What we do in:

Product Development

M3 has the skills to help you take your product idea from a blank sheet of paper to manufacturing handoff and everything in between. Product development is what we’re all about. We’re driven to help get your products to market on-time, on budget, with the right features and superior usability. We apply our decades of experience to help you navigate through the product development process tailored to your unique business climate and goals.

Team up with M3 and we’ll help accelerate your product idea through strategy and product definition, concept development, detailed engineering design, and production release.

We help you define your product at the front-end strategy phase with a mixture of research, planning and evaluation techniques to define success criteria and ensure you’re solving the right problem the best way. We develop concepts to satisfy those success criteria, test them with stakeholders and refine those concepts until we determine the best solution.

Our engineers take your chosen concept, create detailed engineering designs, and generate the release documentation packages your supply chain needs to produce your products. We engage with your supply chain during the entire process to ensure the design is built cost-effectively and with superior quality. Don’t have a supply chain? Don’t worry, we can help you put one in place.

Once the design is released, we can oversee initial production runs for you, or be on-call to help you during ramp-up, depending on your needs.
