Definition of the technical requirements for the product

Ideation & UX Design for your IoT Solution

Every design project is individual.
That's why we adapt our Ideation and Design Workshops according to your needs.

With our design development workshops, ideas can be generated and tested quickly. We pursue a holistic and user-centred approach.

The procedure is iterative: the design process is usually spread over several days.

Conceptual flexibility ensures that highly individualized products are manufactured cost-effectively. Our team of experts will help to work out the technical feasibility and economic efficiency.


Procedure of our design developments

Together with our customers we develop digital as well as physical IoT products and solutions. Depending on the requirements and the status of the project idea we offer different workshops.

However, we generally follow the following basic process in product development:

one (1)

Research & Analysis

First and foremost, it is about understanding the problem and bringing everyone to the same level of knowledge.

The requirement profile for the design is based on the following content points:

  • Formulation of corporate goals
  • Analysis of the market situation and competitive products
  • Definition of the persona and their needs
two (1)

brainstorming & conception

In the creative second phase, a brainstorming session takes place on a broad scale:

  • Development of features, solutions and design variants: For this purpose, all ideas that the team has in mind are put on paper - by means of terms and sketches or digital wireframes
  • Clustering of emerging themes
  • Critical discussion & breaking the brainstorming down to the most important ideas

Concrete elaboration

Which idea comes into the prototype phase?
This is where capabilities and goals are discussed that may influence this decision.

  • Documentation of user interaction in a step-by-step process using storyboards and user stories
  • Creation of first design drafts
  • Effective evaluation of the design and incorporation of further improvements

Construction of the first prototype

Now the first prototype is being built. This represents a largely functional model with the final functionality and appearance. Depending on the project, this can be

  • a digital clickable prototype
  • or a prototype produced by additive manufacturing processes (laser cutting, 3D printing)

This can then be tested and the mechanical elements can be checked and optimized for functionality.

After final testing and evaluation in the prototype phase, a data set is created which is adapted for the corresponding manufacturing process.

Ideation Methods

Ideation Methods

We use proven methods from Design Thinking and Event Storming.



We define user stories, customer requirements and analyze required hardware and software.


Prototype production

Subsequently, a decision can be made about the production of a product.
