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.

Product Transfer

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

Concept Development

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

Production Oversight

Once validated, SNC prepares the technical product specifications for your review and sign-off

Product 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

Market Analysis

SNC performs an internal technical feasibility assessment to establish the producibility of the envisioned product

Technical Feasibility

What We Bring To Partnerships

Innovation and Creativity

At SNC, we are committed to developing innovative and creative solutions to overcome your unique challenges and meet your evolving needs

Timely Delivery

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.

Environmental Sustainability

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

Customer-Centric Approach

We actively engage with you throughout the product development process to understand your needs and preferences

User-Friendly Design

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

Competitive Pricing

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

Transparency & Communication

You are informed and involved throughout the entire development process. We publish updates, requirements, decisions and questions on a live online platform to promote complete transparency
