Purpose and goal
The design material developed and the connections established through the project have been significant for future development and market introduction for Foiltwister. A well-thought design has evolved which gives Foiltwister a boost and new marketing material. The development plan has been refined and more clear, providing a more stable business material to show other actors. Several potential investors have been contacted and other project funds have been applied for. The project has been very successful.
Expected results and effects
A new industrialized design has been developed according to plan. It includes a well refined design that can be applied to multiple products. The result includes CAD models, graphics and rendered images. The result is that Foiltwister can proceed with the next step and produce a model with this design and implement a more extensive and effective marketing in 2018.
Planned approach and implementation
Having committed the right resources the project has achieved great results in a period of time. Mannerfelt Design Team has been a vital partner that has delivered within the time plan. By executing many tests and implementing mechanical modifications of the prototype effectively, the most recent technical design has also been implemented in the new esthetic design. In parallel, the business plan have been improved through teamwork, project manager and input from external advisors.
