During the design process the underlying goal is to optimize the desirable properties while minimizing any undesirable properties. To some extent, this often ends in a compromise, but one that meets or exceeds the requirements dictated by the application.
The list below illustrates a simplified timeline of a typical project's development.
1. Address the application of the part that is to be manufactured
2. Prioritize the physical properties necessary for the project
3. Development of a suitable material
4. Tooling design
5. Prototype part
6. Testing of prototype
7. Revisions if any to design or material
Once a part is created, it is inspected for flaws and weaknesses. If any faults are exposed, they will be addressed and the tooling or formulation altered accordingly.
