Prototyping / Pre-series

Simulate products in full-scale, providing optimized solutions



The primary/main goal of a prototype is to support the development process of a product, since it allows the simulation in real scale, enabling the identification of design errors and the accomplishment/performance of test in laboratory or through test groups.

At some stage of the R&D process of a new product, there is the need to predict its actual behaviour. The use of prototyping is an added value, considering the benefits of its application in the reduction of  errors, time and cost when designing an object.

Prototyping is an important tool in the development process, being an approximate version of what could be the final product. That is, a real and functional representation allowing the user to interact with, evaluate performance, and provide information in order to apply changes and improvements.

This tool means working directly with requirements established by the client and presenting prototypes that allow sustainable development, focused on performance and value.
