Technical Consultancy Services
Smaller establishments have significant competitive advantage over larger ones. They can grow on innovation and rapid developments. Their fewer management layers mean they are generally more flexible and faster to respond to fresh ideas and opportunities. However, in some fields of specialist electronics, organisations can fail to capitalise on this competitive advantage.
You can utilise us for a specific task or employ our expertise and experience in a broader role. These are some of the key services we offer:
Proof-of-Concepts and Prototypes
We can provide rapid design and construction of proof-of-concepts and prototypes. We understand the importance of producing working examples urgently. New ideas and methods always need to be tested and evaluated early to allow other parts of the project to move onward. This may be to determine general feasibility, direction of development, estimate cost, or a mixture of these. We can produce demonstration PoC examples in double-quick time.
Documentation and Approval Applications
This can be a minefield, and has caused many good ideas to founder. We have experience in all fields of approvals processes, and documentation for hardware, software, and trials. ISO, IEC, CE marking, 60601, FDA (USA), EU Directives, EMC, etc. Also Intellectual Property (IP) and patents, which must be secured at the earliest stage.
A focussed and appropriately detailed specification authored by us minimises costly 'mission creep' and potential client-provider 'expectation gap' - both being common causes of project delays or even complete failure.
Technical Project Planning
From concept through to execution, our projects are well planned and documented. A range of scenarios can be examined at an early stage to get a clearer view of ultimate cost, and realistic delivery dates. We take a business and cost-focussed approach, exploring all options in both technologies and methods. Not just for one specific field of your application, but searching-out other areas which may also provide eventual financial rewards too.
Product/Industrial Design for Market
Your market will influence how the product will look and feel, which ultimately determines the size and shape of all the components in the system. Good and economic product design requires experience, and we have that experience at your disposal. A full service from market to product to production.
Independent Technical Evaluation
Where required, we can provide an independent assessment of your project and all aspects connected with it, producing clear concise reports on progress, with recommendations for future direction. We can provide independent technical evaluation of complete or part systems and 'Third Eye' Engineering Design Reviews.
Verification and Validation
Verification and validation of hardware, software and mechanics is often planned to take place in the latter stages of the project, but should really begin at the beginning, and follow along in stages along the whole project path.
Business Planning and Funding
We can help with detailed business planning and strategy. Finding sources of possible investment, with contacts. Producing reports for informing or influencing funding bodies and investors.
Often forgotten until much later down the development path, Production is the stage of going from prototype to making saleable units. This process needs to encompass not just assembly methods, but also procurement of components, test regimes, and testing. We can assist in sourcing components, subsystem providers, assembly and testing.
