Concept
Development

Concept development is a crucial stage in the new product or service development. It takes place early on in the process and helps to identify key perceptions, user needs and wants associated with the product or service.

Concept development involves coming up with a detailed description of an idea, explained from the perspective of your customer. A concept typically highlights the best features of the proposed solutions in terms of:

USER EXPERIENCE
DESIGN

A UX design consists of Why, What and How of product use. The Why involves the users' motivations for adopting a product, whether they relate to a task they wish to perform with it, or to values and views associated with the ownership and use of the product. The What addresses the things people can do with a product - its functionality. Finally, the How relates to the design of functionality in an accessible and aesthetically pleasant way. UX design start with the Why before determining the What and then, finally, the How in order to create products that users can form meaningful experiences with.

RAPID
PROTOTYPING

Rapid prototyping is a way to quickly fabricate and visualize a solid model of a part or assembly using 3D CAD data. In other words, it is a fast and more cost-effective method for creating prototypes for product development.

It helps for a multitude of uses like functional testing, tooling, moulds, visualization and as a proof of concept. Deeper uses of Rapid Prototyping include decreased development time, reduce costly mistakes, give an effective communication to the end user and allow multiple variants if the product.

Steps in Rapid Prototyping Methodology

  • CAD Model Preparation as per the required design
  • Creation of 3D print ready file, in the form of .STL file
  • Use of appropriate rapid prototyping/ 3D printing methodology
  • Model finishing and post processing

FULL STACK
DEVELOPMENT

A full stack developer has the functional knowledge and the ability to work on all aspects involved in building an application. He is proficient in

  • Writing optimized front-end code in HTML, Java, JavaScript
  • Creating and using APIs and writing backend code in Ruby, Python/Java
  • Working with system infrastructure including hardware and OS
  • Networking, Security
  • Understanding, creating and querying databases
  • Project management and Client coordination

Full stack developers work across all layers of software. They may not necessarily have to master everything required to work on the front and back end, but they can work on and understand both sides.
