Introducing a new product into the market is a dream come true for every inventor. Introducing a new product, however, is not easy. While conceiving an idea and outlining it on a piece of paper might be simple, creating a new product from that idea is certainly a challenging task. New product development involves the creation of a constructive new product design, development of alpha and beta prototypes, testing of the prototypes, development of production tooling, mass-manufacturing of the new product, distribution of the new product, and many other crucial processes in between. Each new product development stage is vital, but in this blog, we will shed some light on new product design.

Like every other stage involved in new product development, the stage of new product design is very important. Because it comes in the early stages of new product development, understanding the product design stage demands a bit more attention. Besides, since it is one of the primary stages of new product development, the entire outcome depends on it; hence, more care is needed during this stage – the product design stage.

The success of any product heavily relies on its product design. Product design by definition can be said as, “a process of defining and creating constructive designs for a product, so as to ensure that the new product becomes successful in the market.” New product design addresses numerous things, however. For one, during the product design stage itself, the inventor can get a clear idea whether or not it is possible or feasible to create the new product. Another crucial thing the product design addresses to is the cost of manufacturing the conceived product. Most inventors, often overlook this “new product design and cost of manufacturing” aspect. In fact, some inventors do not even know what the effects of new product design are on the cost of manufacturing the final product.

Product design is not only defining and creating alluring designs for the new product, but it is also about crafting practical, functional, and cost-effective designs for the new product. Aspects such as, how many parts the new product will have, how compact or large the parts will be, what material(s) the parts will be made of, what process will be used in the production of those parts, and many others are also included in product design. After numerous brainstorming sessions, computer analysis results and mock-ups, a perfect new product design, or at least, a near-perfect new product design for a product is realized, which is beautiful, practical, functional, and most importantly, the one that facilitates economical mass-manufacturing.

Developing an efficient new product design is indeed an overwhelming task, and it might be impossible for inventors to develop such efficient designs on their own. Fortunately, there are professional product design companies, like the GID Development Corporation, that specifically deal with creating sensible new product designs and helping inventors develop successful new products at economical costs.

GID Development Corporation, an eminent new product design company in California, USA, has the experience, knowledge, tools and a team that help inventors with constructive product designs for their new product ideas. Utilizing cutting-edge technologies, like 3D EXPERIENCE Platform from Dassault Systèmes, which includes SOLIDWORKS, CATIA V6, and other apps, and their decades of experience, the veterans at GID Development Corporation create definitive product designs that are neat and functional as well as feasible and economical to mass-manufacture. Whether it is creating an efficient product design for electromechanical products, medical device products, products with imbedded software, products with electronics, or any other generic or special-purpose products, GID Development Corporation will “Get It Done!”

Some of the product design principles that GID Development Corporation follows include:

  1. Derive visually-appealing product design that is error-proof to assemble and easy to mass-manufacture with shortened product development cycle time
    • Determine and select cost-effective material(s) and production process
    • Attain a knowledge base of tooling requirements
    • Develop efficient production tooling
  2. Create a modular product design with minimized parts count
  3. Design parts with self-locating features
  4. Design parts with self-fastening features
  5. Emphasize “Top-Down” assemblies
  6. Design for a base part to locate other components
  7. Design for component symmetry for insertion

Adhering to all the above product design principles, and other ubiquitous as well as unique design principles, GID Development Corporation creates exceptional new product designs, which facilitate economical mass-manufacturing.

Along with new product design, GID Development Corporation also helps inventors with new product development, product prototype development, product prototype testing, product pre-tooling development, product mass-manufacturing, product branding, product distribution and many other product fulfillment services.
