Are you an entrepreneur, startup, maker, inventor, or small company developing a new electronic hardware product? If so, you've come to the right place.
As an engineer and an entrepreneur that has brought my own hardware product to market, I understand all of the obstacles you are facing bringing your own product to market.
There is no doubt it can be incredibly overwhelming to figure out how to turn your idea into a real product.
Our goal at Predictable Designs is to help you proceed with your product in a more predictable fashion.
Sometimes this means being brutally honest with you. Your only chance of success requires that you have honest, realistic expectations on all of the complexities and costs that lie ahead.
We tell you what you need to hear, which may not always be what you want to hear.
Where are you currently with your product?
If you are at the product idea stage (or perhaps have a Proof-of-Concept prototype based on an Arduino or Raspberry Pi) then you should start with our Predictable Hardware Report.
This custom report service includes a preliminary design of your product with selection of all the required production components, an engineering feasibility review, and a detailed cost analysis.
You also get private consulting time with me and referrals for developers, suppliers, and manufacturers.
By starting with a preliminary design we can accurately estimate the cost to develop and scale your product, as well as the actual cost to manufacture it.
It's essential that you know your manufacturing cost as early as possible in order to determine if your product can be made and sold at a profit.
If you are further along and already have a schematic or custom PCB design then our Predictable Design Review service is for you.
Getting an independent design review is one of the best ways to lower your development risk and cost. It's always much cheaper to discover design issues early before prototyping or manufacturing begins.
Both of these services include private consulting with me so you can get all of your questions answered. You will also have the option to sign-up for additional consulting time.
Finally, one of the primary ways we help you succeed with your product is totally free, and that is our blog. Regardless of your technical level you will find an incredible amount of information and advice about bringing a hardware product to market.
