How We Work?
Our Design and Engineering Process

Working with us isn’t like engaging with a typical design and engineering consulting firm. No matter the technical or geographic area, we strive to make exceptional engineering designed solutions available to everyone.

We do that by leveraging experienced, capable and passionate technical staff, and applying them to your problem through a structured engineering and design process.

“The Enginuity team did a superb job taking us through the early product discovery phases of our project. They assisted in bringing our idea into clear focus, mapping our path to bring the product to reality.”

– Carl Hallett, VP Engineering (MacDonald Hallett Oceans Protections Engineering Group Inc.)

1. Discovery

Vision Validation & Early Risk Management

The best ideas come from the floor, whether it’s a factory, the back deck of a boat, an operating room, or a golf course. In Discovery, we take those inputs, however ambiguous, and delve into the ‘what,’ ‘who,’ and ‘how’ of your project.

This essential phase sets a solid foundation for project requirements and scope, identifies main technical risks and business challenges, and builds a plan to continue with value driven development.

2. Conceptual Design

Developing solutions and validating concepts

This phase utilizes a blend of technical expertise and creative insights to transform abstract ideas into workable solutions. This includes finding off-the-shelf solutions, analysis of similar technologies, concept evaluation against requirements, safety and risk assessment.

We dive deep into the functional elements, generate sketches and proof-of-concepts to de-risk where needed.

3. Priliminary Design

Fast-Forwarding from Design to Demonstration

This step includes generating preliminary CAD models, selecting critical components, optimizing for manufacture and assembly, and right-sizing a functional prototype for thorough testing and validation.

This dynamic process results in a finely tuned working prototype, alongside detailed test results and lessons learned, which collectively inform budget and timeline optimizations, making sure you are on the right track.

4. Detailed Design

Translating Technical Innovations into Reality

In the Detailed Design stage, advanced numerical calculations and analyses, specific component selection, final design of custom parts, and production ready prototype lay the groundwork for innovation.

Deliverables, including a detailed 3D CAD model with interdependencies and budget considerations, are tailored for efficiency.

5. Fabrication Package

Assembling Your Fabrication Package

The Fabrication Package stage designs for manufacture, detailing tooling and fabrication plans. It includes identifying supply chains and finalizing drawings and materials, ensuring readiness for production.

A critical design review follows, assessing QA-stamped drawings and assembly instructions. This process culminates in a ‘proceed to build’ decision and a production budget, marking the transition to manufacturing.

6. Implementation & Testing

Implementation and Testing for Flawless Functionality

In this phase, we start with careful sourcing, purchasing, and precise assembly, followed by thorough inspections. Subsequently, rigorous tests assess functionality, validation, and certification.

This advances to a detailed project review, encompassing a complete documentation package, on-site installation, and setup, alongside a consolidated testing plan and results. This stage concludes with lessons learned, poised for your final approval and acceptance.

7. SupportPackage

Comprehensive Support and Ongoing Partnership

Our collaborative on-going relationship doesn’t end at project completion. We offer comprehensive post-implementation support to ensure your project continues to operate at peak efficiency.

From troubleshooting to upgrades, our dedicated team is always here to provide ongoing assistance, ensuring any challenges are swiftly addressed.
