Achievements and Results

-   Finalized product design

-   Developed entire assembly process

 

The Problem

A recent client in the industrial hygiene industry requested help in the final stages of launching a new product. The client's product development team consisted of chemists and marketing professionals, but no engineers, which had caused issues. The launch date was in four months, set for a trade show, but the product at that point consisted of a completed chemical design and industrial design sketches.

 

The Solution

This consultant was hired and completed several tasks in order to launch the product on time. First, he managed a third-party mechanical design firm to complete the  mechanical designs on three plastic components. The material selection was finalized.

Second, he located and evaluated tooling suppliers, as well as sourced the injection molds to prepare the production process.

The design concepts for the fabric component of the product were finalized, and the expert selected a vendor and worked collaboratively to complete the design, in order to get production going on time.

The expert developed the final mechanical assembly processes; to do this, he procured heat staking and ultrasonic welding tooling. The expert’s quick work allowed the product to be completed in time for the launch at the trade show.

After the show, the expert continued to work with the client. Together they reduced the client’s packaging labor by 60% through new sealing and marking equipment. In addition, they improved the client’s business processes, by developing an engineering and planning system through QuickBooks Enterprise.

 

Benefits Realized

The expert was able to get the client’s product launched in time for the debut at a trade show. Designs were finalized, assembly processes were conceptualized and created and run successfully. In addition, the expert reduced packaging labor, thus saving the company money, and helped develop new business practices through software.
