APA provides Product Development support services, that helps in engineering customer inputs , concepts and technical specification into  manufacturing compliant product.

APA’s Product development team can support Theoretical Ideas/Concepts into Design for Assembly , Manufacturing ,Cost, Quality during construction design phase of Product development process into reality by releasing CAD 3D model/2D Manufacturing Engineering Drawings for Prototype.

APA Engineers during Simulation phase gain insights of product characteristics/technical outlines before actual test phase begins. The developments are put through variety of scenarios virtually , which enables to provide mass optimized and fully functional solution.

After virtual testing the Product is tested under realistic conditions Component/assembly are tested for durability and must meet toughest conditions in test bench/fixture. Final Product will be with absolute optimum result extracted from these developmental tests.

After optimized solution , Final design will be released for Manufacturing and start of regular production
