Electronic Product Development Cycle
A clear and comprehensive requirement definition is quite often the difference between a successful go to market product and an aborted prototype. None of our clients have all the details figured out at the start, and that is natural. It is our job to ask the right questions to help the client define the requirement. It takes experience to ask the right questions. We have the experience.
As with homes and buildings, a good electronic product architecture is all about planning the best possible product in both form and function within the constraints of the client. Most optimum architecture is possible only with the right selection of hardware components, technologies and a firmware to complement the hardware.
Design and Development
Electronics hardware design and Firmware development is all about the right strategies early in the product development and good quality engineering. For an embedded or IoT product hardware and firmware must complement each other very closely. A good hardware design is fundamental for reliable firmware function. Conversely good firmware helps best utilization of a quality hardware design.
As the name implies a prototype is sample of the actual product. Our aim with a prototype is to incorporate as much the final product into the prototype, in the shortest possible time and at the lowest cost. The key is to have a clarity about the objectives for the prototype. Based on the complexity and the clarity around the product it can even take a few iterations of incremental prototypes.
Validation and Verification
Once the prototype is done the client has a physical product for V&V (Validation and Verification). At this stage the client can confirm the form, function and price targets for the final product will be met. Based on V&V the client can do finer course correction if needed. For us it helps to reaffirm our development work with client expectations. The prototype V&V also helps in defining a clear strategy and timelines for a go to market product.
A small volume pre-production manufacturing run and deployment in real world conditions, is essential. It gives vital insights into device performance; supply chain and manufacturing bottle necks if any. Many a times learnings from device performance on the field can add to incorporation of fail safes and exception handling features that are only identifiable with real world deployments.
Testing and Certification
Robust and thorough testing from a unit level to a complete system level is critical. Yet, testing is often the most understated and underestimated part of the development cycle for various time and cost reasons. We understand that testing has serious implications for the brand image, safety, security and eventually to time and cost as well. Compliance to industry standards and regulatory certifications is a mandatory requirement for many products based on category and country of usage.
Production is all about quality and efficiency. Quality through sourcing responsibly and partnering with the right manufacturers. Efficiency through the right vendor and supply chain management at every stage of the production. The target is zero-wastage and zero-defect manufacturing while maintaining shortest lead times. Technology and tools available today help us get very close to these goals.
