Engineering is one of the most successful and skilled system integrators in the manufacturing industry, and our detailed approach has propelled us to this position. There are several steps that must be taken to ensure the success of any system integration project. These steps, when completed, complete a proven process that our team of experts has used to assist companies of all shapes and sizes and across many different industry sectors. The following are just a few of the steps involved in our System Integration approach:
1. Comprehensive Analysis and Collection of Requirements
Every project begins with the task of analysing our client's needs in order to determine which use cases are required to meet the project's stated objectives. To achieve the desired result on a given project, our solution architects methodically walk through every aspect of a client's manufacturing process to understand where they are and, more importantly, where they should be.
2. Design for Technology
After the requirements of a project have been captured and refined, a technical design is created to implement those requirements. Our solution architects collaborate with our technical leads and senior engineers to create a comprehensive solution that is both cost-effective and technically capable of meeting the project's objectives. Manufacturing IT is complex, and only a thorough technical design can ensure project success.
3. Project Administration
Even before the technical design is finished, Engineering's project managers work to ensure that the appropriate resources are assigned to the project. The project manager develops a detailed execution plan that outlines all the technical resources and project milestones. The availability of appropriate technical expertise is critical to the success of a project.
4. Project Execution and Testing
Before delivering the solution to the client, it must be throughly tested to ensure that it meets all the use cases and project specifications. The solution architect will collaborate with the technical leads to develop a detailed test plan that will be carried out to ensure that all project objectives are met.
