Do you want to boost your products by making them 'smart'? Do you want to know what the possibilities are with electronics? And what is needed to get into smart products?
Many companies are facing fundamental choices to invest in a line of intelligent products. But how to do that, when you have insufficient knowledge of electronics and software?
Hardware & Software Engineering
Are you working on a technically innovative solution, and do you encounter some tricky challenges? Are you looking for the optimal design combination of electronics and embedded software? And are you wondering how to get to a cost-efficient prototype?
We understand you have these questions. The process from idea to working prototype is very challenging. More so when you are working with advanced technology.
A design is not a good design if it cannot be manufactured. Choices about manufacturing are an important cost driver for your final product. To make your product as successful as possible, manufacturing requires special focus, which we cover with industrialization
Industrialisation involves all activities that are needed to transfer a product design to manufacturing. At Zign Innovations we take care of this by:
- early manufacturing involvement throughout the design process (DfM, DfT, DfA)
- in-house development of test equipment like functional testers (FCT)
- arranging the required tooling (i.e. moulds for product enclosures and fixtures used in manufacturing)
- production line setup at one of our proven and trusted manufacturing facilities in Europe or Asia
- production of a pilot run for final verification & validation
- dedicated support by our experts in product compliance testing and certification
Product development and successful transfer to manufacturing and is all about collaboration. Throughout the years we have build partnerships with a selective number of suppliers, who are not only capable in their field of expertise, but also have shown the ability to work successfully together on the most challenging projects.
Lifecycle managementIn our approach, lifecycle management is the continuing process to ensure that your product keeps meeting your market’s requirements. Over the lifetime of a product, there are multiple factors which can influence the product and your ability to bring the product to market. Especially supply related issues can severely impact your business, for example when components are out of stock, or end of life, or when lead times are changing rapidly.
Test tooling development
To ensure product quality, an effective approach to product testing is key, both during development and production. In many cases, testing during development and production testing are considered separately.
