As a San Diego business developing a new product for the first time, partnering with a quality prototype development service is going to be an essential factor in the success of the venture.
A poor choice in the available prototype development companies can result in cost overruns, errors in the design, problems with the prototype and delays in moving from design to completed prototype. To avoid these issues, taking the time to interview each prospective San Deigo product design and development company will help you in finding the best provider.
What Experience Do You Have?
When discussing experience with prototype development companies, focus on both industry experience as well as general years in the business. This will give you a good idea of the scope of work the company has done in the past and how that will match your prototype development requirements.
What Services Are Offered?
Some prototype development companies work only from plans while others will be able to work with your in-house team on the design phase of the project. For many businesses, involving the prototype developer in on the design phase assists in speeding up the process and avoiding costly revisions once the engineering team reviews the plans.
Can You Complete Analysis?
Testing, analysis, and simulation of the prototype using computer models is an effective and very cost-efficient option in the prototype development process. There will be different simulations and analysis used based on the type of product.
Ask about analysis and testing services and why these are the best for the product in development.
Can You Explain the Process?
While this may seem like a very general question, not all prototype design and development companies will have the same process. Some will outsource most or all work while others may have a greater in-house capacity.
By having an idea of how the company will handle your project, and how you will interact with their team, you can more easily choose a company that is right for the project.
