“Even though SGW Designworks is in Boise and the project was in Baltimore, I selected SGW because these guys are good and they know the molded foam process, the foundry process, instrumentation, and design of experiments. They are a really talented & creative group of engineers” – Barry Ramsey, VP Operations, Lifoam Industries
A Product Development Company.
Collaborating With Businesses and Internal Product Teams to Design the Right Product Faster.
We are located in Beautiful Boise Idaho, but we work with clients all over the United States in the development of innovative new products, equipment, and systems. Businesses have trusted us as their product design and R&D development partner since 2008, serving a wide range of industries and markets. We are capable of turnkey product development, including complete mechanical design development, electronics design, and embedded systems development throughout the full product development cycle. We apply Lean Startup principles , which means frequent, focused prototyping and iterations throughout development. Learn more about our product design services and stay ahead of the competition.
Increase Product Development Efficiency with Experienced Product Design Engineers.
Early and frequent validation of feature set, function, and manufacture-ability is critical. Using rapid “Build-Test-Learn” cycles through phased product development, we identify high-risk elements of a system, product, or business, and focus product design and engineering efforts there first. This approach provides faster development timelines, with multiple opportunities to pivot or revise the product based on test findings. The result is a higher likelihood of staying ahead of your competition; introducing new or next-gen products faster when the stakes are high.
“The team at SGW Designworks was able to identify and test multiple solutions to a complex development challenge in a short period of time, then carry those findings over to a full development effort. This had real impact on the speed of our development project.” – Calvin Allen, Senior Program Manager, Medtronic.
Development Projects From Concept Through Production.
Each product development project we work on is unique. But most include a combination of concept development, product prototype development, final product design, design for manufacture (DFM), and manufacturer engagement, following this project structure . Some recent projects are shown below, at various stages of development.
