Our Product Development Process
SNC transfers your product to manufacturing, in which the production line is designed and all production and quality specifications are defined. See Contract Manufacturing for more details.
If contracted, SNC performs relevant tests on the product to validate that it meets its intended use, and to identify any design flaws or necessary improvements
Product Testing and Validation
SNC creates initial product concepts for your review and testing
SNC provides a project proposal, which includes the project life cycle, development fee and project plan. An estimated product cost range is also provided, which is narrowed as the project matures
Cost Estimation & Proposal
SNC works closely with you to gain a comprehensive understanding of your goals, requirements, and vision for the product to align expectations, and defines your product specifications and quality standards
Discovery and Understanding
Your product development team provides guidance and oversight to ensure the product is manufactured according to your specifications and quality requirements
Once validated, SNC prepares the technical product specifications for your review and sign-off
You provide feedback and SNC incorporates your input into refining the product concepts. This iterative process may involve multiple rounds of feedback and refinements until the product requirements are met
Feedback and Iteration
If needed, SNC collaborates with you to conduct market research and competitor analysis to identify market trends, customer needs, and potential opportunities
SNC performs an internal technical feasibility assessment to establish the producibility of the envisioned product
What We Bring To Partnerships

At SNC, we are committed to developing innovative and creative solutions to overcome your unique challenges and meet your evolving needs
SNC recognizes the importance of staying ahead of competitors in bringing new offerings to market, and therefore assigns a dedicated Project/Delivery Manager to your project, ensuring efficient project governance, planning, risk mitigation and agility - more about our team.
While nanofibers offer innumerable environmental sustainability benefits in themselves, traditional manufacturing techniques typically offset these. At SNC, we uphold sustainability by ensuring the entire PDLC is considered, from product design, to manufacturing and waste reduction
We actively engage with you throughout the product development process to understand your needs and preferences
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. SNC makes a concerted effort to understand the intended use of your product, and designs solutions that are user-friendly and intuitive for your application
Your success is ours. SNC offers minimal and incremental product development fees, reducing your investment risk. In addition, your product pricing is communicated upfront to avoid any surprises, and is kept low thanks to SNC patented high-throughput nanofiber production platform
High Quality & Reliability
We follow a rigorous, systematic product design methodology according to international standards to ensure that you get a high quality, reliable solution that will meet your requirements
Adaptability & Flexibility
SNC recognizes that new product development is not a simple linear process. Our agile development approach allows us to adapt easily to your changing needs without compromising on speed or quality
