Product Design & Development is a very broad concept and if the proper approach is not taken it can be a very costly and time-consuming process. At WB Engineering we take a very systematic approach to Product Design and Development. Starting with research, then working our way into functional specification and design intent.
Once the project goals are mapped out and design intent is confirmed and approved by the client. conceptual designs will be created. The conceptual designs generated by our industrial Designers will always take into consideration, feasibility, functionality, and manufacturability. During the conceptual design stage, WB Engineering will work closely with the client in order to ensure we are working towards the same end goal. Combining Conceptual Design, and Functional Specifications, WB Engineering will work towards a client approved conceptual design.
WB Engineering will be able to then move toward applying engineering to the approved conceptual design. During the Engineering phase, WB Engineering creates a digital prototype of the clients product, this gives our engineers the ability to virtually explore the product before it’s ever built
A digital prototype is a fully detailed computer-aided design (CAD) of your product, which allows us to design, iterate, optimize, validate, and visualize your products digitally throughout the product development process. It will include details such as material selection, assembly details, OEM components, surface finishing, color, material properties…etc.
Digital Prototyping goes beyond simply creating product designs in 3D. It allows our engineers gives a way to assess the operation of moving parts, to determine whether or not the product will fail, and see how the various product components interact. By simulating and validating the real-world performance of a product design digitally, WB Engineering can reduce the number of physical prototypes needed before a product can be manufactured.
This is what differentiate WB Engineering from other product design companies. While these companies use the traditional product design process which is DESIGN-BUILD-TEST-FIX (Many times over). WB Engineering instead uses Digital Prototyping which changes the traditional product design cycle to DESIGN-ANALYZE-TEST-BUILD
Studies show that by using Digital Prototyping to catch design problems up front, manufacturers experience fewer change orders downstream. Because the geometry in digital prototypes is highly accurate, companies can check interferences to avoid assembly issues that generate change orders in the testing and manufacturing phases of development.Companies can also perform simulations in early stages of the product development cycle, so they avoid failure modes during testing or manufacturing phases. With a Digital Prototyping approach, companies can digitally test a broader range of their product’s performance. They can also test design iterations quickly to assess whether they’re over- or under-designing components.
Studies show that by using Digital Prototyping to catch design problems up front, manufacturers experience fewer change orders downstream. If all possible, WB Engineering leaves little to chance. With products as simplistic as a cell phone case to medical devices, the same due diligence is taken. We have the ability to analyze your part digitally to ensure the product will perform under stress, find failure points, optimized for manufacturability to cut cost and improve product performance, …etc. This level of detail gives your project a much higher level of success because there will be less errors, more efficiency and shorter lead times when you manufacture your product, in turn saving a significant amount of money and time.
