You have a product idea, but now what? Kyle Jansson, from the UWM Prototyping Center, will share information about contract product development - from ideas to production, including regulatory compliance, design, fabrication, patent applications, funding and sales.Project Website
Kyle has spent his career so far developing technical products in research and design roles as a Mechanical Engineer. He has a background designing components and systems in industrial, medical, and consumer industries for private, public, consulting companies and research institutions. His keen awareness of the product development process lets him know when to apply the next steps to efficiently and effectively design a component or system while ultimately knowing how to get to the finish line. With a several generations in his family as fabricators, Kyle now combines his own passion and lifetime of hands-on fabrication skillsets with the world’s most advanced prototyping machines available at his fingertips. This will allow him to bring any idea to reality through design and prototyping. With 3 patents and 21 publications so far in his career, he is eager to continue to innovate and discover new technological breakthroughs through collaborating with brilliant minds. In addition to fabricating parts, Kyle’s goals are to engineer ideas into a reality to develop tools and technology for researchers and developers to yield scientific breakthroughs.
