Design products with product engineering, design, and visualisation tools that reduce new product development time and help lower costs

Whether you have an objective to reduce production costs or development time, improving your current workflow will assist you in meeting these objectives.

Tailoring a workflow that allows better collaboration, from product development to manufacturing, ensures that you deliver your objectives.

Workflow for consumer product design

Producing more innovative consumer product designs makes certain that an organisation remains competitive in a crowded market.

Adopting an improved workflow ensures that collaboration with partners and suppliers will result in a reduction of production time and can also reduce costs.

 

Understanding your workflow

Here at Majenta Solutions, we take pride in listening to our clients and getting to understand their processes and objectives.

Understanding your current workflow and your objectives is the first step in a journey which aims at reducing costs and improving efficiencies within the design and manufacturing process.

Consumer Product Workflows

Conceptual Design and Styling

  • Save time during the conceptual design phase using a common development platform between design and engineering teams.
  • Explore early creative concepts without the need for precision.
  • Organise, manage and track your conceptual design data so that your entire team can participate in the design process.
  • Capture all aspects of your design, define success, and incorporate your extended team so they can collaborate and share knowledge.
  • Quickly capture, evolve, and evaluate creative ideas to get more innovative designs to market faster.
  • Use existing design data to model new concepts or modify designs.

Product Evaluation and Marketing Communication

  • Support creativity, collaboration, and efficient change processes by deploying a common development platform across your teams.
  • Convey ideas earlier in the design process and help team members visualise what’s coming to market next.
  • Find, share, and reuse data across teams using a common data management platform to speed collaboration and prevent data loss.
  • Help all stakeholders participate in design reviews, and document milestones automatically.
  • Create realistic, marketing-ready virtual photography and cinematography.
  • Present your design ideas and alternatives in customisable, interactive scenes.

Detailed Engineering

  • Create detailed digital models of your designs before they are real.
  • Reduce costly physical prototyping by accurately predicting thermal performance, cooling requirements, and product reliability.
  • Improve product reliability by subjecting your design to the stress it will experience in the real world.
  • Gain early insight into a product’s manufacturability and cost before it ever leaves design.
  • Use resources more effectively by assigning the right design tasks to the right people.
  • Help ensure that all of your design data is managed effectively so that it can be found, shared, and reused.
  • Help to ensure effective compliance, supplier management, and engineering change processes by expanding collaboration beyond the engineering department.

Tooling Design

  • Quickly build plastic injection molds using library standards and workflow automation to improve the quality of plastic component designs.
  • Reduce waste and eliminate overdesign by analyzing the wear and impact that tooling will need to endure.
  • Reduce costs by evaluating the impact of injection locations, cavity length, and mold cooling before committing to expensive tooling.
  • Speed through repetitive mechanical design tasks by taking advantage of functional component design tools and drafting capabilities.
  • Manage tooling data with the same level of process control as the product it is intended to support.
  • Extend project access to collaborators throughout the design process so timelines are met and the correct data is referenced.

Manufacturing

  • Use existing design data and take advantage of preconfigured factory assets to speed creation of factory layouts.
  • Reduce operational costs, enhance comfort, and improve safety by refining factory airflow, HVAC performance, and process ventilation.
  • Improve product quality and reduce costs by predicting the plastic injection molding processes.
  • Quickly create reusable circuits, controls, and IO schemes for use in manufacturing.
  • Maintain quality and compliance by ensuring that process controls are linked to manufactured products.
  • Read, modify, and author design data from across the organization with multi-CAD translation, visualisation, and component design tools.
  • Efficiently manage your manufacturing design data so that all stakeholders can find, share, and reuse it.

Support and Warranty

  • Create product documentation that is current, interactive, and available on desktops, browsers, and mobile devices.
  • Read, modify, or author documentation from across your organization with multi-CAD translation, visualisation, and component documentation tools.
  • Incorporate product design details into your data management system so support and warranty teams can quickly find, share, and reuse them.
  • Provide your teams with the product information they need to meet quality, safety, and profitability requirements.
