Did you know that 92% of PTC customers said in a recent survey that they could benefit financially by having a better platform for developing their concept designs?
What are some of the common themes, issues and problems that are currently being talked about in industry on concept design and its importance to the product development process? PTC recently did a survey and they found that 92% of their customers, when asked, said their businesses could benefit financially if they had a better platform for exploring concept designs.
When an idea strikes, what do you do about it? How do you start to turn those initial ideas into a proper concept and, eventually, a finished product?
When it comes to concept design, companies typically have a range of different paradigms that they want to use during the concept design phase. Then they want to be able to reuse this data during the design development, without losing any of the design intent. So, it isn’t a surprise that having the right tools in place is vital if you are going to make the best use of your concept design work.
Concept design is crucial to the success of a product. But getting design concepts into a shareable electronic format has traditionally been a challenge.
Concept design is crucial to product development. It doesn’t matter whether you use traditional techniques, 2D tools, or 3D tools, getting your concept design right is vital for the subsequent stages of product development. This is where creative and innovative ideas can have the most impact; before a product have been involved in weeks of design development.
Concept design doesn’t just happen in one tool. There is no one option fits all companies solutions. In fact, even users within the same industry have different preferences when it comes to concept design tools. What is important, though, is that the concept design tools you use are the best for the job. Concept design tools have undergone significant changes since the days of just engineering notebooks. So, let’s explore the modern ways of doing concept design.
Concept ideas can come from a wide range of sources and there are plenty of ways to look at concept design. But, for most engineers and designers, only some of concept ideas start from scratch. Instead, many will come from, at least in part, from existing design models. So, let’s take a look at why this is the case.
Did you know 92% of companies believe they’d benefit from exploring more design options in the early concept stage? Makes sense really. The more designs options that you can investigate, the more confident you can be that you are offering the right design solution.
