Through our end-to-end concept to creation to customer model, we address these challenges and offer a unique solution.
Whether you are a start-up, or an existing brand, we can help you to improve your success rate
At SMS we understand that rapid innovation is initiating the need for speed and disrupting the market as we know it. Technology companies are demanding more, which is why at SMS we continuously look to the future, to go beyond what is needed today, to prepare for what technology our customers will require tomorrow.
The pressure is increasing to accelerate the conversion from concept into creation, to produce the right product at the right time, in the right place, more effectively and efficiently than the competition and at a profit. Our robust development approach, guided by highly skilled program managers, effectively optimizes a design for both performance and manufacturability, through rapid iteration loops of analysis, prototyping and testing. At SMS, we strive to get you a quality machine-built prototype in the shortest lead time possible. We have taken the experience and knowledge from the volume production process and placed it in a dedicated fast turn prototype department, using dedicated flexible and highly capable placement equipment.
- Quick quoting processes
- Full procurement service
- Rapid manufacturing lead time
- Dedicated equipment and resources
- Short batch and low volume production
- Seamless transfer to move your design from Prototype, through New Product Introduction (NPI) to volume production managed by the same experienced program management team
We’ve harnessed the required technology at the speed of innovation, but in our experience, even the simplest of product designs face challenges.
- Scaling to production
- Hardware and software integration
When a product design is not optimized for manufacturing and the market-entry challenges have not been addressed, risk, complexity and costs grow. We manage the design cycles and the design process to ensure costs are controlled and product milestones are met. This solution provides our customers with greater design services, scope and scale. Covering the full spectrum of design for manufacture services.
