Our customer was developing a competitive product for pediatrics high flow oxygen . We Listened to the customer. They requested a mechanical design and several industrial design concepts with appealing schemes for the device, cartridge, and cartridge interface. We were asked to minimize to overall envelope of the product. Also, we needed to ensure the concepts achieved all function an manufacturing targets.
Working with the customer many design concepts were quickly modeled around a developing electromechanical system. The concepts were provided with an appropriate level of detail to demonstrate the common and unique attributes of each idea (i.e. physical envelope of the product). After the design concepts were completed a Goto-meeting was conducted with the stakeholder to review the design. We were prepared with a PowerPoint presentation identifying the differences and perceived pros and cons. During the meeting the actual models were on screen and manipulated as required to facilitate understanding by the review team.
Our deliverable were mature and accurate solid models that enabled a strong physical understanding of how the product would eventually look. The review enable the reviewing team to identify many key user interface decisions that had to be made. The customer was satisfied that the results enabled the technical team to engage their marketing representative to make some key product positioning and feature decisions.
Study #2 Design-Management
Orbital Welding Power Supply/Controller
Our client, who makes welding systems, had encountered some unexpected internal circumstances that required outsourcing. We listened to the customer. They needed an immediate project start. The product needed to be an exciting industrial design. The solution had to meet a material and labor cost requirement. We had to consider the human features of the rugged welding environment. They wanted a complete mechanical system design, clean models, and completed drawings and BOM’s in the customer’s format.
Working with the customer from a conceptual renderings, actual hardware, and 2D sketches an exciting 3D design was developed. TriAxial worked very close with the project manager. Though most of the work as done we made at least four visits to the site in San Fernando for design reviews and when the project demanded face-to-face. The design was completed in weeks with deliverables prepared and delivered within the schedule. TriAxial introducing ARC Products to the rapid prototyping SLS process and over mold design. In addition we introduced and facilitated an excellent rapid prototype supplier.
Our deliverable was a design was embraced by the customer base. It is considered the most exciting new product in the industry. The customer was thrilled by TriAxial’s design skills, speed, attention to details, and new ideas. This led to contracts on future products.
