Development Stage

After risk assessment of the product and its production the development team starts designing. Simulating the circuits, developing the circuit diagram and software as well as the PCB routing will form work packages at this stage. As early as this we will also examine unproblematic integration into the complete system and possible conflicts of installation. In our in-house EMC test laboratory we will determine the electromagnetic compatibility. In the light of developments risk assessments (FMEAs) will be carried out and manufacturability (Design for Manufacturing – DFM) as well as testability will be assessed. First samples will be measured and form the basis for any necessary optimisations. At the same time a concept for the market introduction of the product (logistics, quality, timeline) and the cost calculations for the series and industrialisation stage will be created.

At a Glance

  • Risk assessment of the product and feasibility of key requirements
