Analysis & Planning
A new idea, consumer insights, market research, new technology or inventions: these components often form the basis for a new product. We analyse all relevant input and carefully define the project’s boundary conditions, its starting points and the product specifications, or the specified product roadmap. Moreover, we will set up a project schedule in close consultancy with you; simple or complex. Either way, all stages of development are in good hands, under one roof.
Technology & Market Research
We are mindful of the latest technical innovations in a variety of professions. We will research your particular market and the facilities within your company, and will look far beyond. Taking into consideration all these aspects, we will induce innovations. We connect the dots through research, so that the technology, materials and production methods can construct new ideas.
Every new idea starts out with a sketch and every good design starts out with an inspiring range of sketch proposals. We execute research where it is most needed, for example with sketch models and proof of principles. This is what makes us distinctive. During this phase we meet with our clients on a regular basis, hoping to promote interaction and to collect feedback; freedom of choice and the ability to assess chances and threats are the conditions of success.
Engineering & Prototyping
The first stage of engineering is characterized by defining the raw structure and the main components of the concept. Decisions are made to achieve our goal in the best and most (cost) effective way. In-house model making, prototyping and 3D printing is a vital element of our working process. Early stage investigation of actual proportions and crucial mechanical solutions is our way to reduce the risk of delay or surprises to the absolute minimum. In the end we deliver all 3D CAD data for the manufacturing of your first prototype or first out of tools.
Testing & Optimizing
Evaluation of prototypes and first out of tools will be shared with production partners in order to meet the highest possible quality standards. We advise extensive testing and reviewing by end users, after which we will set up an optimization report and carry out an updated package of drawings. Again, a distinctive and risk avoiding service Promea offers is to physically iterate prototypes. This way, we can safely look forward to second out of tools or first production runs. Ultimately, that is what you want!
Final Production Data
We wish to deliver the project with a complete package of production data following the latest updates. This will secure full independency and a warranty for quality when it comes to quotation requests and outsourcing to third parties.
