Our Design Approach
Proficia uses an intelligent and systematic approach to engineering design. We start with understanding the customer’s needs and identify the constraints. We research what solutions are available on the market and report back on existing and potential custom solutions. For custom designs, we prepare 2D and 3D models, and upon customer approval, we either build a prototype or move on to building the system, depending on the constraints.
When a customer approaches Proficia with a design challenge, we have the capacity to offer not just the design and build, but a range of supporting services typical of an engineering consulting firm.
We have project managers with experience and certification in both traditional (PMP) and agile (Scrum) approaches, and we offer our customers the option of using our Redmine project management system for their work with us.
For embedded systems that will be manufactured at scale, we can offer product management, including product design research, 2D and 3D computer-aided drafting (CAD) models, and rapid prototyping.
We can include a data-gathering component in our devices, design a statistical model for analyzing that data, and integrate a custom or off-the-shelf tool for data reporting and visualization.
Mechanical and Materials Design
For larger systems that involve substantial mass and forces, we perform stress and structural analysis in the process of our design and consult on appropriate materials, with a special focus on sustainable choices in materials sourcing and lifecycle.
Troubleshooting and Repair
We also come to the rescue when a customer has an existing embedded system that needs maintenance. We troubleshoot hardware and software issues and perform repairs.
