|Requirements gathering: This is important. We need to understand your problem and what you are trying to achieve in order to fully contribute to your session. It’s common to find this first step is not clear so it’s a solid process for you too! We use a number of techniques to focus in.
|Next is the idea generation phase: This is the bit that most groups find the easiest and no doubt you will have some ideas of your own. If not, we do have some techniques to prize out more creative nuggets and our fresh eyes might bring a new perspective.
|Idea ranking: We then help you rank the projects considering the criteria you set during the requirements. We identify 1-3 ideas to take to the prototyping phase.
|Then it’s on to the bit that you have been waiting for – some physical prototypes to assess the concept. We like to have at least one physical prototype and we can also make digital ones too. We want you to have something to touch and feel that conveys the concept idea.
|Test it out: Depending on the complexity, we will aim do some initial testing to ascertain the performance of the prototype vs. the target. We have many different types of mechanical testing facilities plus we can also do some simulated testing on more simple ideas.
|And that’s it! Your project has been turbo boosted and you will have a clear direction of where you want to go! We’ll summarise all the work that we do over the session and give this to you digitally and you’ll have some physical parts in your hand and also some digital prototypes to take away.
