Services & Competences

Production Creation & Innovation Services

We are product creators specialized in smart sensing solutions. Our services range from small, one-time consultancy or development projects till full end-2-end product creation including, industrialization, certification and production. With most of our clients we have long-term relations. 

Getting the essence of the product clear. Sit with the client to really understand the basic idea and the problem that it solves. What are the envisioned use cases. Is there competition and what makes this solution unique? Brainstorm to work towards a unique product concept.

Then 2M can help to make the translation from concept to the best technical product solution leveraging existing and new building blocks.

We investigate patent positions of existing products to see if and where there is room to operate. 

Creation of new (patentable) ideas during brainstorms and product and function developments. 

Create a functional demonstrator of the product concept to prove and demonstrate the technical feasibility of the solution. Focus is initially on getting the core measurement function right.

Risk, product and project cost and planning can better be estimated when the the technical feasibility is proven. 

We create prototypes based on user requirement specifications [URS], which we can also help to create.

Typically we create prototypes in two rounds: create alpha prototype > user testing > create beta prototype. Go/nogo decision to turn the prototype into product based on user, client and/or  business feedback.

Prototypes are often used for research and clinical studies.

Turn the prototype into a manufacturable solution. This includes all preparation steps for manufacturing including test tools, tooling creation, production processes and documentation.

2M has no own production which keeps us flexible. We work with a selected number of trusted production & assemble houses that can handle, small, midsize or large quantities. Other arrangements are also possible.

For small and midsize volumes 2M also assembles products.

We help companies by taking over the responsibility  for (parts of) their innovation and technical product development. The benefits are always state of the art technical knowhow, flexibility and lower costs and risks so that our clients can stay focussed on the business.

2M works in modular blocks and architectures for most building blocks like hardware, software and signal processing. Based on the existing platforms and building blocks its fast, low riks and cost effective to create your own products and solutions.

2M is experienced in project & product management and leading and executing complex projects with various national and international public and private organizations.
