New product development being a complex and critical process, it’s always a good idea to get a second opinion product design review before you opt for product development. Whether you are looking forward to develop products with electronics, electro-mechanical products, products with imbedded software, medical device products or anything else, a second review certainly helps you save your time and money.
The GID Development Corporation shares with you some of the reasons a second opinion is a smart move when it comes to custom / new product development.
Big Brands Always Get Second Opinions on Product Development:
It’s a universal fact that a new line product hitting the shelf is reviewed by dozens of engineers and clears multiple quality checks. To avoid any manufacturing complications, big brands across the globe ensure that all engineers designing new products get lots of second opinions from other designers.
In the product design and development industry, second opinions are termed as design reviews. To ensure a fruitful second review, design engineers are required to present their new product design to other designers. This step certainly helps the designer to identify minor design issues that could lead to a major error.
Another reason why large companies emphasize on the second opinion design reviews is because electronic products, products with imbedded software and other modern day products are complex in nature, and regardless to the engineer, mistakes are almost made when designing anything complex. Therefore, it is in our favor to take every possible step to minimize the risk of design mistakes.
Second Opinions Will Reduce Your Prototyping Costs
Product prototype development is yet another expensive step involved in the process of new product development; therefore, being a responsible entrepreneur / inventor, we need to make sure that the design is accurate before prototyping.
Most product manufacturing companies prefer at least three revisions to get products ready for market; however, the number and severity of the changes required will be considerably decreased with design reviews. A second opinion design review before prototype development is one of the best ways to reduce manufacturing cost and time.
Your Wireless Design is Likely to Be Junk Without a Second Opinion
Manufacturing wireless products like WiFi, Bluetooth, or GPS is a job of high precision, and unfortunately, 75-85% of engineers get it wrong when it comes to designing wireless parts. Some mistakes are so major that the prototype may not work at all or may function in a very limited fashion.
Designing multifaceted products with imbedded software, electro-mechanical, electronic parts or something similar is quite different than ordinary products. Therefore, if you are planning a product with multiple functionalities, then you should get a second opinion.
The advantages of second opinion design reviews carry over into all the aspects of designing and manufacturing a new product. The opinion of multiple design veterans is always a smart move.
When it comes to new product development, hiring a product development company with years of experience and teams of engineers having specialization in different engineering fields is a wise move.
If you just had that your eureka moment, then the GID Development Corporation can certainly help you bring your ideas to life.
