DESIGN THINKING

Learn how to imagine an innovative, intuitive, relevant product that boosts user engagement

Use-based design means thinking with and for the user so that the action they have to perform is as natural as possible. Analysis by user category of a typical day and the user’s interactions is key.

Use-based design aims to improve user experience while simplifying the process.

Use-based design feeds product and interface design.

Our fab lab speeds up the process by allowing rapid prototyping.

The aim of our use-based design service:

The result is an innovative and intuitive concept for the user that enhances the product experience while ensuring that the market demand is met.

Methods:

Our method is collaborative and based on design thinking, which encourages the team to produce a solution from the situation.

RESEARCH... to patent

Find out how to invent a patentable proof of concept that fits your project.

To achieve an intuitive product, it is sometimes necessary to break down a technical barrier and invent a new solution. This translates into a “proof of concept”, which can lead to a patent. The invention is matured within the framework of your project’s constraints (size, complexity, maturation time for industrial output). As a result, it is more quickly transferable to the industrial product.

Our fab lab reduces research time with an integrated assay and testing space.

We have extensive experience in the following fields:

picto-filtration fuide

Air and fluid filtration

picto-bruit

Noise reduction

PRODUCT DESIGN

Learn how to define the design of your product based on your core brand to make it ergonomic, attractive, and achievable at your target cost.

Designing a product to cost aligns the product with the company’s strategy and makes it desirable and economically viable for mass production.

It simultaneously uses two strategies to enhance the value of the product: it increases the perceived value for the customer, and at the same time, optimizes the production costs for the manufacturer.

Our fab lab accelerates the product design phase.

The aim of our Design-to-Cost service

To imagine an attractive, ergonomic, original, and industrializable product design at the target cost for limited series and mass production.

The custom design phase is necessary to increase the chances of user adhesion through intuitive use.

Methods:

Design-to-Cost product design is a transversal approach that involves all the different departments in your company—management, marketing, R&D, purchasing, production.

MECHANICAL INGENEERING

Find out how to concretize a functional prototype including product design so you can approve of choices before industrialization.

The engineers and developers in our design office translate the design into a functional prototype that resembles what the final product will be. The technical, normative, and industrial know-how that allows them to do so is the result of 23 years of experience. With Blanc Tailleur, you’ll find a partner with a mastery of plastics, mechanics, and prototyping.

The aim of detailed development of prototypes:

To confirm and approve the design choices that will then be pre-industrialized.

. The client’s marketing department and our designers verify that the design meets user and market expectations.

. The technical and production teams approve the design in order to industrialize it.

. Procurement approves the costs.

INDUSTRIALIZATION

Learn how to optimize design to streamline costs, increase reliability, and begin mass production.

The industrialization of the product is conducted in co-design with the manufacturers of the mass-produced parts to optimize costs. We accompany you through the approval of the first mass produced parts and the beginning of mass production.

From there, you can manage the production of your product.

You benefit from our network of manufacturers, which guarantees quality and design/development time.

The aim of industrialization:

To support our client in the mass production process.

Once the first parts are given the go-ahead for manufacturing, we launch the production tools and optimize their realization for a small- or large-scale production.
