Industrial design

The goal of industrial design is to make products and services as usable, good-looking and ecologically sustainable as possible. Another important aspect of industrial design is to design products and services that are profitable in terms of the cost of production.

What are the benefits of industrial design?

The design of industrially manufactured products seeks a concrete solution that combines knowledge of user needs, behavioral patterns, technical constraints, salability and cost objectives. Industrial design is usually based on a clearly defined design problem, usage case, and product concept.

A functional design brings a competitive advantage to the company. The user experience of well-crafted products is positive and it enhances brand value in addition to increasing visibility. The effect of successful design can also be seen below the line: with a good awareness of the manufacturing costs, designed products can also be more cheaply produced.

Industrial design takes several aspects into account

Industrial design takes the following into account:

  • Business objectives
  • Product users and usage modes
  • UI
  • Usability and user experience
  • Ergonomics
  • BOM
  • Manufacturability and assemblability
  • Product safety
  • Costs
  • Visual look of the product
  • Product graphics

Industrial design process

Industrial designers develop the functional and aesthetic properties of products during the ideas and concepting stages of the design process as well as during the process of bringing them into production. The designer's goal is to design products and services that combine user-oriented, productive and economic values.

During product design, compatible solutions are sought with experts in mechanics, electronics and production. Views are also sought from and reflected on by people outside the design team, such as sales or end-users.  

As the product design progresses, liaisons intensify between manufacturers. The advancing process of iterations exploits the possibilities introduced by simulation before the prototypes are manufactured. Parts are tested at a very precise level in practice.

During the final stage of product design, the subscriber is provided with 3D models of the product geometry, the product graphics, and a CMF specification that includes the definitions of product colors, materials and finishes.
