We do not follow the standard design process. Over the years we have cultivated an integrated, lean, development method where design, mechanical and electrical engineering are seamlessly interwoven. It is more efficient, flexible and faster than traditional methods.
Please select one of the different project types, to get insight into our development process.
The activities and deliverables are fine-tuned to the specific needs of the project and client.
The foundation of every great product is a strong design strategy. Here at SLIMDESIGN we analyze and research competitors, markets, use case scenarios, customer journeys, stakeholders, trends and evolutions, and added value as part of our strategy analyses.
With our competitor analysis report we can generate discussions about important aspects of the new product and help to determine its USP’s. Mapping the competitors and pinpointing the client’s ambition within this field, helps to clarify the project scope.
This analysis helps to point out the various interests of all possible stakeholders. It generates insights into possible complementary partners and new business models.
All developments tend to follow a similar evolutionary process. Pinpointing the trends in this process helps to predict what the next generation of products might be.
Use Case Analyses
We visualize the different use cases and environments to demonstrate a complete overview of the product interaction. We use this to find new opportunities that can create added value.
During its lifetime, a product goes through numerous phases and is used in different ways. Visualizing each phase beforehand, helps potential customers to participate in discussions surrounding a product’s life-cycle.
Functional Trend Analysis
While developing new products there are always certain ‘problems’ which tend to arise time and again. We have identified a dozen of these problem topics and actively keep track of the latest related trends, regulations and new component availability.
We observe users interacting with existing products as well as with our working prototypes. We generate ideas and concepts and invite the user panel to give their feedback and vision. Brainstorm sessions help inspire participants to come up with new related ideas.
