Smart Innovation Process

Open Sourcing and Tech Watch to fuel differentiation
arpa operates an international watch on a daily basis to select the best technology partners. Our aim is to identify the latest innovations to provide our customers with the largest choice of technologies to cultivate their differentiation strategy.

Valuable Innovation
Our aim is to develop valuable innovations with strong market potential, which truly address genuine consumer pain points or frustrations that have been uncovered through our consumer research program. arpa’s innovations have been widely adopted on the market and never remain only pure inventions.

Co-creation is in our DNA
Our customers are involved at the earliest stage of the development process. Our solutions are the outcome of partnering with you on:
– product range evolution and functional feature selection,
– open-sourcing technology selection,
– exclusive configuration, design and aesthetical aspects.
We co-create demonstrators to maximize the qualification of the project-to-be-launched. This co-creation approach enhances new product development speed while diminishing product launch risks

Time-to-market capability
This smart innovation process combined with arpa 4.0 production agility allows us to achieve time-to-market lead times between 8 weeks and less than 1 year.
