Improving Performance and Exceeding Project Requirements
Consumers are constantly demanding more performance from the products they use, forcing OEMS to innovate and optimize their systems. As consumers require new products to last longer on faster battery charges or less fuel, OEMs strive to improve size, weight, power, cost, reliability and overall performance to meet increasing functionality expectations to stay competitive. Boyd helps optimize products for improved customer experience by implementing creative design and manufacturing methodologies or developing intelligent control systems. Intelligent systems typically include sensors, cameras, and human machine interfaces (HMIs) like screens, all of which rely on optically clear solutions to further optimize performance.

Screen, Battery & Fuel Efficiency
Improving component performance and efficiency helps manufacturers reduce operating costs and the cost of ownership of their products. This is especially important for products that operate on batteries and fuel as it also has the potential to constrain user behavior.
More products are incorporating screens to improve human machine interfaces, which can be an additional power drain either on a battery, fuel tank, or an electric bill. Increasing the efficiency of screens reduces this power drain and improves readability for the user.
By enabling systems to run faster or longer on a single charge or refill, OEMs improve customer adoption and user experience. Boyd has a variety of technologies that help manufacturers lightweight products, reduce aerodynamic or hydrodynamic drag, or improve battery driven systems like mobile screens by increasing efficiency. With more efficient systems, your product is more likely to outlast the competition.
Learn how Boyd improves Screen, Battery, and Fuel Efficiency in a broad range of systems with wholistic design and manufacturing techniques. View more specific resources for efficiency in the category tabs above.
SWAP-CR & Performance (Size, Weight, and Power, Cost & Reliability)
Customers demand more powerful, lightweight products in smaller sizes. Handheld, mobile, or portable systems are especially sensitive to Size, Weight, and Power consumption (SWAP). In order to stay competitive, manufacturers must manage costs to keep prices down while still offering reliable products that don't hinder customer experience. These core parameters are commonly abbreviated as SWAP-CR as products typically need to balance each of these to optimize performance and overall product success.
Learn more about how Boyd's engineering and manufacturing teams utilize every technology, technique, and process innovation at their disposal to help you optimize your system to meet demanding SWAP-CR requirements. Additional SWAP-CR resources are listed in the category tabs at the top of this section.
Intelligent Control Systems
Manufacturers continually improve their products and systems to drive more performance. One method of optimizing these systems is to implement Intelligent System Controls. These systems utilize sensors and software to adjust performance in response to variable conditions. Intelligent controls help systems meet moving performance targets and limit excessive loads to improve reliability and lifetime of components.
