Over the last 13 years, I have been working primarily on product design and development of consumer products. When I say " I have been working..", I am directly involved on every process of the product development as follows : 1. Concept generation / Brain storming 2. Engineering design 3. Rapid prototyping (CNC, SLA, SLS, FDM, objet), prototype assembly and prototype evaluation 4. Design adjustments (if needed) based on the prototype 5. Mold meeting / Mold design approval 6. First article inspection 7. Parts approval during injection / Parts approval for non-injected parts 8. Mass production supervision I am also familiar with different manufacturing processes like metal stamping, ultrasonic welding, blow molding, compression molding and extrusion (both metal and plastic). With all the knowledge and exposures that I have acquired, I would say that I am not contractor by the "drawing board" only but a contractor who can deliver any consumer product to the market.
I have strong technical experience in wireframing solutions for SMBs (small-to-medium businesses) up to larger enterprises (ASX top 50 clients). I work collaboratively with customer groups to refine and test the wireframes to ensure they satisfy customers, and at the same time, work hand-in-hand with engineers to ensure that the interactions proposed are technically feasible and implementable within scope, time and budget. Beyond my interaction design skill set, I have experience in Product Management and Digital Strategy.
