Approach

From idea to product in four defined steps

At BlueThink our approach to development is driven by a cross-sector philosophy, led by our multidisciplinary team of experts. By applying our broad knowledge of technologies, we can leverage existing supply chains, accelerate development and reduce costs for the client.

Our four step process is designed to progress development quickly from idea to product. This tried and tested development flow involves both creative thinking and scientific methodology. Focusing on balancing functionality and efficiency with quality and an enhanced user experience.

Concept
Design

The objective is to UNLOCK opportunities by understanding the market in detail. Applying creative problem solving to define the technical specifications, features and benefits of a successful design.

• COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE
• MARKET RESEARCH
• IP UNDERSTANDING
• CONCEPT DESIGN
• USER CENTERED DESIGN
• DESIGN THINKING
• VALUE PROPOSITION CREATION
• BUSINESS MODEL GENERATION

Technology
Roadmap

By taking existing technologies and applying them in a different scenario, we create a landscape of cross-sector innovation. We use technology to ENABLE rapid solutions for specific challenges.

• ENABLING TECHNOLOGIES
• CROSS-SECTOR INNOVATION
• TECHNOLOGY LEVERAGE
• TECHNOLOGY LANDSCAPING & SCOUTING
• TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER
• ROADMAP CREATION
• KPI EVALUATION
• COST REDUCTION

 

Engineering
& Prototyping

At this stage the aim is to DEVELOP and validate the new solutions. Carefully planned prototyping and testing loops help refine the design in readiness to transfer to manufacturing.

• enabling technologies
• PRODUCT DESIGN
• MODELING
• VIRTUAL VALIDATION
• AGILE PROTOTYPING
• SYSTEM & SUBSYSTEM TESTING
• DESIGN TO COST

Industrialization
Support

Once the solution is finalised and ready to implement, our team can offer continued support. Ensuring the transition is smooth and that any issues that arise as you PRODUCE are quickly resolved.

• enabling technologies
• PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
• MANUFACTURING HANDOVER
• PRE-PRODUCTION PROBLEM SOLVING
• SUPPLY CHAIN DEFINITION
• OPTIMIZATION AND COST REDUCTION

The BlueThink Solvers Network

We take innovation seriously and to elevate our capabilities we formed the Solvers Network. This unique group is made up of 300 solvers originating from start-ups, research centres and high tech enterprises.

A collection of companies working together to identify and share global technology solutions. All operating independently of one another, but collaborating to pass on scientific knowledge and make advances with cutting edge technologies.

BlueThink analyse the problem, then utilise the network to source the technology and expertise needed to create a solution. The network operates under complete confidentiality, keeping the client’s identity and project protected at all times. This unique approach has been applied in hundreds of projects, delivering excellent results for many satisfied clients.

Our Solvers Network continues to evolve, ensuring we stay ahead of the curve and identify trends before they develop. One of a kind, it provides a constant source of inspiration for problem solving and new idea generation.
