The Engineering Curmudgeon - Blog
innovation always starts with systematic research and an understanding
of market needs. Innovative Thermal Solutions prefers to initiate
projects in consultation with our clients to explore what they want to
achieve from a business standpoint. Our marketing professionals can
help you start with a firm foundation for a new product or service. We
are experienced in methods and tools, as well as history, industry
developments and customer behaviors in target market segments.
It may surprise you to learn that the cost of discovery and definition is remarkably small, usually just 5 to 15 percent of the total cost of the product development effort. It's money well spent and eventually pays for itself in reduced levels of engineering and testing. For us to maximize our contribution and fulfill our core promise of project speed and accuracy, we must work together to formulate the product strategy and specifications while developing a project plan to achieve those goals.
Proof of Concept
We'll show you how our solution works … and why. Fully staffed and equipped workshops are available to produce proof of concepts and prototypes of your product, allowing you and your customers to fully comprehend the product, its value and promise. Using our tools, we can reduce the total development time and expose critical design issues early in the cycle. Innovative Thermal Solutions has a wealth of experience in this process for many types of mechanical and thermal systems and projects.
As you prepare to utilize proof of concepts and prototypes to validate a product concept, a test plan is critical for maintaining a timetable and budget. Another key factor is access to the equipment necessary. Our resources are unrivaled.
Our labs are certified to perform internationally recognized agency tests, and we continue to expand evaluation services into all areas of electrical, food, industrial and life science safety. Finally, Innovative Thermal Solutions remains at its heart a client-driven organization. Because of this, we have an accommodating perspective on customized proof of concept. From apparatus and materials to data analysis and field trial market research, we can apply a range of special skills.
Design Development and Verification
We know how to accelerate your rate of innovation, and we use more than rapid computational and simulation techniques to do so. Innovative Thermal Solutions employs an integrated approach involving industrial design, mechanical and thermal analysis, materials selection, electrical systems and controls. Our tools, personnel and experience provide for rapid and accurate component and system engineering. Our affiliates include controls engineers with experience ranging from breadboard layout to PLC programming to design and fully documented specification of embedded controllers. Our materials expertise includes metals, plastics, fibers, insulation, adhesives, coatings and treatments.
Our team's broad application knowledge and inside relationships with leading equipment manufacturers afford Innovative Thermal Solutions a perspective helpful in both cost reduction and performance optimization. We provide concurrent design and modeling throughout product development by supporting popular 2-D and 3-D CAD platforms. Our designers work with all facets of the system: structural, surfaces, piping, electrical, assembly, motion and tooling.
Process Development and Verification
No matter how
well a product design performs, it isn’t a good design if it
can’t be manufactured with high quality in a cost effective
process. Manufacturing processes must be selected during product design
and development. Any manufacturing process development required should
be identified early in the project, assuring compatibility between
design requirements, design specifications, and manufacturing
capabilities. Whether it is called concurrent engineering, simultaneous
engineering, or as we prefer just engineering, it is imperative to the
success of the product that design engineering and manufacturing
engineering work closely together during the Design Development and
Process Development phases. Innovative Thermal Solutions has extensive
experience managing projects and developing products in a collaborative
Product Launch and Validation
In a competitive, global marketplace, launching a new product successfully takes an extraordinary effort. We can help. The manufacturing launch of new products can be simple - as with product extensions - and it can be complex. We can assist in evaluation and planning for the launch and put consultants on site for process piloting and production implementation.
with a commercial launch, we offer product positioning and pricing
services. We can extend revenue streams by helping clients determine a
product's life cycle and future growth. Innovative Thermal Solutions
can also assist in early customer feedback, working with early adopters
to fine tune market acceptance and ensure product validation.
