BAC Engineering provides a wide range of services for product development. This section lays out areas of expertise offered for hire, and ways I can help bring your product to life.
Top-down design ideation, research, brainstorming, mockups, and design studies. Whether your idea is a working model or a cocktail napkin sketch, I can turn it into a real product design.
Design of parts, mechanisms, assemblies for medical, industrial, and consumer products. I can make sure your idea is soundly engineered and easy to make.
Electronics, software, industrial design, optics, and chemistry. With 40+ years designing products, I have developed a large network of trusted engineering resources I can bring to bear on projects whenever deeper expertise is needed.
Complex shapes – no problem! I’ve used SolidWorks for 30 years, and know how reduce concepts to 3D models quickly. I can provide renderings to help communicate your ideas
Full documentation to let you take your product anywhere for manufacturing. This includes drawings, material and component specifications, assembly and software documentation, packaging and labeling.
Assistance in getting your product built right. I start by choosing design features, materials, and processes for quality, reliability, and economy, assist in the transfer of design data, then verify that it’s done right in the factory.
Quickly making appearance-only or full working versions of your product in very small quantities. Sometimes a model speaks 10,000 words about your idea. Low-volume production can be accomplished in days or weeks.
Testing and Inspection
Diagnosing quality issues, auditing vendors, evaluating returned product - making sure your widget works and keeps working.
Selecting suppliers, supplier agreements, tooling liaison, and first article inspections. I’ll help you through the growing pains of manufacturing start-up and make sure your customers stay satisfied.
Budgets, schedules, and coordination between vendors. I can serve as your “general contractor” to keep things on track.
Putting systems in place that mean you don’t have to worry about quality. If you need to get your product approved for sale through FDA or ISO, I can help with that.
Patent disclosures, diagrams, and analyses. I can work with your patent attorney to make sure you have freedom to operate and obtain patents for your invention.
If you need to raise money for your project, I can build your investor presentation deck and help present in pitch meetings.
If you need something written for your product, such as user manuals, proposals, regulatory submissions, labeling copy, press releases, etc., I can quickly pound it out.
Training of employees, salespeople, management, or customers about your product or its use or manufacture. This includes preparation of class materials, tests, and records.
