WE APPROACH PRODUCT RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT AS A PHASED PROCESS
Ratio has established a product research & development process that allows us to contribute in a number of ways.
We divide these activities in Phases which provide strategic reviews during the development. In the process of gathering insights for the conceptual exploration and concept illustrations to be developed in Phase One, much is learned that may affect strategy in subsequent phases.
Phase Two begins with a narrowed focus on one or more select product concepts with approved features to be engineered. Phase Two is complete once the proof of concept prototype is tested and verified. Through testing, final details may be resolved and final changes incorporated.
Phase Three readies the final CAD geometry for tooling as well as managing final coordination with vendors and manufacturers.
