Never underestimate the power of a good product design brief. It is the most important element to get right as it informs the entire process going forward. The brief doesn’t set out the technical details, it simply characterises the goals of the product and the overall vision. It should basically describe exactly what the product will be.

If you operate in a highly regulated market, traceability and conformity matter and are crucial to quality. A mistake many businesses make, especially in the early days, is a desire to produce quantity in an effort to grow their business and profits. What this attitude overlooks though is the value of quality.
Recognising this contrast between these two approaches and the potential benefit to a business that has high-quality standards is a big and difficult shift for established organisations. This is why, the sooner a business can implement processes and systems focused on quality, the easier it is and the better start the business will have within the formative years.
So what do you need to know about ISO 9001 Compliance?
Producing and testing a prototype is a fulfilling, informative, valuable and affirming process. Testing the prototype allows your design to come alive; highlighting the beauty and functionality of it but also shining a light on any flaws which can then be rectified before full-scale manufacturing begins. It is very difficult to practically test a design without a prototype but the truth is that it can be an expensive and time-consuming task. Sadly this is why so many designers try to cut it out of the process but doing so is a big risk. In this post, we will share with you 5 reasons why the testing phase is so important in your product design and should be an integral part of your products journey.
Trying to do everything in-house is often possible but not necessarily efficient and leaves little room for business growth and development. We see businesses profiting every day from outsourcing their manufacturing and in this post, we will explore the top 6 reasons why it works so you can decide if outsourcing is right for you and your business.
