Assessments, Discoveries, and Red Flag Report Analysis
DE is a process oriented creative company - a unique and powerful combination as a technology solutions partner.
Our assessment services seek to align your engineering, marketing, and business goals of a product development effort leveraging our teams creativity and technology experience. The outcomes and deliverables we provide included effective communication at the engineering and executive level.
We are not just great at hardware design, firmware, and prototyping!
We provide support for:
- documentation and clarification of requirements to fit your statement of need
- a clear statement of work to meet the goals of the initiative
- beautiful artistic concepts renderings to capture your next generation product vision
- user experience concept graphics and wire frames to capture the use case of the user interface
- industrial design concept drawings and professional CAD that is designed for manufacturing not just concepts
- rough order of magnitude (RoM) electronic assembly production cost estimates early in the process to validate your target cost objectives
- root cause analysis of existing issues that you are living with now - we can do a red flag analysis and provide recommendations for solutions to those issues
- turn key engineering test support and compliance for UL, SAE, EtherCAT ETG, Bluetooth, FCC, CAN-CiA, CANOpen, ETL (Lighting), CSA, CE Marking, MIL-STD-461, MIL-STD-XXXX suchas MIL-ST461 and MIL-ST-8100, IEC such as IEC60601 pre-FDA compliance of medical devices
- support for risk analysis FMEA efforts
- support for electronic component life cycle, failure analysis, supplier risk
- production supplier recommendations and evaluations
- production test planning
- market customer paint point identification to technology solution mapping
- electronics component supply chain and obsolescence risk analysis an solution identification
- model based systems engineering (MBSE) and electronic systems architecture development
Our goal is to align your strategic vision for your company or product market niche input with a clear design plan path to achieve your company goals effectively and efficiently to meet your growth and return on investment (ROI) - so that we can make recommendations that fit your business needs for the future.
Ask our team about:
- Red Flag Review - this is part of our Quality Management System (QMS) and includes an engineering level assessment and review of a product design that you would like us to review. After a non-disclosure (NDA) is on file, we will asses your engineering design files and make recommendations that may include component availability, obsolescence replacement recommendations, PCB layout review and recommendations, mechanical ruggedization, design for manufacturability(DFM), electrical power system and grounding, EMC/RFI compliance for radiated emissions, susceptibility, conducted emissions, electro-static discharge (ESD), environmental testing evaluation, thermal and vibration factors, materials selection and RF compliance, testing considerations and quality control factors.
- Discovery - requirements capture, block diagrams, critical component and supplier identification including a rough order of magnitude bill of materials (RoM-BoM) to validate your target production cost objectives and estimate of non-recurring engineering (NRE) design cost level of effort
