Product development, especially for a budding inventor, can certainly be a daunting task. It is very important that you, as an inventor, get in touch with the right engineers in order to breathe life to your product. However, oftentimes, it can be very confusing what kind of engineers you require in order to develop your revolutionary product.
Normally, it will be in your best interest to approach a good product development company that has multiple engineers with different skill sets on board. The reason for this is that your breakthrough product could be anything – an electromechanical product, a product with electronics, medical device product, or a product with imbedded software. Now, developing such products will require different engineers and not just one kind of engineers.
Here are some of the common engineers whom you should be able to find in a good product development company that you may decide to hire.
If your potential product needs a custom plastic case, then industrial engineers are the ones who will help. Most inventors delay taking the assistance of an industrial engineer because they somehow work out with a stock, off-the-shelf case for their products. Unfortunately, such products, in most cases, fail to make an impact because they lack aesthetics and ergonomics. Off-the-shelf cases neither provide aesthetics, nor ergonomics. They are just plain old cases.
Industrial engineers can help with the ideal product design. Whether your product is too complex mechanically or too elaborate electronically, they can help create a suitable case for your product, which has excellent aesthetics and ergonomics.
If your product is too simple, mechanically or electronically, then you can get the case designed by a 3D modeler. Using a computer-aided industrial design software application, like Dassault Systèmes’ CATIA, a 3D modeler can help create detailed designs of a case, for your product. You can then take these detailed designs to a good plastic product manufacturer who can help bulk manufacture the product cases.
If you are developing a product with electronics, electromechanical product, or a product with imbedded software, you will need the assistance of good electrical engineers. Electrical engineering is a broad field; hence, it will be a good idea to go to a product development company that has several electrical engineers with different skill sets. An electrical engineer, who can work on a high-voltage system cannot work on portable devices! Similarly, an electrical engineer, who can design schematics and PCB layouts for products with imbedded software will have difficulty programming a microcontroller for those products; it actually requires a software engineer with specialization in electronics to program a microcontroller for products with imbedded software.
Some electrical engineers specialize in analog design while others specialize in digital design. You might be able to find engineers specializing in multiple disciplines, but such professionals are very rare! Therefore, get in touch with a good product development company that has on board a handful of electrical engineers with specialization in different electrical engineering disciplines.
If your product has moving parts, mechanical engineers can help you design and develop that product. Similar to electrical engineering, mechanical engineering is a broad field. In fact, it is the broadest field of engineering. Mechanical engineering involves the application of mechanics, material science, kinematics, structural analysis, and thermodynamics to name a few. No single mechanical engineer has the skills to apply all these core concepts. For that reason, hire a product development company that has several mechanical engineers on board.
Aside from these, there are biomedical engineers who help with the design and development of medical device products, biomechanics engineers who help with the design and development of sports products, manufacturing engineers who help with the design and development of machines, tools and equipment, power engineers who help with the design and development of high-voltage power systems, and many more.
With it comes to new product development, it is always a good idea to go to an eminent product development company that has on board a good team of engineers having specialization in different engineering fields.
