What's beyond the idea?
So, you've had a great idea for a new product. But what will it actually look like, how will it function, and how will it be manufactured? These are just some of the core engineering questions that form part of the product development process. A process that Ideas Realised can assist you with every step of the way, from initial idea through to finished product.
Our approach is always flexible and collaborative. We offer a range of business models to suit all requirements - from basic hourly rated tasks, through to long term engagements, where up-front costs are reduced in exchange for shared future benefits.
You can also pick and mix from our services to support your in-house team. As our client you'll have as little or as much interaction as you need or want. From full engagement, to see your idea safely delivered, down to minimal contact when outsourcing basic CAD support services. As the client, it's always your call.
To get you started we offer a free initial one hour consultation session that will enable you to set out your ideas and receive realistic and informed feedback and advice.
For your peace of mind, we will only talk to you about your idea once we’ve provided you with a signed, industry-standard, non-disclosure agreement (NDA). You should always insist upon an NDA whenever you want to discuss your idea with anyone – even friends and family!
Product Development - Our services and the design process
As a new inventor, the route from idea to finished product can seem daunting, surprisingly lengthy, and potentially very expensive. With the right advice and sensible direction, the road becomes very much easier to navigate.
The design process itself is also much more than just pretty pictures of a concept. It is robust engineering, thoughtfully applied to ensure your original idea is captured and realised as a fully functional, cost-effective, and marketable product. Around this engineering core are layers of essential support activity, all of which we can advise and assist with.
The following service steps offer an outline of a typical project flow, but we will use our experience to ensure you get the correct level of support and advice at every stage of the process.
From your original idea...
... to the finished product. Fully and professionally realised.
