PatternFox’s Lean Bio-Inspired Design℠ practice accelerates your adoption of BID by applying our expertise and design processes to your unique design challenge.
We begin with thoroughly understanding the problem at hand; defining the problem in terms of systems, functions, environments, specifications, performance criteria, contradictions and constraints. Once we have a firm grasp of the requirements, limitations and trade-offs, we dig into existing biological research to find plants and animals that thrive despite similar problems.
During this process, we are able to access the most advanced BID research from around the world as well as our exclusive global network of experts and partners.
As we uncover potential solutions, each mechanism is categorized into a biological pattern and its potential is assessed against the detailed requirements, limitations and trade-offs of the stated problem, giving you deeper insight into the biology with greater speed and precision.
