ARIDO works with clients from the product definition phases, where different alternatives are explored before proceeding to the solution implementation phase (design). These preliminary stages include market research, patent analysis, scientific literature review, and a physics-based problem decomposition process, enabling the exploration of various alternatives in product shape, fit, and function. The pre-design reports generated by ARIDO are highly specialized documents providing an overview of the requested product. Activities in this phase include:

  • Problem or needs definition
  • Development of alternatives
  • Identification of design, modeling, and simulation tools
  • State-of-the-art research
  • Design space exploration
  • Patent management
  • Concept of Operations (ConOps) generation
  • Determination of optimal configuration and its technical-economic feasibility
  • Analysis of development, testing, and manufacturing costs
  • Market analysis
  • Preparation of plans and specifications

Sometimes, clients require in-depth research before proceeding with a new product development. ARIDO’s pre-design services assist clients in gathering valuable technical information about the product before its market launch.
