There was a stringent deadline attached. In view of faster time to market requirements, they were needing our support in designing the shrouds (which is outer part with aesthetic importance) with minimum guidance
Our task was to provide them with Shrouds design solutions and to create innovative design concepts.
Scoping & Information collection
Concept generation & evaluation
Onward suggested multiple concepts taking care of design for manufacturability, design for assembly and serviceability Material and process selection – a major component of the design aspect
Proposed tooling layouts for all parts considering aesthetic requirements
Material and process selection.
Strong governance and first time right design principles led to clearance in first design review.
Prototypes built at customer end were assembled first time right owing to perfect designs
Time to market needs were met as expected due to reduced prototyping timelines.
