Development

We develop a solution that is tailored to your needs with you.


Not only will you benefit from the development of a product that is driven by the climate of the market, you can also rely on our competencies thereafter in the areas of manufacture and distribution. New developments are often associated with investment and risk. That is why we offer various financing options. We adhere to our iterative development process according to ISO 9001 and go through the corresponding project phases of concept, feasibility planning, development, design transfer, verification and finally validation one by one. Each phase transition is documented and approved by the project team.
 
 
Concept
 
After a joint and accurate clarification of the needs has been drawn up, we create a specification (intended use) for your project with you. In addition, we discuss and evaluate the various types of financing available.
 
 
Feasibility planning
 
The risks for the project are systematically analysed and weighed. The knowledge gained from this analysis will be taken into account again in each phase and if necessary revised. Also, a rough project plan is drawn up, which shows the milestones of the project. Models or prototypes are made where needed for the next phase or as the basis for the decision making process. At the end of this phase, a specification is worked out from the documentation previously created, which will be reviewed and, if need be, revised at the end of each phase.
 
 
Development
 
The product is developed on the basis of the specification. The extent to which our expertise in the fields of engineering, electrical engineering, software development, CAD design, sheet metal production and assembly technology are applied in varying combinations depends on the complexity and requirements of the project. During this phase, the client is kept up to date about the current state of development. We place great value on open and regular communication.
 
A prototype is created during the development process. The subsequent development is further refined on the basis of this prototype and the customer requirements are verified according to the specification. Prototypes are essential for testing the theory in practice.
 
 
Design transfer, verification
 
All documents previously drawn up are reviewed and used for generating the manufacturing data. Depending on the customer requirements and the nature and complexity of the product, the manufacturing documents usually include: drawings, parts lists, assembly instructions, testing instructions, packing instructions, software and other applicable documents. At this stage, the 0-series is tested, approved or rejected. Another component in the verification process is the external acceptance by the customer or a testing organisation. To this end we have the pleasure of working with TÜV Süd GmbH. Different standards and guidelines must be adhered to depending on the type of product, such as for example the EMC machinery directive or the SUVA security policies.

 
Validation
 
Where agreed with the customer, the product is validated. In other words, the suitability of the product for the intended use is tested in practice, in the field or on the customer’s premises. After the validation has been completed, the project is concluded with a final report.
