Design Services: Implementation


At the project implementation phase all decisions that significantly impact the business case have been resolved. Implementation is primarily concerned with lower level design, construction, and testing of tangible goods. Implementation is preceded with the development of a project plan that identifies resources, tasks, timelines, milestones, costs, methodology and low-level risk mitigation contingencies. Critical path analysis reveals key tasks that must not slip for the project to be on time. The project plan is essentially a recipe for the creation of client deliverables.  


For medium to large projects Codified Telenumerics follows a gating process outlined below. Pass your pointing device over the flow chart box of interest for further information.


Phase 1: Requirements Analysis

In an implementation contract "Requirements Analysis" is usually performed as part of the work proposal.Phase 2: Design

Lower level design issues are resolved and detailed drawings and reports are created.
For component level design projects, schematics, BOM, state diagrams, test strategies, and circuit descriptions are furnished.Phase 3: Construction

The construction phase involves the production of prototype quantities of subassemblies and assemblies. 
For component level design, PCB layout, firmware, and embedded software are developed at this time.Phase 4: Debug & Test

The testing phase fully qualifies the design with respect to customer requirements. Testing may include go/no-go, parametric, beta testsite, standards conformance, thermal, environmental, RF emission, signal integrity, reliability, and statistical sampling.Phase 5: Production Release

Readying the prototype for production requires the creation of test procedures, fixtures, and test equipment procurement. In many cases the prototype itself must undergo a revision to render debug modifications permanent.Phase 6: Technical Support

Technical support may be required during the initial product handoff to the client. The client may also request that Codified Telenumerics be available on an ongoing basis for continuous engineering support.

Gate 1: 

The client indicates acceptance of the requirements analysis by signing a contract.Gate 2:

A design review is held with the client to ensure alignment. Modifications to the design due to requirement non-compliance should be made at this point.Gate 3:

A second design review is held with the client to ensure desin-construction alignment. A non-tested prototype is delivered at this gate.Gate 4:

At the end of the debug and test phase the client should have a fully functional prototype that meets product performance criteria. All documentation should be updated to reflect any design and constuction modifications made as a result of debugging. Gate 5:

At the end of the production release phase the client should have a workable manufacturing and testing process that meets stipulated reqirements.
