Before a manufacturer makes a large investment in tooling a new project, engineers must make sure the new designs they propose work perfectly. The best way to test and ensure new designs work as desired is through prototyping and product refinement.
As sections become more complex and tooling costs increase, it is more important than ever for engineers to get prototypes right before production begins. How can engineers make the most of the prototyping and product refinement phases of production? That’s the big question this post sets out to answer.
