Discovery: the act of finding or learning something for the first time. At Solid Design Solutions the Discovery Phase of our product development process is performed to ensure a full understanding of the product goals, ensure a positive user experience, avoid late discovery of needs/opportunities, and identify the competitive landscape. The phase begins with a project kickoff meeting with all project personnel to review Client supplied information and product requirements. From there, engineering studies are performed as required to determine the feasibility of meeting the performance requirements.
The Discovery Phase is also how Solid gains an understanding of the competitive landscape to integrate features that differentiate and provide basis for intellectual property protection. Solid’s experienced team has a unique ability to generate original concepts and ideas that improve our Client’s initial product ideas. Utilizing this expertise is a great way to increase the probability of a successful, on budget product launch at the end of the product development process.
