Robotics & Industrial Automation: Why You Should Work with a Product Development Partner

Working with a product development company to bring to life a robotic or industrial automation technology can ensure that the product meets demanding design requirements and market objectives without the cost of a full-time development staff. Here’s a look at how Goddard partners with our robotics and industrial automation clients to help them achieve their mission.


What is a product development company?

A product development company is a partner organization that you can hire to assist in designing, building, testing, and commercializing a product. These firms range in skills and capabilities, spanning the length of the product development process – from early research and product definition all the way to manufacturing and sustaining engineering. 

Goddard’s team of product development experts are often brought in to lead or assist in the development of new products, but existing technologies are also fair game. We are often tasked with helping to refine or identify a problem with a product that’s already on the market.

Why work with a product development partner to bring to life your robotic or industrial automation technology? 

  • Meet demanding design requirements – robots and industrial automation technologies often require integrating feedback from an array of users (assemblers, technicians, end-users, etc.) An experienced team can help you parse through and prioritize your design requirements, preventing delays further down the development process. 
  • Take advantage of interdisciplinary expertise – At Goddard, our team combines experienced mechanical engineers, software engineers, electrical engineers, and industrial designers who have worked in a range of industries. This blend of experience enables us to effectively advise our clients and move through the product development process in a thoughtful manner. This really matters when you’re dealing with complex, novel technologies. 
  • Meet business objectives without the cost of a full-time staff – Designing, building, and testing new, complex technologies takes a lot of time and money. By partnering with an experienced product development firm, you can meet your development goals without the cost and time associated with sourcing, hiring, and training a full-time staff.
