Factors to Consider in IoT Product Design

November 14, 2018

When was the last time you did manual defrosting to your refrigerator? When was the last time you switched off floor lights? Yes, IoT has made our lives simple by taking up the burden of all those extra efforts. In a way, it has made us lazy enough. This demand for instant solutions has driven the rise of IoT Product Design solution companies. But not all of them are viable and capable enough to understand and produce the right solution. If you’re stuck in knowing whether your service provider is capable enough or not, just look for the following parameters. If they follow any of these or all of these factors, then consider them to be fit for your project.

Internet of Things

Responsible Data Usage

As a device connected to internet, data generation is all set to be high day after day. This creates abundant data thereby flocking more and more. As a result, this becomes redundant data generation and one cannot find the relevant information. So always keep a check on the data generated in the products and make your design viable enough. If your service provider is not guiding you on this, then he/she is probably misguiding you. There should be a conversation on what to do with the excessive and large data buildup in the system.

Taking Context into Consideration

Let us you’re designing a product. Will you design it simply because you have to do one? So you always define the purpose and have a context for the product design. Likewise the service provider should always understand the context and take your project forward. If they fail to understand the same then that is going to be a big disaster for your brand. Always ensure you get on to the discussion of context. If not, you need to find a better service provider.

Architecture Security

Cyber security is the talking point elsewhere. Even large corporations are vulnerable to cyber security online. Your service provider must possess a robust cyber security architecture and policy to survive cyber security breach. Even the well-known social media platform- Facebook and several other tech businesses were subject to cyber-attacks recently. Hence security of system architecture is quite essential as your design can anyhow be stolen by your competitors. In case you’re building a critical product say for a government defense project, it might be approved only if it is developed in an authentic and secure facility. Thus, the importance of architecture security is more than what you had imagined.

Value Emphasis

Value is the foremost important factor in any project that you take. It could be IoT product design, PCB design services, CAD design services or even engineering detailing. Value should be given foremost importance as you’re dealing with solving real time solutions of people. Hence in this case, emphasis on value is the key factor and your service provider should be on track. Be it research to innovate or frugal innovation. Service provider must do everything possible to make your product innovate enough to standout and deliver the best solution to all your end users’ problems.
