Starting with “our understanding of your problem” we work closely together with your organisation. From first focus and idea through to development and start up of production.
• Analysis of the customers project, incl. background, objectives, deliverables timing, etc.<br /> • Agreement on our role in the project; where does Verhoeven Ontwerpburo has real added value<br /> • Understanding of the customers problem and how we can help<br /> • Definition on what on what is in scope and what is out of scope
Definition of the problem<br /> Find inspiration and Generate ideas/solutions<br /> Selection of ideas and checking if the idea solves the development challenge<br /> Fast prototyping and global testing<br /> Conclusions and Go / no go
Definition of key product requirements (initial product specification)<br /> Turning the concept into a 3D (technical) design<br /> Feasibility checks on important functionalities<br /> Finalisation of the technical concept<br /> Preparation of high end mock ups and prototypes (Functional Mock ups)<br /> Detailed functional testing on lab scale and with end users<br /> Taking the key learnings and agree on how/what to improve
Updated product specification<br /> Bring the design to its final level (based on FuMo results)<br /> Apply the principles of design for manufacturing and assembly<br /> Perform simulations on critical product functionalities (eg. FEA’s, etc.)<br /> Perform Design FMEA and definition of mitigation actions
Updated product specification and validation program<br /> Updated 3D CAD model including mitigations from Design FMEA<br /> Perform FEA’s, tolerance studies, mold flows, etc.<br /> Preparation of 2D/3D files for quotations<br /> Guide/support pilot tool making and validation of parts and assemblies<br /> Review parts, assemblies until full validation<br /> Perform Design FMEA and definition of mitigation actions
Updated product specification and validation program<br /> Support the tender process to select suppliers<br /> Updated 2D/3D files, based on outcome of pilot manufacturing (and design FMEA)<br /> Guide/support production tool making and adjustments (FOT, SOT, etc.)<br /> Review parts, assemblies until full validation<br /> Release of 2D/3D files
