The client is a manufacturer of amplifier and speaker products. They had developed a design for a ceiling cavity satellite speaker. The client commissioned Hillside Product Design to assist with cost engineering the product to allow them to make substantial savings on parts and assembly to enable them to compete with offshore competitors.
After analysis of the existing design and the required costs and expected sales forecasts, we prepared a proposal for a more economical manufacturing option with improved assembly costs and supported this with manufacturer’s quotations. Parts were manufactured directly from CAD data and control drawings with full support for the toolmakers up to signing off.
