Are You Developing Product Without A Virtual Prototype?
Did you know a virtual prototype is the vital link between new product development and real profits?
A digital prototype is the single most powerful tool in use today for new inventions and idea screening.
FYI: virtual and digital prototype are the exact same thing and used interchangeably.
It is indispensable for conceptual development, Finite Element Analysis (FEA), testing motion simulation and incorporating human factors.
No other tool is more useful for market analysis or determining costs of materials and manufacturing.
When you skip the digital prototype phase and head right into the development of a working prototype you have just thrown hundreds of $1000's of dollars out the door.
Unless you have very deep pockets, you simply can't afford to ignore the most powerful tool available to you today.
Why would you choose to commit product suicide?
Developing a virtual prototype in the early stages is the key to saving time and money, yet many inventors and new product developers are still living in the dark ages.
Your digital prototype will significantly reduce development cycle times and in many cases it is quite possible to eliminate the need of a costly physical model all together.
Are you developing a new invention or product without this powerful technology?
Here is the key to getting your product to market on-time and on budget....
Virtual prototyping puts you in complete control of the entire development process.
So what if I don't have the resources to implement digital prototyping?
Gasp! Choke! This is precisely what your competition is counting on!
There is no need to purchase costly parametric 3D modeling software or spend hundreds of hours studying and training to take advantage of this powerful tool.
Why on earth would you make that enormous investment?
All you need is the right source to develop your virtual prototype for you.
So do I really need a virtual prototype?
This article attempts to show the vital role a digital model plays in the explosive cutthroat arena of new product design (NPD).
By integrating this technology into your process you will effectively maximize your business potential and leverage your organization as a best-in-class competitor.
Can backyard inventor afford virtual prototyping?
If someone tells you otherwise it is because they don't want you to appear as competition!
The big-guys just don't want you to realize the power of digital prototyping.
The reality is this...
Major corporations are using state of the art technology in their new product development (NPD) process.
They have invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in sophisticated software and more money on extensive and costly training.
It takes years for them to begin to realize a profit from this major investment.
In the end, the consumer pays for it in massively over inflated prices.
The good news is that anyone can afford to integrate digital prototyping in their design process without impacting the final cost.
It is reasonable to say that you can develop superior products at a lower price and pass those saving on to happy customers.
And why wouldn't you? Happy customers = more $ for you.
The good news gets better...
You can incorporate digital prototyping and concurrent engineering into your new product development routine.
You can do this without purchasing incredibly expensive software saving you $1000's.
If that's still not enough, you can do all this without spending 100's of hours in training to learn very sophisticated operating routines and functions and you don't need to learn parametric 3D modeling skills.
Now your way ahead of the game!
You just made your competition squirm in their seats!
Can digital prototyping rival traditional physical prototyping methods?
The point of creating a virtual model is to reveal every pre-production requirement up front.
It enables multiple iterations of a concept instantly and allows every aspect of a design to be scrutinized with finer detail long before a decision to create a working model is made.
Better yet, digital prototyping can even reduce the need for a physical prototype 30% to 40% of the time.
When concurrent engineering is integrated with a virtual prototype it is possible to eliminate the need for working prototype all together.
Imagine savings in the thousands or even millions of dollars when you don't need to pay for very expensive physical prototypes!
Now imagine additional cost savings when you reduce the product development cycle by 30% to 40%!
Virtual prototyping IS the most functional, efficient and affordable way to develop new ideas into real working products.
Harness The Power Of Digital Prototyping
Why People Use ICT
When it comes to complex mechanical systems, custom machinery, hardware or tooling, ICT delivers high-quality, high-value solutions. My first collaborative effort with Will Zeober was completed in 2008. I look forward to an ongoing professional relationship for years to come. If you're seeking a design and engineering expert who is committed to the objective - Will Zeober and ICT will deliver on-time, on-budget and on task.
