and proving the best possible solution to a problem requires clarity of the requirements. It demands a critical approach to the problems needing to be solved and creativity in finding the best solution. By leveraging best practices for product development and project management, c3controls can move through the fuzzy front end of a project, bring clarity to the product and project, and execute at world-class speed.
The term “revolutionary” gets abused. Every day another new process, technology, or idea tumbles down our news feeds carrying the “revolutionary” label. And every day, nearly all of them fall short of this lofty description. But when you start talking to engineers about the effect that smart machinery will have on the manufacturing process, it becomes […]
The end of the development process is an intense and exciting time. Our product is about to be released and our customers are about to put our promise to the test. We know we have developed the product we want to put into the world. It meets all of our required marketing requirement specifications — that […]
Manufacturers rely on the machines they buy from their OEM suppliers to keep their production lines up and running. The control system is the heart of each machine, and is critical to the operation of not only the machine, but the entire production line. The failure of even the smallest control system component in a […]
Picture this process. We’ve gone through all of these steps; we’ve defined the product that we need to manufacture starting with our marketing requirements specifications based on the c3controls promises, our engineering and manufacturing teams have developed multiple concepts, identified the best concept, and detailed the design leading to the design freeze. We’ve built the production prototypes […]
Before holding the first production prototype of a new product design, there are often times a lot of walls to climb over and obstacles to overcome. By the time the design makes it over all of those walls, every element of the design has been optimized: dimensions, materials, cost, ease of assembly, and performance. This […]
