Agile methods ensure product information is always

Accurate, Current and immediately available

Product strategy slider


Agile is a production methodology that provides configurable, fast delivery and the ability to respond rapidly to change. (not applicable to make-to-stock or single product make-to-order processes)


Standardisation is the process of providing a robust product definition which is available immediately to anyone authorised to access it.


Products are structured as reusable modular elements, containing valuable data and selection rules. Modularity makes efficient reuse of design information.


Product configuration is used to very rapidly configure products. The configurator applies rules to ensure the user only ever makes valid selections.


Design automation uses the configured information to drive downstream processes such as computer-aided-design or manufacturing systems.

Design Engineering

We design industrial products and systems and have considerable experience in the specific requirements of many industry sectors. Your requirements, specifications and standards are important to us and we will work wherever possible as an extension of your team.  Gatehouse Design engineers have current safety passports. We appoint a chartered engineer to oversee all design work. We use Autodesk Inventor, Solidworks, AutoCad for modelling, engineering drawings and ANSYS Structural for finite element analysis.

Product Development

Gatehouse Design has considerable experience in developing industrial products and bringing these to market. We can help you at every stage of the new product development process from initial concept to production planning and marketing. We understand the need to maintain budgets and timescales whilst managing project uncertainties. Gatehouse Design can help secure valuable patent protection for innovative ideas and can help you agree strategies for avoiding infringement of existing intellectual property.

We look at the long-term objectives for the product, how the product behaves as an integrated part of a product family and how the product links to sales and engineering systems.
