Prototyping and Production Consulting
production supervision is a part of the product design process, in which issues such as materials and production methods, design details, and the provision of manufacturing solutions are considered, which lead to more accurate implementation and higher quality of the product.
1. Define project and research
In this part, design brief is given to the employer and design strategies and purposes are clarified. Ekas design studio group always tries to find creative, economic and user centered solutions to make manufacturing companies’ products unique and different among other samples and products in the market. this issue is possible based on artistic experiences, technical information, human knowledge and on the other hand, creative and innovative methods. Successful sale and customers’ enthusiasm for purchasing needs accurate knowledge of customers’ needs and doing target market researches. Surveys and researches in design processes are one of the initial requirements. collected data in this step will be design and ideation criteria which will use in future phases of product design process. There are various methods which are utilized in Ekas design studio in the process of researching to achieve a proper response. Some of them are analyzing competitors’ products, surveying behavior of target groups and users and a description of the issue according to customers’ needs. Ekas design studio’s purpose in this design step is achieving complete factors to start and continue projects.
2. Designing and Ideation
Design processes are begun in an open and creative method. Ideation groups and selected final designs are reachable based on design strategies and goals in continuing the aforementioned method. A selection of design process and common ways of design processes in Ekas design studio are: Initial concepts and sketching for ideation and presenting design solutions, Combining technical and practical rules of designs with aesthetic fundamentals, Designing the family of products with consideration of hidden identities and properties, Ideation in groups based on brain storming methods, body storming and so on, Considering rules and ergonomic and anthropometric standards related to the product and work station, Consulting and accurate studying of materials and production methods to make ideas producible , Using real users in finalizing process of the product (Collaborative design), Sketching, 3D modelling and professional rendering.
3. Development and Detail Design
After determining final properties of design, we develop designs in terms of engineering design and detail design. This step includes selecting materials, determining manufacturing methods, assembling features, cost estimation and production duration. Ekas design studio’s designers are able to present products and components to customers with utilizing 3d modelling programs such as Rhinoceros and Solidworks.
Presenting and perceiving 3d visualization of products is one of the most important parts of design processes. Making models and prototypes of products provides the possibility of real and detail surveying of factors such as mechanism, form, ergonomic parameters and so on. Prototyping helps decrease cost, time and eliminate defects of design processes in every step to reach the final product.
5. Production and Consultation for Manufacturing
We change production limitations to special opportunities for your company and business. After detail designing of products, required information for manufacturing products including plan and tables of manufacturing and assembling, 3d models, codes of colors and final graphic files of products are given and presented to customers in categories and collections. Production: monitoring processes of manufacturing products is a part of a product design process in which subjects such as selecting materials and manufacturing methods, the ways of performing design details and offering manufacturing solutions in production processes are asserted. In fact, monitoring production helps to have more accurate conduction and increase product qualities.
