Artifex is a full-service, product development company, based in North County Coastal San Diego, with over 10 years of experience providing complete engineering and manufacturing services for medical, life sciences, consumer, commercial, industrial, and military companies. We combine Concept Development, User Research, Human Factors Engineering, User Interface Design, Industrial Design, Systems Engineering (Mechanical, Electrical, Software), Usability Testing, Pilot Production Support, and Regulatory Compliance under one roof.
Research and Analysis
Our process-driven approach aims to identify, define, design, and test devices for functionality and manufacturability. We begin with of a variety of research methods, including experimentation, proof of concepts, FEA, and system modeling, to identify unknown problems and analyze unique solutions. A systematic analysis of our discoveries drives new product strategies and establishes design inputs. Beyond initial analytical research, Artifex’s process incorporates formal usability testing and user validation, resulting in products that meet rigorous quality standards and have increased user adoption and greater success in the marketplace.
Artifex delivers comprehensive services for all stages of product development. Our talented and skillfull team of designers, mechanical, electrical, and software engineers collaborate to deliver on every aspect of the development process. From inputs to validation, Artifex‘s systems engineering approach ensures that efficient solutions to complicated mechanical, electronic, and software programs are met. We place a high value on the engineering process, both within our internal group and among our client teams. Good communication is critical to managing expectations, scope of work, budgets, and schedule in order to achieve a successful project outcome.
Artifex’s design-for-manufacturing process continues seamlessly throughout the development process and into design transfer and production. We support the build of production - equivalent units for verification and validation testing and manufacturing readiness. We work closely with local and global resources to specify quality components and support contract manufacturing. Our goal: to develop manufacturable products and to see the design process through to a successful transfer to manufacturing.
