We Apply Design Thinking to Solve Complex Problems

Our tried and tested process asks all the right questions, to deliver all the right solutions. Most times we say ‘Yes!’, but we aren’t afraid to say ‘No’ either. Our clients seem to like that about us. Our approach to the design process is always through the lens of a finished product, no shortcuts taken here!

Define

How well do you know your market? How well do you know your customers? Let us help you find out. At Produktworks, we use our successful research process to discover (and uncover) true customer needs and how it may impact your product. But raw data is not very useful. We take our research findings and develop a road map for you that will drive the decision making steps, clarify your product strategy and optimize the design and development process.

Develop

We specialize in high value and high level creative services. We provide design and engineering solutions, advanced conceptual development and product architecture. We excel at finding solid, reliable solutions to complex design and engineering problems. Have a particularly vexing problem you need help with? Give us a call!

Validate

Validating our design and engineering is an essential part of our process. Design validation ensures that the products we develop will function as expected. We build prototypes, carry out design and engineering analyses, and run virtual simulations with Finite Element Analysis (FEA). We break things now, so they don’t in production.

Deliver

We want to ensure that your product is engineered for ease of use, cost optimized and manufacturable. Our staff have developed products for many technology companies, from forward-thinking start-ups to Fortune 500 companies, so we understand the different challenges you may face. We want to help you launch your product by delivering solutions that ease the process. After all, your success equals our success.

What We Bring to the Table

Highly technical engineers who love design. Highly creative designers who (mostly!) love engineering. A highly skilled team who deliver great results to our clients.

Research

We thrive on solving problems. Clients approach us because we methodically analyze their product development issues and apply our design and engineering research to solve them. We investigate implementation of emerging technology, tackle growth and innovation issues within your company, create advanced concepts and develop product architecture for future product lines. We will work with you to understand your challenges and devise and execute a plan that will put you back on the right track.

Prototyping

We utilize all forms of rapid prototyping to best to demonstrate design intent and validate the engineering; from 3D-printing, to machined and cast urethane parts. We build minimally-viable products (MVP), Design Validation Testing (DVT and Engineering Validation (EVT) prototypes that are tested to ensure we stay true to the clients' vision for their products. Our prototypes are thoughtfully designed, informed by manufacturability and the assembly processes, so that you can get to production quickly when the time is right.

Production

Clients have come to us because they had pressing production issues that needed immediate attention. Occasionally, their manufacturing partners may hit a bump that is causing a bottleneck in the production process. We evaluate the challenges, review off-tool parts and suggest either design or process improvements that will keep production moving. We want your manufacturing partner to come out a hero.

- Production Sourcing (Domestic & Overseas)
- Vendor Qualification
- Part Sample Evaluation
- Process Improvement
- Cost Optimization
- Design-For-Manufacturability (DFM)
- Certification Process Support (UL/FCC/IP)
