Product Design & Development

Bringing a complete portfolio of design, prototyping, simulation, testing, and development under one roof, our fully merged development cycle enables us to offer an optimized design control package in line with product design and development for components and assemblies.
Our design and development engineers boost your idea from concept to completion, including, in the process, the most sophisticated methods and technologies in the product and device industry. At AnsixTech, we diligently conduct reviews, hazard identification, and risk analysis throughout our documented process.
Product design and development is a complex and critical process that involves the transformation from concept to actual product. In this process, multiple factors such as market demand, technical feasibility, and user experience need to be comprehensively considered to ensure that the final product can meet the needs of users and be competitive.
First of all, market research is an important part of product design and development. Through market research, you can understand user needs and preferences, and understand market trends and competitors. This helps determine the positioning and characteristics of the product and provides guidance for subsequent design and development. Market research can be conducted through questionnaires, interviews, observations, etc. The data and information collected can help the design team better understand user needs and provide a basis for product design.
Secondly, requirements analysis is a key step in product design and development. At this stage, users’ needs need to be understood in detail and translated into product functions and features. Through communication and feedback with users, product design can be continuously optimized to ensure that the product can truly solve users’ problems. Requirements analysis can be conducted through user interviews, user stories, use case analysis, etc. Through in-depth communication with users, the design team can better understand user needs and provide guidance for product design.
Next comes conceptual design, which is the process of transforming the concept of a product into a concrete design. At this stage, you need to consider the product’s functionality, design, user interface, etc. By drawing sketches, making models, etc., you can materialize design ideas and discuss and provide feedback with team members and users. Conceptual design can be carried out through hand drawing, CAD design, 3D modeling, etc. Through continuous iteration and optimization, the product design plan is finally determined.
Then there is prototyping, by making prototypes of the product, the feasibility and user experience of the design can be verified. A prototype can be a physical model, a virtual model, or an interactive interface model. Through testing and feedback with users, problems can be discovered and fixed, and the design of the product can be further optimized. Prototyping can be carried out through 3D printing, virtual reality technology, prototype manufacturing, etc. Through interaction and testing with users, the design team can better understand user needs and provide feedback and improvement opportunities for product design.
During the testing phase, the product needs to be tested for functionality, performance, user experience, etc. Through testing, product problems and deficiencies can be discovered and improvements and repairs can be made. The goal of this stage is to ensure the quality and stability of the product to provide a good user experience. Testing can be conducted through software testing, hardware testing, user experience testing, etc. Through continuous testing and feedback, the design team can continuously improve the design and functionality of the product, and improve product quality and user satisfaction.
Product design and development is a comprehensive process that requires comprehensive consideration of market demand, technical feasibility, user experience and other factors. Through market research, demand analysis, conceptual design, prototyping, testing, manufacturing and marketing, a product concept can be transformed into an actually usable product that meets user needs and is competitive. In this process, the design team needs to cooperate with multiple departments and teams such as the marketing department, engineers, and manufacturers to improve product quality and user satisfaction through continuous innovation and improvement.

Product&Device Design Control Process
The initial phase from which Design Control begins is Design Input development and approval, which consists of device design and manufacturing processes to be moved out into the production phase.
Design control is a holistic strategy and doesn’t end with sharing the design to the production phase once the design is finalized. It also moves manufacturing processes according to the changes in the design stage or even post-production feedback. It is a continuous process to develop a usable product for a user and, for the improved product, consider revolutionary changes from usage patterns and diagnose failed products.

The product design control process refers to the process of ensuring the quality and progress of product design through a series of control measures and methods during the product design and development process. The following are the general steps of the product design control process:
Set design goals and requirements: Before product design begins, it is necessary to clarify the design goals and requirements of the product. This includes product function, performance, appearance, cost, production process and other requirements. These goals and requirements will form the basis for design control.
Develop a design plan: Develop a detailed design plan based on the design goals and requirements. The design plan includes design schedule, design stages and tasks, allocation of design resources, etc. The design plan will help the team clarify the progress and responsibilities of the design and ensure that the design proceeds as planned.
Design review: In the design process, design review is a very important control measure. Design reviews can be conducted at each design stage or at important design decision points. Through review, the rationality, compliance and feasibility of the design can be checked, problems can be discovered and solved, and the quality and implementability of the design can be ensured.
Design verification and verification: After the design is completed, design verification and verification is necessary. Design verification is to verify whether the function and performance of the design meet the requirements through simulation, experiment or calculation. Design verification can be carried out through prototype testing, simulation, experimental verification, etc. The results of design verification will determine whether design modifications and optimizations are needed.
Design change control: During the design process, demand changes, technical problems, market changes, etc. may occur, requiring design changes. Design change control is the process of ensuring the rationality and controllability of design changes. Design changes need to be reviewed and approved to ensure that the changes will not have an uncontrollable impact on product quality, schedule and cost.
Design document control: During the design process, a large number of design documents need to be generated, including design specifications, design reports, design drawings, etc. Design document control is the process of ensuring the accuracy, completeness, and traceability of design documents. Design documents need to be version controlled, reviewed, and archived for subsequent design and production use.
Design quality control: During the design process, design quality control needs to be carried out to ensure that the quality of the design meets the requirements. Design quality control includes control of design rationality, reliability, manufacturability, maintainability and other aspects. Through design quality control, design errors and defects can be reduced and product quality and reliability improved.
Design progress control: During the design process, design progress control is required to ensure that the design proceeds as planned. Design progress control includes the decomposition of design tasks, monitoring and adjustment of progress, allocation of resources, etc. Through design progress control, design progress delays can be discovered and solved in a timely manner to ensure that the design is completed on time.
In actual application, adjustments and supplements may be made based on specific project and organizational conditions. The goal of design control is to ensure the quality and progress of design, reduce design risks, and improve product competitiveness and market success rate
