    This article reports on various steps to transform a concept to a product. A sound intensity probe based on a micro-machined acoustic sensor "the Microflown" is used as an example. Requirements for the micromachined part are simplicity and uncomplicated processing to reach a high throughput. For monitoring the quality, simple and reliable characterisation tools should be designed as well. To gain credibility independent labs should test the product. The product should offer a complete solution that competes in overall costs and performance, and it must be possible to connect it into existing systems.
