Our team excel in designing from the ‘ground up’. We are experienced in developing and optimising client products that secured worldwide patents.
PES specialises in new concept design and optimisation, operating in high performance technologies in multiple sectors and using our breadth of engineering knowledge and experience.
The concept design stage of any project is most important; it sets the agenda and delivers ‘the vision’. Using the information from your brief, and our evaluation process, we explore various areas and generate different concept ideas. We often apply technologies from other sectors to optimise and maximise the performance of our client’s concepts.
We actively encourage you to feel part of the team and take an active part in the design process. Building a strong professional relationship throughout the project ensures we achieve the best possible design solution to meet your expectations.
Whatever your project, our team has the skills and experience to help you at any stage, from initial concept to completed design. Please contact us for an informal chat through your requirements; whether you require a quick turnaround, simple tooling or modelling job, or more complex design engineering projects. We will be able to deliver a solution.
More about Concept Design
Before we start any new project, we ensure we fully appreciate your product aspirations, and understand your market knowledge and experience. Sometimes you will have a thorough and clear vision of what you want to achieve, or you may have an idea that we need to build on. The more information we have to work with at the start of any design challenge; the better the solution will be.
Successful design and development is a balance of many essential and often opposing factors. At the start of any project we thoroughly evaluate and test your ideas and visions. We also work with you to ensure that your idea does not conflict with any existing technology, concepts or patents. This process starts in our initial meetings to ensure we explore the full potential of your concept.
We start the concept design and development process by exploring your brief. Working with you, we ‘drill down’ to maximise the opportunities and unlock the potential of your idea. This includes aligning your performance criteria to the most up to date technologies available. Through this process we discover how to make your concept a reality, by unlocking not just the concept, but all the IP and halo sale potentials.
Elements of the concept design phase
There are often three elements within the concept design phase.
- The Evaluation Stage: This is the most important phase, using our engineering knowledge and expertise. We provide you with an array of options and ideas, all with differing features, styles, materials, and functions to create a list of options’. From these you will choose certain elements to refine your idea into a design solution. This will then form the basis of the finished product.
- Scope of Work. We work with you to develop a scope of works to ensure that the project is fully defined and agreed by you.
- Design & Modelling. Once the Scope of Work is approved by you, the design phase will begin, and your ideas evolve to become a reality.
