'Right the First Time' Guarantee
Fit and Function are guaranteed already for the first functional prototype for all the products designed and developed by DESIGNLORE™. more... →
By following our well established development process and Traditional Engineering Principles, and implementing various strategies and techniques, we are able to quickly and efficiently develop fully functional products within a given budget and time constraints. We so strongly believe in our process, experience and skills that we guarantee that the first functional prototype for all products designed and developed by DESIGNLORE will meet all Fit and Function requirements.
Please contact DESIGNLORE™ for more information about possible guaranties for your project.
We are always on the watch for the NEW and INNOVATIVE solutions. more... →
Starting with your idea, innovation or technical requirements we are always on the watch for new and innovative solutions for your product. We balance our creative, 'Out of the Box" thinking with design constraints and product targets by strictly implementing design procedures and ensuring that the best possible product is developed economically and in the shortest possible time.
While design ideas may be wild and innovative, the whole product development process is strict and controlled. As soon as the first concepts or innovative ideas are accepted, further product development is performed following established engineering routines, addressing all issues from function to cost. We focus on every detail continuously generating new ideas and improvements, searching for the inventions or innovations that will add value to your end product.
Using a High-End CAD/CAE software we perform a number of tests and analyses prior to making real physical prototypes. We refer to this process as a 'Virtual Prototyping' and the CAD models developed with high accuracy and detail 'Virtual Prototypes' more... →
Taking advantage of the top of the line design and engineering 3D software packages, we create mathematical models and 3D parametric models instead of physical prototypes and models. Regarding these 3D models as virtual prototypes, we perform a number of virtual checks and computer aided tests to ensure good quality designs during the entire product development cycle.
These constantly modified parametric models reach a high level of fidelity and accuracy before the end of the development stage, when they are used as the main source of information for physical prototypes and production.
Although virtual prototypes are modelled at "ready for production" level, it is always recommended to build a physical prototype for the final tests, particularly for the parts which require expensive tooling. By building only a limited number of actual prototypes we significantly reduce the development time and associated costs. (For rush projects we offer a quick verification and model check using Rapid Prototypes.)
Low cost & high quality fully functional prototypes produced in China & assembled here. more... →
Taking advantage of our high quality designs, knowledge of various manufacturing processes as well as long term established business relationships with number of suppliers in Asia, we select the best prototyping processes and suppliers ultimately producing very affordable prototypes. Also all of our prototypes are assembled and verified in house offering very fast turn around times. .
Low cost prototyping allow us to sometimes offer FREE prototypes to our clients. (see Rebates Page →)
On-Time Delivery Guarantee
For time sensitive projects we prepare aggressive project plans and implement Critical Path planning techniques ensuring that the delivery strictly follows the agreed upon dates and milestones. more... →
For many clients the introduction of a product to the market is critical. Whether they need to introduce their product at a trade show, present their idea to the board or investors, or have some other deadlines, we prepare adequate project plan and schedules to meet (if reasonably possible) their target dates. Additionally, we implement various strategies to remove any potential risks, deal with the uncertainties and variables during the project
We also plan for additional design time outside regular hours, if required.
Please contact DESIGNLORE™ for more information and to check if we can do what appears impossible.
Profit Percentage (Markup) Increased by 'Cost Reduction with Original Design™
Our High Quality Design and Engineering services significantly improve client's ROI and Profits via Costs Reduction with Original Design.
The impact of the High Quality Design and Engineering on the actual profits is often taken lightly. While in one hand well designed products receive better market acceptance on the other hand the Profits grow exponentially with both Part and Production / Assembly Cost Reduction / Savings. more... →
To illustrate: imagine the product that costs $ 100 to produce and that is sold for $ 200 dollars. (Profit $ 100). Clearly the Profit percentage (Markup) is 100% . But if, for example, the same product is produced for only 20 % less, the actual profit percentage increase is not 20% more but whole 50 % more. [ ($200-$80)/$80= 1.5 or 150%], while the selling price is not changed. Bigger cost savings clearly render exponential larger markups and profit margins as shown on the chart. Naturally, the higher starting markup you have set for your product the exponential growth is even more progressive (vertically stretched).
In the same manner products designed poorly (with negative cost reduction) will 'eat' your profits following the similar exponential trend and possibly prevent your business from having sustainable growth.
For years inventors and startups were hoping to introduce a product to the market as soon as possible and as and as affordably as possible; with the plan to address the cost reduction issues once the product starts generating sales. While this approach has its merits, the biggest problem is that poorly designed and expensive to produce products NEVER start generating sales and profits. The opportunity for Cost Reduction later never presents itself and ultimately the initial investments are wasted. This may be the most important reason why product design is not only 'few-good-looking' images but must be engineered by experts from the very start to the end.
