Product Design Engineering services provided by Utthunga

Do you know product-designing takes up only 5% of the product’s total cost? However, nearly 70% of the total cost of manufacturing a product is determined in the design stage. In the context of product design engineering services, product design is a strategic activity and influences the manufacturing, flexibility, maintenance, speed of sales strategies, field repair, and many other factors. The choices made during the design stage for manufacturing the final product affect the direct cost of manufacture. Any product design changes in the later stages of the product life cycle will affect the overall manufacturing cost.

It is therefore crucial that you choose experts in the product design engineering field. Our product design and engineering team support you with top-notch product engineering services to meet your and your customer’s needs. Some of our key focus areas are industrial automation solutions& control, power & utilities, and building automation & control. We collaborate in the entire product life cycle of consulting, engineering, manufacturing, DevOps, lifecycle management, including content engineering.

Some of our well-received and highly visible services are:

FAQs

1. What are the various stages of product engineering?

Product engineering typically involves the following stages:

  • Generating ideas
  • Analyzing the feasibility of the ideas
  • Creating product design, develop it, and checking it for quality
  • Creating an experimental prototype
  • Factory acceptance of the prototype
  • Large scale manufacturing the product
  • Maintenance/sustenance/improving the quality of the product

2. What is design thinking in product engineering?

Design thinking is a strategic process that involves a user-centric and solution-based approach. Here technology and business models merge to solve complex problems. Since it keeps the user end at the highest priority and aims at adding value to the whole system, it has become one of the imperative steps in product engineering.
