TERA Sensor Engineering team also offers a full product development solution. Trust skilled and experienced professionals to develop the perfect product and solution for your needs.
Our approach can be explained in 5 main steps as follow :
- 1/ Product Conception Intelligence and Market Strategy: from Idea to Concept:
- Ideation: Collaborate with the client to generate ideas for the new product. Brainstorm features, usages, market needs and design concepts.
- Market Research: Analyze the target market, including customer needs, preferences, and competition. Identify market gaps and opportunities.
- Feasibility: Evaluate the technical, financial, and resource feasibility of the project. Determine if the project aligns with market needs.
- Project Scope: Define the project’s scope, objectives, and constraints. Create a project plan with timelines and milestones.
- 2/ Design and Development: from concept to prototype
- Concept Design: Create initial design concepts, including sketches, drawings, and prototypes. Review these concepts with the client for feedback and approval.
- Product Design: Develop comprehensive engineering drawings, 3D models, and specifications. Specify materials, components, and manufacturing processes.
- Electrical Design : we connect the sensors in local or within your Information System, Apps or Cloud
- Prototyping: Build physical prototypes or digital mock-ups to test and refine the design. Iterate based on testing and client feedback.
- Regulatory Compliance: Ensure the design complies with industry standards, safety regulations, and any applicable certifications.
- 3/ Testing and Validation:
- Functional Testing: Conduct rigorous testing to ensure the product functions as intended. Identify and address any performance or functionality issues.
- Quality Assurance: Implement quality control processes to maintain product quality throughout the development phase.
- User Testing: Involve potential users or clients in usability testing to gather feedback on user experience and make necessary improvements.
- Validation: Confirm that the product meets the initial requirements and objectives set by the client.
- Certification management within our sensor quality equipments and dedicated labs (CE, FCC, UL, TuV….)
- 4/ Production and Manufacturing: from prototype to production
- Manufacturability: Optimize the design for manufacturing, considering production methods, cost efficiency, and scalability.
- Supplier Selection: Identify and collaborate with suppliers for components and materials. Negotiate contracts and agreements.
- Production Setup: Plan production schedules, tooling, and assembly processes. Oversee manufacturing to ensure product consistency and quality.
- Quality Control: Implement quality control measures during manufacturing to identify and rectify defects.
- 5/ Launch and Post-Launch Support:
- Product Launch: Prepare for the product launch, including marketing strategies, distribution, and sales efforts.
- Documentation: Create user manuals, technical documentation, and support materials.
- Customer Support: Provide customer support to address inquiries, issues, and warranty claims.
- Continuous Improvement: Gather post-launch feedback and data to make product enhancements and plan for future iterations.
Throughout these stages, effective communication with the client is critical, a dedicated project manager as a central point of contact is always available with regular updates, milestone reviews, and client feedback integrated into the design and development process. This client-centric approach ensures that the final product aligns with the client’s vision and requirements.
