Onyx360 Product Development Process Step 2: Focus on Business Development

Step 2

“Quote It and Rough It Out…..Fast!”

Focus on Business Development

Everything comes back to growth. We don’t want to waste your time with endless hours of design modification and changes if the project cannot meet your business goals.

We provide quotes and design solutions that assure success moving forward. It’s not a question of “if” it will work, but how.

Onyx360 Product Development Process Step 3: Build It. Validate It. Refine It.

Step 3

Development and Sampling

Build it. Validate it. Refine it.

Improvement is a process of learning compared with process control and measurement. We usually build 2-3 samples during this phase. By the end of this phase, you have a finished and complete product ready for tooling and testing.

You will get full exposure to everything we do and all the options we look at. We take you through this development process. You are the reason we are here after all.

Functional Testing & Engineering Refinement


Ask and dig. We like questions and we like our clients coming along for the ride.

Onyx360 Product Development Process Step 4: Cut a Tool Only After Validation

Step 4

Tooling and Pre-Production Units

Cut a Tool Only After Validation

We don’t trigger the tooling process until both you and our quality assurance team are confident the product has leveled up and is ready to go into production. Tooling usually take 4 samples to get right. We label these T0-T3. T4 is your pre-production golden sample.

Keep in mind that sometimes we have to do tooling before testing and certification. UL safety testing is a perfect example of this.

Onyx360 Product Development Process Step 5: Don't Pay if It Doesn't Meet Standards

Step 5

Safety Testing, Certification, and Quality Assurance

Don’t Pay if It Doesn’t Meet Standards

Our expert quality assurance team has managed quality assurance for brands like Microsoft, LITE-ON, and HP. We don’t leave anything to chance or assumptions.  This is why none of our factories receive payment until your products meet your safety and quality standards.

You will get a custom built inspection & standards document for every product that you have. This will establish all inspection requirements, quality limits, performance, and visual standards. We follow your recommended AQL’s.
