Your product creation and design source for marketable and manufaturable prototypes
The idea is assessed using Ideation InternationalísTRIZ Ideation Software to fully identify all potential
intellectual property. Then we brainstorm and begin
to sketch it out.
We seek out non-biased perspectives on the
idea in the interest of identifying faults and
zeroing in on ideas for improvement.
With the aid of Dassault Systemes powerful design
software, CATIA, construction begins on a virtual
model. With this tool we can also investigate
production strategies and user interface.
CATIAís unparalleled capability to simulate operation
is put to use to investigate feasibility in early stages of
development. This saves time and expense by pushing
back the need for physical prototypes until later in the
cycle when the design is more fully developed.
A physical representation of the design
is created to provide new insights and
perspectives on the design.
A physical mock-up is created by
The Henry Ford Model Makerís Club
using the facilites made available
by TechShop Detroit.
We verify that the products meets
the goals derived from the initial
market research and the design is
desirable by potential customers.
Enhancments are made to the
design to improve its function and
appeal based on market feedback
and prototype performance.
The culmination of the project; a fully
functional prototype. It can be used to go into
production, sell the product to a company or be
used for long term studies of the products endurance
