and foremost, design is behind the companys success. In fact, our
company is primarily composed of designers and engineers who recognize
the need to work in accordance with an integrated approach. We rely on
diverse contributions to ensure commercial success.
With regard to our projects, we carry out many different types of tasks
that are briefly described below, and have a common objective: the commercial
success of a product.
- Market studies:
In order to identify and assess competitive products, we examine statistical
data for estimating the size of the potential market. We consult experts
in the sales field for the target market. Focus groups made up of consumers
are consulted to forecast market reactions.
- Patent study: We
assess the patent potential of all new products we develop. A patent
ensures the exclusive marketing of the product. We also verify which
concepts are currently patented and must not be violated, and those
that are public property and hence, accessible to anyone, including
- Development of
product specifications: What are the products performance criteria?
Here, we define the requirements with respect to production, assembly,
installation and use of the product, as well as registration and certification
requirements. It is necessary to ensure that the products assembly
matches the processes available from our industrial partners.
- Preparation of
the development, production and marketing schedule: It is critical to
respect the project schedule. The delivery deadlines for a new product
must be competitive, and the corrections made during production must
be minimal. These are the key factors that underlie the investments
- Technical design
and development of the product: The products compliance to the
features sought by the consumer is fundamental. The same is true with
regard to the products being adapted to all conditions and requirements
relating to equipment, production, storage, shipping and certification.
- Simulation and
modeling: Recent technological tools allow us to partially simulate
several of a products properties. Using visual or virtual simulations,
we can anticipate and evaluate a products visual aspect, technical
performance and profitability.
- Production of
visual or operational mock-ups, and prototypes: Three-dimensional partial
or complete simulations allow us to measure emotions and technical performances,
and to resolve specific problems.
- Evaluation and
qualification of materials and sub-contractors: We select materials
and processes that are most appropriate for manufacturing the product.
We forge partnerships with suppliers to guarantee an adequate supply
within the desired timeframe.
- Execution of technical
tests: We verify the performance of the product and its conformity to
registration and certification standards applicable to the targeted
- Cost analysis
and alternative production solutions: We evaluate the return time on
our investment according to different production volume scenarios and
different production methods.
- Drafting of calls
for tenders and sub-contracting agreements: We ensure that the products
we receive will conform to our specifications, and that critical schedules
will be respected.
- Development of
methods and procedures: A new product sometimes requires a production
company to modify or restructure its operations. The assembly methods
and work stations are normally the elements most affected. We develop
the new methods and procedures that are required.
- Development of
quality and conformity standards: In order to reduce waste, we oversee
the quality of supplies and the critical transformation steps in the
products production process. More especially, we spare no effort
to prevent returns!
The ultimate step during which all simulations and modeling operations
become reality. We test all production steps and fully optimize the
