How can Dale help?
- Re-engineer mature product to protect revenue by updating designs for continued manufacturability, enhance performance and implement new features, certify to current standards, and create a platform for continuing development.
- Bring control and management capability to spreadsheet bills-of-materials for a new product by consolidating data in a Digital Twin using a PLM or ERP system, where costs, supply chain and changes can be readily analyzed and managed.
- Evaluate your business processes and facilitate your Digital Transformation.
- Develop traceable product requirements and cooresponding verification and validation test plans, and manufacturing test procedures.
- Manage the transition from a new product prototype or proof-of-concept to a manufacturable design, and manage new product introduction to stable reliable manufacturing and sales, accelerating return on investment.
- Develop a rapid and cost-effective proof-of-concept to validate a new product idea.
- Provide guidance for incorporating open source software into your business and product development process, and benefit from the open source paradigm of cooperative development to reduce development cost, schedule and risk.
- Create clarity and focus for product development by facilitating creation of product and technology roadmaps, product cost models and project plans.
- Develop engineering and manufacturing processes for compliance with business and regulatory requirements.
