Design Methodology

A phase gate design process is used internally to meet the objectives of the project. The client is involved at key decision points where business/performance trade-offs are made. Each step builds on the previous step, ultimately achieving the desired manufacturing or prototype goals.

Every project is different and a custom program is tailored to meet your budget, timelines, and performance goals. The key benefit to this methodology is risk mitigation. Risks are identified and addressed early to prevent costly rework down the road. Mini prototypes are sometimes warranted to test a key aspect of the design. Quoting from Stephen Covey, “Begin with the end in mind” drives our methodology while minimizing risk.
