Design thinking is our foundation mindset and methodology that takes place extensively in ARCOM for producing more practical, creative resolution of problems and issues that looks for an improved future result.
In this regard we exercise the design thinking in ARCOM as a form of solution-based, or solution-focused thinking that starts with the goal or what is meant to be achieved, side by side with the problems we intended to solve. Then, by focusing on the present and the future, the parameters of the problem and the resolutions are explored, simultaneously.
And whilst we depend on the analytical thinking as a scientific approach for the detailed design elements and problems, we approach also the design thinking as a creative process based around the "building up" of ideas. This eliminates the risks of failure and encourages maximum input and participation between ARCOM teams and the customer in the ideation and prototype phases. Outside the box thinking is encouraged also in these processes since this lead to creative solutions.
Design thinking process in ARCOM production factory can be illustrated in seven stages: define, research, ideate, prototype, choose, implement, and learn. Within these seven stages, problems are framed, the right questions are asked, more ideas are created, and the best answers are chosen. The stages aren't linear; they occur simultaneously and can be repeated.
