bb7 Announces “Guaranteed Manufacturability”

bb7 offers guarantee to clients: the manufacturability of products it designs and develops.

Madison, WI – April 26, 2016

bb7 is pleased to announce a new promise to its clients: guaranteed manufacturability of products that bb7 designs and develops. “We are so confident in the feasibility of our work, we are guaranteeing it to clients. If our work is not manufacturable, we will return their investment,” said Bob Schofield, President of bb7.

bb7 proudly guarantees the manufacturability of the products they design provided that:

  • bb7 directs all design and development decisions with the client
  • Clients work with bb7 on a Phase 1 detailed specification and both parties agree to a final design specification
  • The cross-functional early stage design reviews include the manufacturer(s) selected for the production of all components of the system

bb7’s Director of Industrial Design & User Research, Nick Higbee, champions practical design.

The guarantee is in response to client feedback indicating that, while bb7’s competitors often failed at providing feasible designs, bb7 delivers product development solutions that are manufacturable.

“We understand that manufacturability is a major point of pain in our industry. While our competition may deliver ‘cool’ ideas that are impractical, we transform our awesome product concepts into manufacturable, profitable products,” said Schofield.
