SLIMDESIGN’s expertise covers the entire development process, we love to solve a difficult challenge! Explore our service options below. 

Start-up Support

 
We support startups through free templates and tools. We can help to convince investors by providing insightful information, create visualizations and prototypes. We are not for everyone, we only accept clients if we can truly add value. Want to know our insights to your project?

Design & Innovation

 
Innovation is key for any business which wants to stay ahead of its competitors. When we cooperate, we see our self as part of your team. We provide our product development knowledge, expertise and network to make your project a success.

R & D Support

 
We know how bureaucracy and protocol can kill corporate innovation. We provide a lean and start-up orientated approach by supporting your internal team or work independently. From idea to cosmetic + functional prototypes in 3 months.

Free Design Consultation

 
We offer a free design consult in which we will discuss your project specifics, the possible routes you can take to get this product to market, and the obstacles to avoid.

      

 

The process only matters when it delivers the desired results

The SLIMDESIGN Framework

 

At SLIMDESIGN we have developed an integrated, lean, development process that allows design, mechanical and electrical engineering to be seamlessly interwoven. By working with a dedicated project team, we can be more efficient, flexible, and faster than traditional methods.

 Strategy & Insights

 

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 create added value as part of our strategy analyses.

Specification

 

The product specifications are determined based on product requirements, strategy, and insights. These specifications include functionality, technical and component requirements, cost price calculations, and validation methods. This will give you and us detailed insight in the project road ahead, ensuring we get the desired results the fastest way possible.

Conceptualization

 

We create designs that complement the product’s function, are minimalistic, and excel in the detailing and quality. During this phase, a broad spectrum of possible design solutions will be generated through an iterative process of brainstorms and sketches. With our iterative design methodology, the best solutions will be translated into possible concepts and prototypes. In the course of the whole design process, we make sure to work with realistic volumes of all the internal components, making the transition to the final design as smooth as possible.

Engineering

 

We strive for simplicity in our design and engineering. We analyse and prioritise the product requirements in order to establish a development direction. We use our creativity, expertise and experience to generate different mechanical solutions. The most promising directions are prototyped and tested. We keep making different variations until we find the optimum between form, function, cost price, production and assembly.

Implementation

 

In the final stage of the product development process we ensure the design is ready for mass production. With a broad network of possible suppliers we have the knowledge to match the design with the most suitable production partner. We manage the tooling and validate the part samples. Simultaneously we support the certification process. When production has started, the quality of the products is ensured by a combination of quality assurance management and quality control during and after production.
