WB Engineering is a product design company located in Miami, Florida we assist our clients in compressing their product development and design cycles. At WB Engineering we specialize in creating products which are optimized for functionality, manufacturability, and profitability. We don’t simply look at a project as just creating a prototype, we look at your idea as a viable product in which we have to take into consideration far more than just the short term prototyping goals. After all, you want to take your idea into the marketplace.
What differentiates us from the competition?
At WB Engineering we focus on what happens beyond the pretty product sketches and pictures . In all honestly, for next to nothing you can hire a college student to design a product that looks pretty and looks like it works on the computer screen. This is not how your product will ever get into the marketplace nor get the ROI you expect.
This is a small list of questions we ask on all of our projects:
• How does it work?
• How will it be manufactured?
• What are the functional requirements?
• Is there a better way to assemble this product?
• Can we reduce cost while maintaining design intent? Is it over engineered?
• What materials are suitable for this product?
• What quantities will this be manufactured in?
• What is the target cost?
We ask these questions because we have been there… We have seen projects go to manufacturing and excel. We have worked with multinational companies to optimize a product already in existence to maximize profit margins and product reliability. We have also started projects with a simple idea or napkin sketch.
Working with manufacturers worldwide, they have noticed a trend when working with WB Engineering, typically a manufacturing company will have a customer budget 20%-30% of mold cost for mold rework. We average below 5% in mold rework once steel is cut. What does this mean for you? Not only are you
