About Me

Hello! I’m Faris Saad. Over the years while working for innovative companies both in The Netherlands and abroad my expertise on machine design and product development grew. In 2015 I decided to apply this knowledge on a wider and more varied scale of projects and founded Innovative Engineering. 

From my experience I have learned that the secret of developing technology is learning from the past, you do not want to re-invent the wheel, which, otherwise will only increase your time-to-market and will cost more at the end.

That said, when bringing a new product into the market, you want to be sure that a high quality product is delivered and more importantly, that product needs to be safe. Of course, you are taking these aspects already into account. Nevertheless this takes time. If time or capacity is an issue, Innovative Engineering can provide you a helping hand in product and machine development, prototyping and testing services no matter in which state nor how big or small your project is. For specifics please contact me.

Project Management

Project management is essential for a successful result. Innovative Engineering can provide you the tools and knowledge to stay on track in your development cycle as wel as keeping track of your costs. Based on your company’s culture there are various tools available, upon agreement the right tool and method will be selected.

Product Development

Innovative Engineering can assist you in product development. This entiles design of full products but also on component level I can provide you high quality results that meet your requirements. Either way it is needless to say that manufacturability is the starting point.

Prototyping

As soon as the conceptual phase is over, it is time to compare and validate the considered ideas. Validating a part or component using only a computer screen can sometimes be tricky. That is where prototyping come in handy. Scaled or full scaled models can bring new insight that no LCD screen is capable of. Does that grip really fit ergonomically in my hands?

Test Services

I offer complete test solutions in all sorts. Not only can I provide custom designed equipment, a “carefree” solution based on a list of requirements that is composed beforehand is possible as well.
