Our Development Philosophy
Gestalt, a German word with no direct English equivalent, translates loosely to “shape” or “form.” Gestalt psychologist Kurt Koffka summarized the central precept of the movement as, “the whole is something else than the sum of its parts.”
The principles of Gestalt are embedded in the Simplexity philosophy. When individual parts are brought together, connected, and allowed to interact, a system with its own properties and processes emerges.
The name Simplexity and our motto, “simplifying the complex,” are based on this notion of addressing the parts of the whole system in concert. This spans initial discovery, prototyping, proactively factoring in DFM requirements, running NPI builds, and eventual full hand-off to contract manufacturing. We see ourselves as a trusted partner with a depth of expertise in product architecture, complete system design, and manufacturability.
Organizationally, we also believe that a multi-disciplinary team is more powerful than a group of individuals. Our engineers collaborate across our four West Coast offices.
