Be Known will gather information about potential customers. It is a very important component of a business strategy. Market research is a key factor to maintain competitiveness over competitors. Market research provides important information to identify and analyze the market need, market size and competition. Market research, which includes social and opinion research, is the systematic gathering and interpretation of information about individuals or organizations using statistical and analytical methods and techniques of the applied social sciences to gain insight or support decision making.
The creative Be Known team offers concept sketches services to customers. The goal of concept sketching is to capture enough information for the Engineer to complete a satisfactory 3D model and drawing. What this means is that the artist must know in advance the process and techniques that he or she is going to adopt even before making the concept sketch. Be Known has many talented people to assure your ideas are put down on paper!

This involves producing 3D solid/surface files and optional 2D Technical Drawings. We are able to create manufacture capable 3D solid/surfaces in IGES and/or STEP format for mechanical and engineering down stream. For this, we will require the client to provide us with the settings and parameters for the mechanical CAD/CAM system. We can also provide STL files that are suitable for rapid prototyping purposes.

Part Drawings are used to express the details that are critical to the form, fit and function of a part. These Drawings are critical details to assure a part being produced meets the requirements set forth in a design specification. Also, depending on the complexity of a part and its assembly, the drawings are a way to also verify required tolerances.

A prototype is designed to test and trial a new design to enhance precision by system analysts and users. Prototyping serves to provide specifications for a real, working system rather than a theoretical one. Prototypes can also be built to look and feel like actual products for pictures and early stage marketing.

There are many different manufacturing processes in the world to support so many different ways to make products. Be Known and DROSUN has worked very hard to incorporate many of these processes in house. Drosun Facility is one of the few complete in- house manufacturers. We out source very little. If we don't have the equipment required to do a job we can buy it! A key to our speed is our ability to work together and design, build all molds, dies, and fixtures, assemble lines with our key long time relations in proven manufacturers.

In manufacturing, much effort has gone into quality of engineering by carefully optimizing the design and production methods. There is still only one method that makes absolutely sure that every item coming off the production line fulfills expectations. That method is production line testing, where every unit produced gets checked as part of its production cycle. Many products also require third party testing. Be Known has several resources for this in China.

Life functional testing, FDA testing, UL etc.
Sourcing products from China can seem a daunting task. With effective communication and planning outsourcing can be safe and cost effective. Be Known spends allot of time with our existing resources in China as well as developing new sources. Depending on the volumes of a project we dictate the type of source we will use.

Marketing is the process of communicating the value of a product or service to customers, for the purpose of selling that product or service. While big corporations spend millions of dollars promoting their brands, few small businesses and startup companies have taken the time to rigorously determine their brand positioning.
