mass produce and quality control your product efficiently
Within the Production phase, we support engagement with the selected manufacturer, who will be specifically chosen for your needs. Typically we work together firstly to complete final design adjustments to cosmetic elements such as colour, texture and materials.
Within the Production phase, we support engagement with the selected manufacturer, who will be specifically chosen for your needs.
Typically we work together firstly to complete final design adjustments to cosmetic elements such as colour, texture and materials. Once this is completed, the design and tooling have been finalised for production.
During the last stages of product development, we will help you to finalise the cosmetic aspects of your product, establish quality control (QC) for the manufacturer’s quality assurance (QA) system, and move the design into manufacture.
We can continue to support afterwards with a programme of continuous improvement.
By the time we have finished this stage, we will have met your design requirements, confirmed your regulatory compliance, validated the production process and produced your first units.
Design Validation units are essentially the final product, and we typically do a run of several hundred or a thousand units. These serve to complete CE / UKCA marking and other regulatory compliance.
what happens next
We then work with you and the manufacturer to ramp up production, establishing robust QC processes to deliver increasingly high yield. At this stage, production is live and saleable production units are being produced, with increasing batch sizes and decreasing failure rates.
Each production service is tailor-made to the exact requirements of your project. Our team will talk through the best services to suit you, creating a bespoke process if one of our tried and tested methods doesn't fit your project.
Mass production management
Mass Production Management provides you with risk-free mass production, with pre-approved manufacturers and no large management fee. We remove the stress of product delivery, mitigating risks and managing the end-to-end route to market process seamlessly, which gives investors assurance in the product viability. We also manage IP protection, patent and design registration and copyrights to protect your ideas. Product insights for future development opportunities are also gathered through associated software applications gathering big data from the growing user data sets.
“The Thrive team have been our Technology Partners through the Concept stage. They are designing and running field trials with UK based football fans to take our vision to mass production in a very tight timeframe. Their commitment and passion has been outstanding.”
