Product Development

PKA have extensive experience in developing new products from the initial stages of design through to acoustic prediction, prototype testing and product release. We can provide expert advice at the concept stage which can save time and money by predicting the expected acoustic hurdles and providing solutions to improve the product prior to costly testing. PKA can provide expert oversight of acoustic laboratory testing. This may include developing a schedule of systems to test to allow for the most comprehensive results for the client, as well as providing onsite advice during the testing. Such an approach can minismise the number of expensive tests required as well as adapt systems quickly so that optimised configuration can be developed and tested during the scheduled laboratory time. This can avoid having to schedule additional laboratory bookings, saving the client both time and money. PKA is and has been on the cutting edge of product developments such as:
