The design of any product is critical to its future success. To ensure the best possible results we implement a stepped approach to the design. This enables enhancements and improvements throughout the development period;
The initial stage of any project where the foundations are laid. We discuss the product and how it will work. From this we build up our interpretation of the performance and requirements of the project. We are also able to suggest additional features or potential issues.
Once we are satisfied we have a good feel for the product we will formulate a way forward. This proposal summarises our understanding of the product and states the product specifications. It describes technically any special techniques or technology we plan to use. From this we can approximate a time-scale for the work and so produce a quote.
On receipt of purchase we will initiate the design stage the electronics. Once a working prototype has been manufactured it is submitted to the client for evaluation. The project can then either move to the production of units, or have additional features added based on client feed-back. If the client requires only a working prototype, then this will be the final hand over .
When the client is satisfied with the product any final amendments are made to the documentation to ensure everything is correct. The documentation is then handed to the client, this includes everything required to manufacture the product such as schematics, Gerber files (PCB), bills of material, and firmware source code.
On acceptance of final designs we will begin unit production. Volumes can range from 1's to 100's, and can also outsource higher volumes at competitive prices, and because we explicitly understand the design, are often in a better position to resolve any issues quicker then our customers could.
