solutions
  • 3D imaging and dimensional verification
  • Application of rapid prototyping solutions
  • Integration of reverse engineering techniques
