Project research allows you to find out if your challenge is practically solvable. MARND research process is very comprehensive. It starts with one idea or more and ends with a detailed report in the form of a booklet that covers everything from challenge analysis to final recommended solutions with conceptual designs included.
Market Research, Technology Research, and Intellectual Property (IP) Research help establish the product idea position in the market against ready available current ideas, patents, and products. This gives an understanding of the industry landscape. In this stage, past and current valid intellectual property (IP) are analysed to assist the feasibility of developing the proposed new innovation.
The research investigates current active competition in the market and relevant concepts. In addition to, ideas that might develop into a competitor product in the foreseen future. A survey of prices currently offered for competitor products can also be done to estimate possible savings the new innovation could bring. Some projects require on-site visits to evaluate operation challenges. We observe and communicate with end-users within your company to help set and evaluate design solution goals.
Abstract feasible ideas are developed to provide the required solution and achieve set goals, turning vision into reality. Features of the new products are selected from an array of possible features usually to provide the most efficient solution.
The concept is then sketched by hand to create a visual representation of the idea and features and help the development process to proceed.
