includes a “Development Agreement” – between TechLace and our Costumers & Partners, in order to ease any Non-Disclosed “Product Related Data” sharing, during development procedures, where Techlace is not responsible for the loss, maintenance or return of prototypes, drawings or any other materials submitted by Customers. Nevertheless, our approach includes data recording, identified as “Costumer Information Management”.
All Customers and Partners who start with a new concept or particular invention go through our trade secret Development Agreement process, before Licensing or selling on local or international markets.
TechLace is obligated to warn possible clients, that any new development does not typically result in license agreements, market sales or certain profit to the Inventor.
Although TechLace’s thorough analysis of the feasibility, marketability, patentability or profitability of any submitted ideas, it cannot be considered as a guarantee.
TechLace’s research and development services are provided by an upfront fee paid by the Customer or Partner and a contingent fee, or a percentage of royalties obtained by the client, if there will be any License Agreements, Sales on any market or Profit.
Company name; postal address; general manager or legal representative are the parties to this Nondisclosure Agreement. They expect to disclose confidential information to each other for the purpose of evaluating a potential business relationship.
The parties are only allowed to use the confidential information for the above purpose.
Confidential information is information that either party has developed or obtained and has taken reasonable steps to protect from unauthorized use or disclosure.
Confidential information is NOT information that (a) the recipient of the confidential information already knew through proper means; (b) is publicly available through no fault of the recipient; (c) the recipient rightfully receives from a third party with no confidentiality duty; or (d) the recipient develops independently.
Both parties must use a reasonable degree of care to protect any confidential information they receive from each other. They must protect this information from unauthorized use or disclosure. They are not allowed to share this information with anyone except their employees, agents, directors or third party contractors who need to know it for the purpose of this agreement and who have agreed in writing to keep the information confidential and only use it for that same purpose.
If compelled by law or court order, either party may disclose the confidential information if it provides reasonable prior notice to the other, unless a court forbids such notice.
This agreement applies to confidential information either party discloses to the other within 1 year of this agreement’s signing. After that, for an additional 1 year, each party must continue to protect, from unauthorized use or disclosure, confidential information that was disclosed during the first year. However, the parties’ obligation to protect trade secrets is perpetual.
The parties are under no obligation to do business together. Neither party becomes a customer, contractor, partner or agent of the other because of this agreement. Neither party acquires any intellectual property right or license under this agreement.
This agreement is between the two parties named above. Neither party may delegate, transfer or assign this agreement to a third party without the written consent of the other.
This is the parties’ entire agreement on this matter, superseding all previous negotiations or agreements. It can only be changed by mutual written consent.
The laws of the state of Portugal govern this agreement and any disputes arising from it will be handled exclusively in courts in Lisboa. The prevailing party in any dispute will be entitled to recover reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees.
Signing a copy of this agreement, physical or electronic, will have the same effect as signing an original.
starts by “Scheduling and Planning”. In business and engineering, Product Development (PD) is a process of bringing a new product to market. A product is a set of benefits offered for exchange and can be tangible (that is, something physical you can touch) or intangible (like a service, experience or knowledge).
Next we need to perform a “Market Review” or segment product review. This information will illustrate how corporations are advertising, packaging and marketing similar products. Although extensive, these reviews may not reveal every product for sale or under development world-wide.
Last but not least, a “Patent & Trade Mark Review”. Patenting an invention upfront is not always the best approach. Techlace will conduct a patent review for use during brainstorming, design and product development. This review can be useful but not determine its patentability.
The structure of scientific collaboration networks form “small worlds”, in which randomly chosen pairs are typically separated by only a short path of acquaintances and demonstrate the presence of clustering when highlight a number of apparent differences in the patterns of collaboration between the fields studied are set to be the next procedure steps, starting by the Research and Development R&D, generating a new product within the overall strategic process of product life-cycle management, used to maintain or grow market share, followed by “Design or Design Review”, The main objective of design as a strategic activity is to produce one coherent message with all presented artifacts.
Although it is not a science with controlled experiments and analysis on a particular phenomenon, design deals with the planning and construction of the artificial world, carried out through extensive use of modeling such as (sketches, CAD models, prototypes and make-ups). “Proof-of-Principle Prototype (Model)” Also called a working model, it will attempt to simulate the final design, aesthetics, materials and functionality of the intended product.
Generally, not durable enough or suitable for use by representative users or consumers but suitable for use in market research executive reviews and approval, packaging mock-ups, and photo shoots for sales literature.
“Prototype Simulation and Approval”, due to the materials used, the prototype models are intended for internal decision making of some aspects like visual appearance, choice of materials, color, surface textures, range of motion, mechanics, etc.
Therefore, functional prototype may be reduced in size (scaled down) in order to reduce costs and allows last-minute improvements to be made before larger production runs are ordered.
“Industrial Technology, Industrial Process and Tools”, Supply chain management is also an essential area for academic research due to its impact on firms competing in today’s global economy.
Managing the flow of materials from supply sources to the ultimate customer represents a major challenge for today’s managers. To assist managers, the concept of supply chain management has been adopted by many business leaders as an important way to assist in designing, planning, and controlling the network of facilities and tasks that comprise the many stages of the supply chain, “Raw Materials or Spare-part’s Supply” as well as “In-house or Outsource Quality Control”. Quality control is a process for maintaining standards and not for creating them. Standards are maintained through a process of selection, measurement and correction of work, so that only those products or services which emerge from the process meet the standards.
In simple terms, quality control prevents undesirable changes being present in the in the quality of the product or service being supplied.
Product Launch, is and has to be the most important step of the process whereas from “Product positioning strategy” marketing decisions and actions intended to create a particular place for the product or service in the market and in the minds of Consumers, a product positioning strategy may attempt to differentiate a marketing offer from a competitor’s or to appear similar to it. “Product differentiation”, a marketing philosophy in which the seller views the market as a homogeneous whole, but produces two or more products differing in attributes (price, style, quality, etc), designed to offer a variety rather than to satisfy the needs and wants of different market segments. “Corporation Reviews” whereas a solid “Portfolio” and an appealing “Brand or Branding”, a name, sign, symbol or design, or all combined, used to identify a product and to differentiate it from similar. The image that a sponsor wants a particular brand to have; the desired positioning of the brand in the market and in the minds of consumers alike, feelings, moods, emotions and connotations to others, is of its utmost importance for everybody’s’ success.
