The Development Process

Pacific Data Systems has a simple, yet structured, process for developing bespoke monitoring and automation systems. Our 4-phase approach removes the resource burden from your company.

 

Phase One - Customer Specification

  • Understand your business processes
  • Define the problem
  • Agree on the desired outcome
  • Prepare a Customer Specification document for sign-off

  

Phase Two - Technical Specification

Prepare a Technical Specification for discussion and sign-off:

  • What COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) components are available?
  • What printed circuit boards / micro controllers can we manufacture?
  • What can we have manufactured by specialist suppliers?
  • How will we integrate all existing and new requirements
  • How long will it take?

  

Phase Three - Manufacturing

  • In-house design and manufacturing of printed circuit boards/micro controllers
  • Source COTS and custom manufactured components from 3rd party suppliers
  • In-house manufacturing and programming
  • In-house testing
  • FAT - Factory Acceptance Testing with customer (if required)
 

  

Phase Four - Implementation

  • Site installation
  • On-site testing and commissioning
  • Training and support
  • System handover
