The Butler Technologies New Product Development Process.
Starting a new product from scratch.
Below is our 12-step process for working together .
Together we create new products and experiences .
Step 1: Initial Conversation .
The process begins with your need.
Reach out and talk to our team at Butler Technologies
We’ll guide you through the process of working with us.
Step 2: Non-Disclosure Agreement
We want to protect your ideas and designs.
We’ll execute a mutual NDA so that we can talk freely about your project
Step 3: Introductory Call with the R&D Team
The BTI team will evaluate the project
Does the project require materials research, testing or design assistance, etc.
Does the project fit the BTI scope
Once we have enough information, we will follow up to determine next steps.
Step 5: Submit Proposal.
We will develop a Statement of Work and the project deliverables
You’ll know the project’s costs, terms, and timeline.
Step 6: Proposal Accepted.
Once the financials and the Terms & Conditions are finalized and agreed upon
the contract is accepted.
Step 7: Finalize Technical Requirements
Here is our opportunity to review your project specifications and discuss any open items prior to ordering materials.
Step 8: Submit Design for Approval
You will receive an approval drawing and any relevant CAD files detailing the design
This is your opportunity to review and make changes.
Approval drawings are reviewed and signed off.
This begins the project timeline.
Step 9: Procurement & Scheduling.
At this point in the process, tools and materials are ordered.
The production job is scheduled and the production process begins.
Step 10: Prototype Production.
The parts are manufactured to your specifications.
The parts are inspected, tested, packaged and shipped to your location.
Step 11: Customer Validation.
Once parts are received, they should be inspected and approved.
If further innovation or design improvements are required, we can re-start the new product development process.
Step 12: Full Scale Production.
Once the ideal product has been approved, we will move your project into full-scale production.
Let’s make your concept a reality.
Get started today!.

We believe that by being upfront about the project garnishes trust and creates a partnership.
Once the quote has been accepted, the next step is prototyping and testing your product.
We can prototype any quantity your project needs.
We can produce anything from small prototype runs to mid-sized pilot runs for production trials or field trials.
Speed and responsiveness are key to being effective in this stage of a project.
It’s important for us to respond quickly and communicate with openness and honesty.
Quick design iterations are critical to project success.
Iteration, Innovation & Improvement are crucial to developing the perfect product.
We are eager to push the envelope of what is capable with today’s technology.
We embrace technically challenging projects.
Whether it’s something we have done before or looking to forge new ground, we enjoy the challenge.
Through collaboration, we enjoy creating new methods, ideas, and products.
Once the design is ready, we can begin production.
Knowing the right design, the best process, and manufacturing methods, we can take your product into full-scale production.
We can produce your product here at our facility in Butler, Pennsylvania regardless of the scale.
We have the machinery, equipment, and experience to launch your product.
Together we create solutions.
