Product Development – whether it is new or for refit, for one-off custom construction or mass production, we create a product from the customer’s requirements, and facilitate the best balance for the design and construction through drawings and consultation.
Powering analysis, speed prediction, and market studies are used to ensure the concept fits the requirements for the design’s foundation. Artistic sketches and spatial drawings are developed to illustrate the concept and present its appearance to the customer.
Our approach to the hull design is formulated scientifically with empirical data, whether existing or required through testing. Should the concept parameters lie outside of known data, the project evolution will be directed to model development and testing to ensure a good foundation of data analysis.
Using conclusions developed in the previous stage, the hull, deck, structure, and other details are built and refined in 3D computer space. This tool allows the customer to view the product as it takes shape and guide its creation. Small details come too light and are built to achieve a product that promotes efficient construction and meets the concept requirements.
Drawings and digital files are developed to allow the digital shapes to be cut and/or pieced together on a shop floor. The forethought and intellectual property captured within those shapes are documented and illustrated to allow a robot, a craftsman, or both, to build exactly what the customer has seen on the computer screen with high tolerance.
Involvement continues after the last drawing is complete. Once completed, a smooth transition from design phase to construction is assured by working directly with the vendors. This may include the builder, if not already involved yet at this stage. Packages are prepared and estimates solicited for the customer’s review.
