How To Succeed In Hardware Development?
Something to consider
When it comes to setting a schedule for developing products, some companies might set expectations that are too high or even unachievable. Unfortunately, there is a number of reasons why some projects are never turned into reality.
From our practical experience of working with hardware and software companies, we have come up with the universal principles and some basic steps that will help you to build the right product.
The product development usually consists of six stages, each has its specific goals and tasks, our services are applied as required at every stage of the process. At each stage there is an opportunity to assess the achievements, existing risks and possible outcomes anterior to proceeding to the next step.Add paragraph text here.
1. Get your requirements ready
This step is the foundation of the product development. It is of utmost importance for you to present a detailed list of requirements to us. What you need is a requirements document – something that you present when you submit a request for proposal (RFP). To make sure the final result meets your expectations, please, list your requirements in a very precise way.
2. Requirement confirmation
After receiving your requirements, our team will carefully analyze them to present the solutions for the case in the form of requirement confirmation. In Pozible.Tech we have a special window ( service staff ) for you when it comes to the requirement confirmation, and also we provide the professional opinion to assist you with the requirement.
3. The initial design
Even the most complex and rigorous mechanism designs start with sketch drawing.The main focus at this stage is on determining product specifications, the concept, minimizing any possible risks and answering vital questions related to the product's form, function, performance, cost and architecture.
4. Sketches Rendering (3D) and confirmation
CAD 3D modeling allows us to go from concept to prototype, thus it enables us to evaluate the product’s structure in details.
5.Bench model construction and optimization
To make sure the visual design of the final product meets your requirements, the production of a mockup (bench model) is very important. Once the external design is confirmed we can pass over to the internal structure of the product.
Schematic design and confirmation
This stage is aimed at delivering a fully defined, ‘production ready’ solution. All the tasks and operations at this phase serve to verify the feasibility of the final product. The schematic diagram shows how all the components connect together. Creating the circuit diagram is the core step in designing electronics.
Hardware and Software Development
Once the schematic is done, the actual hardware - the physical components of the final product as well as the software - the functional specifications of the product can be generated by our experts.
Prototype production and confirmation
The key objectives of this step are designing and production of a functional prototype. Producing a functional prototype is the most direct and effective way to identify defects of the designed products.
Mould Design and Mould Testing
To capture the intent of the concept clearly, it is very important to make sure the design of the mould is done carefully and that it’s produced according to the high-quality standards. Your project is unique. That is why we apply scientific principles and years of moulding experience to do it well
Final Sample Testing and Confirmation
At this stage the primary goal is to verify and fine-tune prototypes, obtain necessary formal approvals and documentation required for volume manufacture.
Pilot production/New Product Introduction
The «almost production stage». In order to check whether the new product is suitable for full-scale production, a relatively small quantity of the new items is produced at the factory to validate the manufacturing process.This phase also includes user testing - an effective means to receive feedbacks and optimize the customer experience before launching the new product on the market. This helps to establish whether the product’s quality is viable or if it still needs improvements.
Having had success in the Pilot deployment and the organization as a whole (all the previous stages), the environment can be moved into production.Our main aim at this stage is to provide support to the customer during volume manufacture ramp-up: sourcing and kitting of components and ongoing production.
