Do you Need to Accelerate your Engineering?
The Accelerate Design team strikes an artful balance between science, engineering, and innovation throughout your product development. Trust our validated processes and expertise to engineer your idea into a manufactured product.
If you could just use some extra technology firepower or are looking for a complete turn-key development program, call us. Many business models rely on specialists with extensive experience in the entire design cycle. Learn how Accelerate Design’s decades of experience across multiple disciplines can accelerate your path to commercial launch.
Your project will Accelerate along a proven Phase-Gate process. Managing risk in the early stages using Agile techniques during Technology-Development, Concept, Assessment, and Specification-Iteration. Followed by Design & Development when a Gantt schedule can be costed into a meaningful estimate.
Call for a free assessment and find how Accelerate Design can improve the speed and quality of the engineering that will turn your idea into a manufactured product. 508 641-1642
Accelerate Design knew exactly what to do and kept us on the fastest and most cost-effective path. The development of our endoscope device required design for manufacture improvements to reduce risks before making a significant tooling investment.
How We Can Help
You aren’t hiring us just to design your product, you are hiring us for the years it took to know how to design your product. We are multi-disciplined experts who excel with challenging problems.
Our interdisciplinary process goes beyond design engineering and incorporates aspects such as Regulatory Compliance, dFMEA, Risk-Analysis, and Supply-Chain so that your product is inventive and innovative.
At our core, we are Mechanical-Hardware specialists! In the end, you need a BOM or else your electrons, photons, fluids, don’t go where you want them to go.
We use the latest CAD tools such as SolidWorks Premium and OnShape. Along with Solidworks Flow Simulation for Finite Element Analysis (FEA) for material-stress, vibrational fluid-dynamics, and thermal modeling. With particular strengths in athermalization of electro-optical systems.
We are multi-disciplined experts who excel with challenging problems. Even the simplest products need a systems approach to develop a commercially viable product.
Our interdisciplinary process goes beyond design engineering. We incorporate aspects such as Regulatory Compliance, dFMEA, Risk-Analysis, and Supply-Chain so that your product is inventive and innovative.
We will ensure your process follows a Phase-Gate approach. Managing risk in early stages using Agile techniques during Technology-Development, Concept, Assessment and Specification-Iteration followed by Design & Development when a Gantt schedule can be costed into a meaningful estimate.
Our team includes Industrial Designers with a variety of backgrounds. We approach the challenge from multiple points of view, leveraging experience from the most appropriate industry, applications, and/or devices.
Prototyping Through Minimum Viable Product
Accelerate is our name and Rapid is our game.
Employing tried and true techniques along with cutting edge technologies, we can build prototypes for needs such as Visual Models, User Studies, functional Clinical Studies, Proof Of Concept, process development, etc.
Depending on the goals of your MVP, we can evaluate if Direct Digital Manufacturing can satisfy low to medium quantity manufacturing. if not, we have the Design for Manufacturing experience and Contract Manufacturer relationships to set up a robust supply-chain.
Concepts & IP Development
Our team has contributed to several patents. Some of which have come from early Concept Generation.
Our Concept Generation processes aren’t just for the initial phases of your project. Unforeseen issues will arise in any development that require mini-innovations along the way. Being unplanned, they are always urgent.
To Accelerate schedule, we front-load these obstacles bringing in multiple points of view from industry experts and ask two key questions:
1) What is the ideal solution?
2) What is the best way to manufacture a solution?
By Bracketing these Boundary Conditions, we can begin a synthesis process to find the best feasible solution.
Usability & Human Factors
We always start with the User’s unmet needs in mind. Clinically based User Research is now required by the FDA for Medical Device 510k submissions.
This reduces risks by spotting fundamental problems early on, strengthens the User Requirements, and fulfills Design History File requirements.
Design for Manufacture / Test & Assembly Fixtures
We always ask how are you going to make-it, fabricate-it, assemble-it, and test-it?
Our experience of cycling through the full Design & Development Process countless times gives us an edge.
You aren’t hiring us just to design your product, you are hiring us for the years it took to know how to design your product.
