Product Development

At Chapman Maker, we understand the competition our business partner’s face in many industries. Our business partners have counted on our experienced engineering team for nearly five decades to support their competitive advantages.

We focus on constant communication throughout the entire process, including the design phase, to ensure our business partner’s application success. A dedicated Program Manager is assigned to each project. Through the ideas of partners, our technical team can provide the design and development of the entire product structure and application program. This ensures our partners the highest level of quality, efficiency and cost effectiveness for each and every component manufactured.

Our team believe all stages in the development and production of an application are important. We work closely with our business partners to ensure success throughout each stage. Our attentiveness to product development, design for manufacturing and utilization of mold flows to analyze and make design recommendations provides our business partners with a competitive edge from the beginning.

Whatever stage you are in during product development our team is ready to assist and make recommendations for your designs to reduce molding and secondary service costs.

We have worked with customers to develop products in some of the following fields:

1. Sports and Outdoors

2. Mobility / Accessibility

3. Health / Wellness

4. Industrial Tools

5. Industrial Machines

6. Construction

First step: Idea - The project starts with your idea for a product. Let us help you define its essential functionality and visualize an approach that will work best for your target market. We will also benchmark and consider examining existing intellectual property.

Second step: Detailed Investigation- While we determine the ID of a new product, our business marketing team needs to do market research to ensure that our product meets the current market positioning and market demand. According to the results of our analysis of the market, we will optimize and upgrade the product structure, functions, and allow our products to enter the market quickly for sale.

Third step:Design - To make the best product for your business model, we’ll need to use design-for-manufacturing (DFM) methodology so that production can be as efficient as possible. Concepts take shape in our 3D modeling programs, and we can make decisions about features, form factor, and materials. We will agree on the most sensible path forward for your product before advancing to a build phase.

Fourth step:Prototype - In our fully-equipped facility, we can cut, mill, fabricate, 3D print, wire, and program each part and component before assembling your prototype. The prototyping phase may repeat as different designs are considered and tested.

Fifth step:Manufacturing - As experts in manufacturing, automation, and industrial processes, we help you design your product with scaling in mind to leverage savings opportunities down the road. Our in-house capabilities allow us to fulfill some production runs.

Sixth step: Delivery - The first generation of your product is ready for production and market. You'll have a complete design package, prototypes, and potentially a small run in stock. You'll also have our support as you move through the next steps.

It is important to evaluate the business case and "business value" when developing a product. Our team will confidentially help you assess feasibility quickly and guide you through an analysis of the problem your problem aims to solve.
