Are you looking for sustainable growth in your business?

Well, innovation is the key and designing new products as per the evolving market needs is the ultimate solution. So, if you want to excel in your industry, you will require a robust product design, development service and End-to-end product delivery.

Product design and development are entirely driven by human experience and creativity. With technological advancements and updates, it has revolutionized the entire End-to-end product design and development solutions.

These days experts are using Natural Processing Language (NLP) and knowledge graph driven techniques for gaining customer feedback and are implementing those inputs for developing the final product.Compared to traditional approaches and techniques, such modern techniques have higher accuracy and speed and ace up the user requirements in parallel to the market competition.

However, this industry is growing exponentially and demands speciality roles for UI or UX designers. And today, UX Researchers, interaction designers and copywriters also contribute crucially for end to end product engineering and development.

What is End to End Product Development?

Let’s understand the End-to-End Product Solutions and its development process in detail-

Product Designing and Engineering Process

We follow a simplified and advanced process to deliver overall hardware product engineering services for helping businesses in gaining an edge over competitors. Our process includes-

Generating Innovative Ideas

1. Brain Storming Sessions

Before we delve into the designing process, we discuss ideas and conduct brainstorming sessions to encounter problems and solutions. It’s very important to ask and discuss the ‘Why’ and prepare a strategy of how our team will be working on that.

With a clear vision in mind, we give a purpose to our team of designers and product engineers for what they are trying to build.

Many times professional designers directly jump into designing and developing without having any clear idea about the defined goals or client’s requirements. This will ultimately increase the no. of revisions and may lead to disastrous results in the end.

2. Defining the Product and Its Features

MoSCoW categorization method

After brainstorming, when all the viable ideas for a product are chosen, highlight and focus on the implementation part. Follow a MoSCoW categorization method for prioritizing the features of products. It begins with-

M = It ‘must have’ some important and keynote features. Without such features, you can’t meet the purpose of the product.

S = It ‘should have’ some essential features that are not vital but add significant value to the product.

C = It ‘could have’ such features that are not necessary to the core function of the product. But may leave a smaller impact on the product if you have left it out.

W = It ‘will not have such features and functions that can create a negative impact of the product in the minds of customers.

While selecting the list of features, first empathize with the users and follow this approach of is the core, expected and augmented the requirement of your product. Researchers often validate this product market fit by conducting User Research for better customer insight.

3. Validating the concept

Conducting user research is extremely important to know your customers, understand the moves of your competitors, define the current and potential trends, assess the product’s prospective longevity and take the first-mover advantage significantly.

  • Some of the user research methods include-

User interviews – Interviews are conducted in person or remotely to uncover insights from direct conversions with the users.

Online surveys – Online surveys are conducted to collect a pool of data from a large range of customers in a short period of time.

Contextual inquiry – Through this, you can empathize with your users by observing how they go about their routine tasks in the natural setting.

  • User Analysis

After collecting the data from user research, we conduct ‘affinity mapping’ and synthesize our findings by categorizing them into groups. Through this, you can draw insights from raw data that will help you in making informed decisions.

Thus, based on these insights and outcomes, you can justify the practicality of the concept before investing in any resources. These research techniques will force you to think more realistically and thoroughly.

Product Designing

  • Sketching

The main objective behind sketching is to communicate the core concept and find out defects and flaws at the beginning itself. Sketching a rough design doesn’t require professionals. Having an artistic capability will itself get your work done.

However, any large project with a significant budget requires advanced sketching technology to narrow down the direction of the main concept. Such technologies are-

  • CAD

Computer-Aided Design (CAD) is a technology for designing computer models from concepts and early sketches.

It replaces the manual drafting with an automated process. This technique is typically used for building the prototype and understanding the validation of the idea in an advanced manner.

Many times, the output derived from CAD design is used as an input for a 3D printer for streamlining the designing process.

  • 3D Rendering

3D rendering refers to adapting with the likeness of an object and turning the information from a 3D model into a 2D image. Through this, you can see a good detail of color, form, material and appearance.

However, if you add background or animation to the image, you give life to the object. This will help you in understanding the typical look and feel of the product.

Thus, technology is pushing its boundaries to support the future of product design. It goes beyond incorporating intelligent tools and customer insights and contributes indispensably towards making a low cost manufacturing feasible along with a high level of automation.

Product Development

Hardware Development

  • Designing PCB

After creating the 3D model, our certified engineers will design and create a layout of your PCB. We will scrutinize every activity and ensure that you come with a cost effective and pragmatically sized circuit board. Besides that, our QA analyst works incessantly in scanning the errors and debugging the flaws at the early stage.

  • Creating PCB and Prototyping

After finalizing the layout of the PCB, our electronic engineers will start working on creating the PCB and prototyping. Now once the prototype is ready, you hold the actual product in your hands. Here we expect some revisions and modifications to the product prototyping before announcing it as the final version for manufacturing.

  • Costing Process and BOM

Industrial Design

Industrial Design is the professional practice of designing objects, devices, products or services by focusing on physical appearance, manufacturability, and functionality.

During the designing process, industrial designers often aim at improving routine life activities through well-executed design.

However, in technical terms, it consists of more two-dimensional features and three-dimensional functions serving as a problem solving model for businesses and corporations through systems, services, innovative products and experiences.

Industrial design places humans in the center and interacts with products used in day-to-day routine. It provides you a more optimistic way of looking at the future by reframing problems as an opportunity to co-create a better quality of life.
