How We Do It
One Point of Contact from Concept to Customer
Single Source Accountability
Single-source accountability drives every aspect of the Velocity Group’s acceleration process, which is specifically designed to maximize speed and efficiency without sacrificing quality. Your project will be assigned a designated project manager to provide a reliable point of contact for everything our company can do, including:
- Rapid Prototyping
- Project Planning
- Rick Mitigation
- Test Plans and Systems
- Quality Assurance
- Manufacturing Engineering
- Sourcing and vendor Management
Fully Integrated Project Team
You get a dedicated project team, fully integrated at project kick-off, to help you produce your concept as quickly as possible while minimizing your out-of-pocket cost. The entire project team — from engineering to production to sourcing — works together to make sure your product is developed efficiently and has the best possible opportunity for market success. Because our team has a rich experience working together, we eliminate the forming-storming-norming phases and move right to the high-performing stage of collaborative execution.
100% Domestic Operations
Leveraging best in class US operations, we eliminate the challenges associated with offshore manufacturing partners, including:
- Poor Quality
- Logistics & Custom Delays
- Upfront Payment of Fees
- IP Theft and Counterfeiting
- Administrative Overhead
- Lack of Responsiveness
- Large Order Quantities Required
- Unethical Business Practices
- Undisclosed Design and Material Changes
Our fully integrated product development process removes non-value adding steps and activities to speed your product to market. We eliminate the challenges of rework associated with multiple vendor transitions and ensure that critical actions are not compromised in the name of timeline compression or project recovery. Our lean manufacturing cells are tailored to support low-volume / high-mix production programs. We eliminate overhead and reduce total program cost.
The services we provide involve every element necessary to bring your idea to life. We also offer these services as needed to fit your circumstances. We understand that you may have some of this work already done or wish to perform portions of the project with your internal resources. No problem. We will work with you to create a tailored product development program.
Working with our rapid prototyping tools, we develop the functional models and prototypes needed for design validation. Additionally, our quality, sourcing, and manufacturing teams start working on transition plans and vendor selection.
Once your design is frozen, we move into final validation. Verification and validation activities are completed including reliability testing, test plans and systems are ready, manufacturing and quality plans are finalized, key suppliers are approved, and drawings are released to production.
Finally, your product is ready for launch in our lean manufacturing operations. Our fully integrated team is already up to speed on your product, quality requirements, and production schedule for a seamless product launch.
