Although JPM can work either independently or jointly, most work is somewhere between the two: JPM receives the customer’s ideas or rough designs; conducts a needs analysis as rough or refined as the project may require; studies the engineering problems; makes engineering material recommendations; makes concept drawings; produces a CAD model in SolidWorks; conducts finite and stress analyses; does engineering drawings; crafts prototypes; tests form, fit and function; and so forth to completion, as required by the customer.

In this process, JPM involves the customer or his representatives as much or as little as they wish.
