Developing concepts requires extensive experience in the main topic combined with skills from areas realted to the main one.


A good example is a human-machine interface that requires lots of technical knowledge combined with understanding a machine operator persona. Technical knowledge will specify all required parameters, whilst understanding human nature will make screens easy to understand and engaging for operators.

The picture shows a detail from the concept development procedure to determine detectable differences in different versions of cogs after they were thermally treated in an oven.

Detection at an early stage in the manufacturing process was required to prevent final product assembly using the wrong part.

The concept was developed for an electrical motor manufacturer supplying motors for the automotive industry and electrical vehicles (e.g. fork lifters).


Our engineering projects use the V model methodology for quality check throughout all project phases.


Additional to the project documentation, we enjoy developing applications for PLCs, HMIs, and SCADA applications. Our preferred choice is Siemens equipment but can develop applications for equipment of other manufacturers as well.

At the project level, customers will typically engage our skills when user requirement specification (URS) is needed, or when lower-level documents such as functional design specification, or software design specification (FDS, SDS, itd..) need composing or reviewing.

Our preferred tool to develop PLC and HMI applications, as well as SCADA packages, is Siemens TIA Portal.

This is a modern concept programming tool adhering to standard IEC-1131. Individual sections of the package are directly linked to project documentation ensuring accurate design to specification.


Moving up the V model during commissioning, all activities adhere to testing documentation specified during the project design phase.


A good practice is to hire a commissioning team locally to the site working under the supervision of an expert fully conversant with project details. A supervisor will make sure the installation is done to plan and prepare the installation qualification document (IQ) and make sure all parts of the site acceptance test (SAT) are tested and signed off. Preparing the site for a performance acceptance test.
