A proven product development process is imperative to successful product development.
More than half of new products fail to meet business targets. To successfully launch, a product development processes requires phases – project exploration, requirements elicitation, system architecture, development, verification and validation, and design transfer to launch.
Find out how to create a successful product development process and learn more about the integral team roles and systems that support product development. This eBook explains the Syncroness Product Development Process, which collects more than 20 years of company experience and best practices learned through thousands of projects while developing products for more than 700 clients.

Innovation comes at a cost, but are the costs of your product development escalating too quickly?
Hidden costs can significantly impact the overall ROI of your product development. Take a look at the three macro categories that comprise hidden costs throughout the product development process:
- Incomplete project proposals
- Misaligned expectations
- Scope creep
Make sure you’re not making these mistakes and make a plan for how to fix them if you find yourself in a bind as we discuss the hidden costs of product development. Complete the form on the right to download the white paper now.
Many symptoms indicate that product development is off track. Missed project milestones, unclear project goals and team roles, frustration due to lack of progress, and interpersonal conflict all lead to chaos and challenges in the development process. This negative disruption has a cost – wasted budget and a lack of confidence that the product will come to fruition. Is it even possible to get back on track?

Manufacturing in the aerospace and medical device industries appear to have little in common.
The size and cost of aircraft and spacecraft differs drastically from nanoscale biology and disposable medical device components.
Innovation is the key to a company’s sustainability, and in perpetuating a competitive advantage in the market. It is easy to find ways to reduce cost, but it is an art to develop a new or improved product that the market will value.
Bandwidth Constraints: it is one of the most familiar and frustrating terms for managers and engineers during the product design process. Management is trying to run a profitable business and asks employees to be increasingly creative to use resources and time available to execute all project tasks.
Agile product development aims to regularly deliver tangible value to the customer. Agile prioritizes values that drive progress, collaboration, and results.
The goal of the commercial space industry is to provide fast and affordable access to space. This industry, highly regulated due to the complex nature of its products, presents unique challenges for engineers and companies. New opportunities in the industry open doors for options in product design and the influence of nimble design firms that can help rapidly remove the barriers between man and space.
The balance in the design of aerospace components comes with aiming to lighten the component mass while withstanding the high structural loads on the materials. This high load-to-material strength ratio makes the components susceptible to thermal and pressure cycle fatigue, as well as vibration, due to the wide ranges of operating conditions.
For obvious reasons, highly regulated industries and agencies require a level of vigilance beyond that of a traditional manufacturer. This proficiency is most natural to spot in the form of certifications specific to the applications.
Spontaneous imbibition of a liquid into glass‐fiber wicks is modeled using the single‐phase Darcy’s law after assuming a sharp flow‐front marked by full saturation behind the front occurring in a transversely isotropic porous medium. An analytical expression for the height of the wicking flow‐front as a function of time is tested through comprehensive experiments involving using eight different wicks and one oil as the wicking liquid.
In addition to providing on-demand help with the challenging task of joining metals of varying thickness and geometry, an expert contract welding partner provides many other side benefits.
Welding is often at the middle to near the end of a fabrication process, but through their expertise in welding techniques, a contract welding partner understands the process steps that occur before and after that operation – adding well-rounded expertise to your process engineering.
Heat exchangers are an efficient tool used to increase the thermal efficiency of a system. A heat exchanger is defined by the relationship Q=UA∆T, where U is the overall heat transfer coefficient of the heat exchanger, A is the total heat transfer area, and ∆T is the entering and exiting fluid temperature difference. Improving heat exchanger performance is accomplished by increasing U, A, ∆T, or a combination of the three. 7 ways to maximize heat exchanger performance are listed below.
