Orion Product Development Case Study - LED Street Lighting Re-engineering

We were requested to review and help re- engineer an existing product in order to achieve significant cost, aesthetic and functionality improvements, whilst under strict cost and time constraints.  This would allow the customer to increase sales and revenue with minimal outlay, particularly in the export markets.
The main driver was the use of existing tooling as much as possible to reduce the development cost, and so working with the management team we reviewed and iterated several possible options in a short period of time in order to arrive at an optimal solution within the budget and time available. We are extremely pleased to have developed a solution that the customer is delighted with, achieving significant higher added value whilst also reaching the extremely challenging cost and delivery targets.

Kevin is innovative and creative design engineer with an excellent knowledge of the manufacturing techniques required on this project.  He understood our requirements fully and added valuable input into the design, thereby helping us to develop a fully re-engineered product whilst re-using existing tooling with the minimum of cost and time disruption.  We would therefore have no hesitation in engaging him again or recommending him to others.
