Product Definition

Primaira offers Product Definition tools, methods, and experience to ensure that your new products address the critical stakeholder needs and market requirements that will lead to the development of profitable, market-driven products. Our approach to Product Definition includes the following elements:

Product Requirements

We develop surveys, conduct focus groups, interview stakeholders, and conduct competitive analysis in order to uncover the critical user needs that will drive your product to market success.

Product Specifications

We translate market requirements into engineering terms that are measurable and verifiable.

Concept Generation, Review and Down-Select

We assemble multi-disciplinary teams to brainstorm innovative approaches to meeting product requirements in the context of your manufacturing capabilities and the cost targets for the product.

Intellectual Property Creation and Protection

We review existing patents, published patent applications, and existing product literature in order to develop, document, and implement a technical approach that can be protected and profitable.

Design & Analysis

Design and Analysis

We use state-of-the-art design and analysis tools to maximize the speed and quality of our product development process.

Design Tools

Our experienced designers utilize industry standard, 3-D CAD design tools including Solid Works, Altium Designer, and others, and can support the design tools of your choice.

Analysis

We use additional computational tools to support our product development work including computational fluid dynamics (CFD) mechanical stress/strain software, and other in-house modeling capabilities. In addition, we use Labview® Controls and Data Acquisition Software, and MatLab® for data analysis, simulations, and algorithm development.

Fabrication & Testing

Primaira has over 6,000 square feet of laboratory space dedicated to product development work. We have full prototype fabrication capability, including:

  • 3-D printing
  • Machining (lathe, mill)
  • Sheet metal forming capability (rollers, break, shear, punch)
  • Welding capability (Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) and Shielded Metal Arc Welding)
  • Finishing tools
  • Wiring
  • System assembly

Additional instruments we use for our feasibility, verification, or validation testing include:

  • Oscilloscope, power supply, voltage, current, and power meters
  • Gas Chromatograph with FID, TCD for gas analysis
  • Temperature, flow, humidity, and pressure measurement
  • Ozone, VOC, and nitrogen oxides gas analyzers
  • Air quality measurement
  • Heat flux, radiative measurement

Additional Features:

  • Environmental chamber
  • Cooking test facility
  • Combustion testing

Manufacturing Implementation

At Primaira we recognize that the transition to full-scale manufacturing can be a critical and limiting step in the commercialization of a new product. We work with you on manufacturing implementation at our facilities or at yours. Our experience in fabrication, assembly, manufacturing planning, and manufacturing cost analysis establishes the crucial link between product development and commercial product launch.
