Collaborative Innovation for Product Development
Better End-Products, Begin with the Process.
Tips for a Successful Product Launch: Product Design Reviews
Effective and Efficient Product Development begins with a solid foundation, well-defined objectives and accessible resources to achieve a desired goal. Through Collaborative Innovation, Xcentric can help you create tomorrow's low-cost products quickly, in just a matter of days.
We all know that creating a new product is by no means an easy task. With so many variables to account for and obstacles to overcome, making sure you follow a systematic approach not only helps you to eliminate potential development risks but also enables you to create better end-products.
Typically, there are multiple design reviews that occur at different stages of the development process, these reviews ensure that advancements or improvements to a products, look, feel shape or size in fact are justifiable so that the process can continue moving forward. These kind of i...
Typically, there are multiple design reviews that occur at different stages of the development process, these reviews ensure that advancements or improvements to a products, look, feel shape or size in fact are justifiable so that the process can continue moving forward.
These kind of independent product assessments are essential because they provide concrete documentation detailing the concept of a new product, the design of a new product and the ability to physically manufacture the product is in fact possible and creates a smoother transition into production.
At Xcentric we understand the importance of pre-production assessment. We provide our customers with complimentary Moldflow and Design for manufacturability reports before we move into a production level setting because we care about your products success and are willing to take the extra steps to ensure the parts you receive are able to be manufactured to the desired specifications your products require.
Our experienced team of engineering professionals are able to provide an objective based perspective pertaining to your products design to help minimize the risk of potential details being overlooked. Working side-by-side with your team, Xcentric is able to provide you with as much information up-front, helping you to reach your goals and create better end products.
