Innovative products and tech

It is becoming increasingly obvious that, in the knowledge-based economy of our times, innovation is one of the most important keys to business success. The rapid change of technological breakthroughs is resulting in driving companies toward continuous innovation. But innovation is not something that just happens on its own. It requires special knowledge and expertise, work practices and methodologies that are little known. Generating new ideas is difficult enough, but then making these ideas beacome a reality is next to impossible without having a dedicated research and development department. This is where we come in. We will listen to your problems and thoughts and we will come up with a viable plan on solving your problem. Its that simple.

IDEA GENERATION

PLANNING STAGE

PRODUCT PROTOTYPING

ALPHA PRODUCTION


1

Idea Generation Stage

This stage is the origin of the research/development process. Ideas of the product may originate from customers’ responses collected by the sales department, the market trend surveyed by the planning department, or the strategic command of the top management. All of these factors are merely the conceptual description of a new product. This stage focuses on describing the product's idea as clearly as possible. Formal written descriptions and the business specifications must be prepared to evaluate the feasibility of the following three aspects:

  • 1. Technological feasibility: such as engineering human resources, production equipment, inspection capability, etc.
  • 2. Marketing feasibility: such as strategies of the competitors, market potentiality, and product positioning.
  • 3. Synthetic feasibility: such as cost estimation and return on investment analysis.

Planning Stage

Once a decision is made, the project team is organized to perform the design tasks. The project leader ensures that the product is completed with high quality, on schedule, and at low cost. In this stage, the business specifications are converted into manufacturable engineering specifications and the quality function deployment (QFD) can be used to assist the transformation. A master schedule is established for each project. Schedule of the contractual design project should include the customer’s requirements and due date. The engineering specifications and design schedule are carefully reviewed to ensure that the design objective can be achieved. Information that is collated include's enforcing the design function and reducing the research/development risk. Previous design project and customers’ records are two of the useful references.

Product Prototyping Stage

The converted engineering specifications are the quality level that is accomplished in the design stage. The major tasks of this stage consist of:

  • 1. Preservation of complete design records, including numerical computations, selection of components, simulation of interference between parts, and so on.
  • 2. Construction and verification of prototypes.
  • 3. Production of design output, such as bill of materials, component and assembly drawings, circuit charts, and software.
  • 4. Estimation of production cost.
  • 5. Application of patents.

Alpha Production Stage

When the design output is proven acceptable after modification, the next step is to construct the prototype and perform the alpha production. This stage aims to transfer the designed results from our R&D department to the production department. Several tasks should be completed before pilot production; therefore, a separate stage is implemented by some enterprises. The preparatory tasks include the following:

  • 1. Preparation of quality control plan, such as QC engineering table, inspection standard, and sampling.
  • 2. Preparation of test equipment.
  • 3. Design of production flow, such as layout, power, and construction works.
  • 4. Preparation of jigs and fixtures.
  • 5. Preparation of operation sheets.
  • 6. Procurement, installation, and examination of production and testing equipments.
  • 7. Determination of quantity of prototype and pilot production.
  • 8. Training of relevant personnel. When the preparatory activities are completed, the project team should call a meeting to smoothly transfer the designed results. If a separate stage is performed, a review meeting can be used to determine the right time of pilot production. The available time span of the production line and workpower must be arranged in advance; the working order can then be released.
