Product design & reliability
- Does my product fulfil all functions that my client requires?
- Can the product I have designed actually be made?
- Will it work correctly throughout its lifespan?
Improve-U supports you in specifying an item and the features that it must have, and develops the most appropriate technical solution for you, in accordance with your client’s requirements.
Improve-U identifies the functions your product must perform, the constraints upon it, and the risks that must be avoided, so that you can offer your clients real added value. We review the designs, ensuring that they are robust, and develop optimal solutions so that production can begin rapidly and be flexible and reject-free. We establish the necessary reliability, validation and maintenance criteria to ensure that your clients remain satisfied throughout the lifespan of the product.
- How do I turn my idea into a product?
- How can I offer more added value than my competitors?
- How do I deal with constraints on productivity?
Improve-U takes over the product development for you, starting from a blank page for a new project, or from an existing product. We work with you to define the routes to take and the resources to use for future large-scale production.
Improve-U helps you throughout the process of transforming and producing your product. We analyse and develop the processes, the flows and the methods needed to achieve the production and productivity levels required. We help you to develop the appropriate route sheets through simulations, so that added-value operations can be optimised. Through our expertise, you will achieve a higher level of performance and increase your competitiveness by reducing the time required, reducing costs, and correcting process drift.
