This method resulted from observations and experience gained during the realization of different projects (of various nature and settled in different disciplines). The PIW is a comprehensive procedure enabling the Passio Group to successfully drive projects, starting from ideas, all the way to implementation on the market. This methodology enables us to design and launch innovative products and services by combining business awareness with market insights.
Many factors contribute to success, we designed an intelligent system that connect those aspects together and enables us to take a full advantage of the opportunity and initiate the world’s change. This approach gives us possibility to take each project a one step closer to perfection.
We are convinced that our solutions give priceless benefits to both our client and the end-user. The Passio Innovation Way was introduced because we believe that through our solutions and with small steps we can change the world. This corresponds to our motto “We keep life moving”.
Our solutions are refined and developed based on real needs coming from our clients and their clients. We are confident that the PIW guarantees not only good quality but also successful market implementation of the product. We rely on our knowledge of tough market requirements, the presence of active and continuously developing competitions and the actual state of the art and scientific researches.
The “Inspirational glance” is the first stage of the Passio Innovation Way. Its aim is to anchor the idea in a specific area, discipline (i. e. diabetes mellutius for example).
This stage is generally based on different sorts of analysis (on several disciplines). It consists of the description of the state of scientific and technological knowledge, the needs of the market, the present competition and the user needs. Conclusions driven out from such wide analyses suggest which narrow part of the examined areas have the most promising development potential.
Deep Future Thinking
The main aim of “Deep Future Thinking” is to go deeper into the analysis of a chosen area, i. e. diabetes mellitus for example as described earlier. In this particular example, being aware that the solutions relate to the replacement of the pancreas will allow us to narrow the wide analytical area to a small niche.
This niche, with its potential, may be very rich in new scientific solutions. It could be also filled with patents or have difficult market characteristics due to existing products and competitions. Finally, it could address the various needs of the end user. The thorough analysis of the data gathered through the mentioned investigations will become the basis for the creation of research hypotheses related to the projects.
The main goal to achieve at the end of this stage is to build a functional model. In our opinion, functional means acquiring all properties, functions, and features defined as a crucial by the end user. This is the most dynamic and creative moment in the entire Passio Innovation Way. It is crucial to extract real value from this stage through multidiscipline specialist teams.
The BioDesign stage uses creative tools such as the design thinking methodology to try to find an answer to the following questions:
- “What are the true needs?”
- “What are the main obstacles?
- “What properties and functionalities should the future solution have to be accepted by end users?
During stage “1”, the intellectual, financial, medical, clinical, public relation strategies need to be prepared or at least the project team should be aware that these aspects are crucial to the successful implementation on the market.
The aim of „Product engineering” stage is to deliver 10-100 validated prototypes. For Passio Group this is one of the most crucial points in process of product development. The transformation from a functional model to functioning prototype leads to tedious designing processes; designing the original shape, the tools (i. e. injection moulds), choosing the proper materials or small parts, testing the suppliers, searching for an assembly factory.
During this stage, the construction team must be aware that, on one hand, they need to deliver the solutions for a high-quality product and that, on the other hand, there can be some financial restrictions related to the rentability of the project. At this stage, many crucial decisions must be made in relation to the budget of the entire project; choosing the proper way to obtain certification, the sale strategy and the promotion method.
“Production engineering" is the moment when the process is scaled. It is important to keep in mind at this stage, that If you can produce 100 pieces of a device that does not mean that you could produce them in the million scale, for example. This is a difficult stage which consists of initial production, optimization of the technological process of manufacturing individual elements or entire devices, as well as a challenging assembly process of the entire device.
Precisely, the development of the logistic process is a challenge. It is mainly connected to the undisturbed process of delivering subassemblies and materials to the assembly plant. Another challenge also comes with the planning of the temporary distribution of ready product series to warehouses and further to customers.
The last stage is the "Product Impact". It is the moment for implementing the solutions to the market. For the Passio Group, this means collecting data on; How have the customer and most importantly the user ultimately reacted to the product? How has the competition reacted? Have the solutions and user opinions collected during the project been confirmed?
Such implementation moments serve as a test regarding the quality of the product. This is directly translated to the perception of the Passio Group as a reliable and solid business partner. A good opinion is also a ticket to establish further business contacts and strengthen already established relationships.
