Industrial Design Process

. Research of new and existing product categories

An aspect of the research side of design that usually goes unnoticed, but if it is done incorrectly can make a product stand out, and not in a good way. However, when it is done correctly, gives a product something special, and is what keeps consumers coming back for more.

. Ergonomics and human factors research

Demand for well-designed products is increasing and form factors and ergonomics play a critical role in the design. If a product is weak in ergonomics and some of the human factors are not considered in its design, the product does not contribute to the quality of life.

. Ideation sketches and concept iteration.


. Detailed drawings with components layouts

. Presentations of potential products for marketing

. Final concept refinement

. Model building and detailed 3-D CAD modeling
