Design is also important because it has to do with the way that the customer interfaces with your product. We have an increasingly sophisticated society when it comes to Hi-Tech items, so you need to make sure that it is up to speed.
This is oversimplified, but these categories all symbolize the process it takes to go from a good idea to a marketable electronics product.
Apple iPhone had to recall thousands of units of one of their versions of the iPhone 6 when it first came out due to one oversight on the design. This was a costly error that forced them to have to recall hundreds of thousands of units, when it could have been avoided.
To avoid this scenario, you need to be hypervigilant about the quality of your materials and products, no matter what stage you are at in development. Every step should be treated as though it were the most important step. This is what guarantees quality with the finished product.
The intricate wiring and functionality of your PCB boards will require that you get it right almost 100% of the time. The cost of recalling products and having to re-engineer an electronics product can be costly. Do your research and make sure you are having it assembled correctly from the onset so that you won’t find yourself having to go back to the drawing board.
Going back to the drawing board costs both money and time, something you really can’t afford if you’re in the business of mass producing your invention.
The average customer understands how to use a computer. They understand the most basic technology. Some of them might even toy with coding or creating their own PC. But it’s pretty certain that most of them do not understand the intricacies of a PCB board or the delicate processes that are involved in creating a machine like you are creating.
That doesn’t matter.
What does matter is that the machine you are selling them is something they will love, be proud of, and want to refer to others. This is only accomplished by a careful, painstaking process from professional engineers who understand their craft.
The design has to do with the way that customers interface or relate to your product. The design also has to do with the way it looks and whether or not is attractive enough to catch the attention of your target audience that you wish to sell to. The design should help with the functionality and that should work together in a way that complements the product.
Bad design results in multiple returns, complaints, and dissatisfied customers. When people decide to pay money for your products, so they do not want hassles. Electronic products such as computers are supposed to save time and reduce stress, not create more. Avoid a bad design at all costs, starting with a call to MJS Designs. We can show you how to create a design that people will want to have.
