Industrial Designers plan, design, develop and document industrial, commercial or consumer products for manufacture with particular emphasis on ergonomic (human) factors, marketing considerations and manufacturability, and prepare designs and specifications of products for mass or batch production.
Canton Fair is organised by the China Foreign Trade Centre in Guangzhou, China. Canton Fair is a trade expo for win-win cooperation between different countries, where entrepreneurs, wholesalers and manufacturers connect with China, share opportunities and pursue common development. It has contributed significantly to the economic and trade ties between China and the rest of the world.
A patent is not necessary for every situation. You can use contracts and trade secrets to avoid using a patent to protect your invention. However, if these other forms of intellectual property protection don’t give you the protection you need, you will need to follow the above process of filing for a patent.
Prototypes stimulate the end product and will detect any performance failures in the early stages of manufacturing, which will save time, money and material down the track. In prototyping, the products durability, functionality and manufacturability is tested.

Rapid prototyping (RP) is the fast fabrication of a product that closely matches the final product you are designing. RP uses CAD, 3D printing and other manufacturing technologies to bring an idea into the physical realm.
DFM involves efficiently designing or engineering an object, generally during the product design stage, when it is easier and less expensive to do so, to reduce manufacturing costs.
Assembling is a manufacturing process where finished products are past through stages/workstations of a factory where parts are added in sequence until the final product is completed for distribution.
Design led manufacturing is when designers and engineers consider the whole life cycle of a product from functionality, durability and the manufacturability of the product. The design process considers the potential challenges that manufacturing the product will incur.
