Working Together

SG Designs has the expertise and capabilities to bring your product ideas to market. We believe in providing clients with designs optimised to the real performance and cost requirements, on time and on cost.

Our approach depends on the nature of the project and the client. Many clients undertake large parts of the process themselves whereas others may wish to have us do the bulk of the work. We can cover the whole process or just parts of it as required. In either case we always ensure clear communication with sufficient reviews and checkpoints.


A structured approach allows us and the client to have a clear understanding of the tasks required, a means of managing any changes, plus documented reports such as design specifications and validation reports. Implementing good design disciplines throughout the design and development cycle gives you confidence that your product is ready for production.


A flexible approach because we can undertake the complete design and development process or just parts of it.

but structured

A flexible but structured approach to product design and development is key to success.

A typical design process is outlined below:

Feasibility studies, ideas and concept generation.


Research and Development. Perhaps the product concept requires some basic research before we can create a solution. It may also require analysis of existing or competing solution.
Devising suitable solutions then discussing and refining with the client to reach a specification.
Specification creation with the client. This can vary from the client providing a detailed specification to SG Designs writing a design specification for the client to review.


Detailed design, calculation and simulation
CAD Schematic capture


Complete product design including enclosure design if required.
CAD PCE design
Prototype build
Functional Testing and design validation including a validation report.


Regulatory Testing e.g. EMC and Safety testing.
Modifications, if required, from Regulatory testing.


Arrange manufacturing of prototype and production units.
