Today’s product development landscape is characterized by high demand for variety, increasing customer expectations, and near constant innovation.
Companies that want to measure success in reducing and improving their product development process should examine two key factors:
Taking these factors into consideration, transforming a design into a physical object has never been more efficient or affordable than with rapid prototyping solutions.
Although prototypes are relevant throughout product development, the purpose they serve evolves as product development approaches product launch.
For some products, advanced evaluation stages require new approaches to prototyping, whereas other products allow for greater consistency in prototyping methods.
A few questions to ask when selecting a prototyping technology include:
Answering these simple questions will help narrow your focus to find the right solution for your needs.
